Sónar 2016: ANOHNI + Jean-Michel Jarre + James Blake + Flume...

  • Music, Dance and electronic

Time Out says

Sónar moves from the Fira de Montjuïc venue to the Fira Gran Via when the sun goes down and until it comes back up again, with live performances and sessions like the European debut of the new show from ANOHNI, pseudonym for Antony Hegarty, who you know as the singer-songwriter of Antony and the Johnsons. AHOHNI performs along with two of the most relevant producers working today, Oneohtrix Point Never and Hudson Mohawke, collaborators on ANOHNI's 'Hopelessness' (2016), a soundtrack of dance electronica with soul vocals and direct lyrics that addressthe surveillance of individuals, drone wars and ecocide. Also on the bill are Jean-Michel Jarre, pioneer on the worldwide electronica scene, who debuts his new live act during the festival; English musician James Blake with his latest album, 'The Colour of Anything' (2016), who shows off his great skill with bass and the mixing of organic and digital elements; Flume, the most successful Australian producer in recent years makes his Sónar debut with a long-awaited concert full of magnetic bass and pop beauty; English artist Four Tet, the ambassador of current garage-house, with a seven-hour set at the newly done-up SonarCar that's now a space strictly dedicated to dance and clubbing; Richie Hawtin, who's debuting a totally new show at this year's Sónar that will be another step foward in solidifying his relationship with music, art and technology; and other top names such as John Talabot and The Martinez Brothers.
