Sónar 2014: Neneh Cherry + James Holden + Audion...

  • Music, Dance and electronic

Time Out says

The third and final day of Sónar by Day at the Fira de Montjuïc is full of expectations, with Neneh Cherry (5pm) presenting her first solo album in nearly 20 years, the daring 'Blank Project' (2014) produced Kieran Hebden, who will also perform at Sónar with his project Four Tet and with a little help from British post-rock and space-dance duo RocketNumberNine. British  electronics wizard James Holden (8.30pm) presents 'The Inheritors', his stunning new album. We'll also see Audion (6.45pm), Matthew Dear's best-known side project; for his new show, 'Subverticul', Dear worked with Heather Shaw and Alex Lazarus of Vita Motus Design Studio to put on an audiovisual experience that reconfigures the way electronic music is performed live. Also among the highlights is the performance of Canadian master Kid Koala (5.30pm), who's back at Sónar to present 'Vinyl Vaudeville 2.0', a new show that's a homage to the world of cabaret with showgirls, robots, and elements of vaudeville and burlesque. And don't forget that this is also the last day you can check out the high-impact sound system brought to you by Despacio – a six-hour session of James Murphy and 2manydjs playing vinyl from their private collections.
