In the run-up to Rewire 2019, the international festival for adventurous music and The Hague’s Korzo Theater extend their collaborative concert series on Saturday, 16 February. For this thirteenth edition, Rewire x Korzo welcomes British electronic musician Vessel, who will transform his acclaimed new album Queen of Golden Dogs into an immersive audiovisual experience with the help of Portuguese visual artist Pedro Maia, and London-based cellist and electronic composer Lucy Railton.
Bristol-born electronic musician Vessel heads to The Hague in support of his critically-acclaimed new album Queen of the Golden Dogs. Heavily indebted to a newfound infatuation with chamber music, the album channels traces of his bass-heavy, electroacoustic signatures into an extraordinary fusion of contemporary classical instrumentation, choral arrangements, synth explosions and throbbing electronics. At Rewire x Korzo, he will transform the new album into a dizzying live audiovisual experience with the help of Portuguese visual artist Pedro Maia in their only performance on Dutch soil.
Hailed as one of the leading instrumentalists working in experimental and electronic music, British cellist and composer Lucy Railton is a prolific collaborator whose practice is rooted in in 25 years of classical instrumentalism. Her solo debut Paradise 94, which was released to widespread acclaim in March, sources field recordings and found sounds alongside modified cello, church organs and 80s synths, and weaves them into a distinctly modern approach to the traditions of musique concrète. Performing solo at Rewire x Korzo, she will unveil her unique electroacoustic practice.
This edition of Rewire x Korzo takes place in the run-up to the ninth edition of Rewire festival, which transpires in The Hague from 29 to 31 March.
