130701 European tour; London date announced
We are excited to announce that FatCat's 'post-classical' imprint 130701 Records will be represented in live venues across Europe in May by Johann Johannsson, Hauschka and Dustin O'Halloran. Included in this stretch of dates is a triple headline bill at London's beautiful Barbican Hall on May 18th.
Each artist here occupies their own unique outcrop of the broad-reaching 'post-classical' field. Where O'Halloran's hauntingly evocative string arrangements and solo piano pieces gently, quietly break hearts, Hauschka (aka Dusseldorf-based prepared-piano player Volker Bertelmann) experiments playfully, exploratively with timbre and rhythm, allowing extra-textual clicks and tics into his sonic journeys through organic / electronic modernist piano. Johann Johannsson, contrastingly, offers a study of stillness and richness of texture - soft electronics and restrained, harmonic use of a full string quartet subtly permeate and underpin his own sonic collages.
Full details for the European dates will be announced in the coming weeks, but for now, please head here for more details and ticket info for the Barbican performance.
