Minimalism with Juan Atkins
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Mighty Detroit techno futurist Juan Atkins leads this innovative, ace-looking event, hosted by Gabriel Prokofiev's Nonclassical label/event crew and Paris team Marathon!. The vibe here is about exploring the musical relationship between contemporary classical and electronic sounds and how the two meet in terms of minimalism, an ethos that both genres have favoured over the years.
Always one to push boundaries and experiment in his compositions, hyper-progressive producer Atkins will play a headline set at the event, joining the dots between his Detroit techno roots with classical composition. Further forward-thinking performances come courtesy of acoustic-electronic experimenters Cabaret Contemporain, percussive collective Abstruckt Ensemble (performing works by lauded minimalist composer Steve Reich), pianist Klavikon (who reimagines electronic music without any traditional production equipment) and Nonclassical founder Gabriel Prokofiev DJing. A maximal, masterful taste of the minimal.
