Short description of the night, including genres of music to expect:
TWO INCREDIBLE MUSICIANS. TWO VENUES. ONE NIGHT.
Like a 21st Century Beethoven, Nicolas blends classical with ambient electronic music to create sounds never heard before. He is the fastest rising live music artist of 2012 and has been setting the music world on fire with his versatile, virtuoso and often improvised performances than take the audience on a journey from ambient soundscapes, through heartbreakingly beautiful follk melodies to an entirely new form of electronica that appeals to peoples' heads, hearts and feet.
Here is a film of his recent 6 hour improvised performance at MoMA in New York:
His Essential Mix, considered by many to be one of the best ever:
And his website:
The perfect complement to Nico, Apparat began his career creating techno in Berlin, until a few years ago when he made the conscious decision to design soundscapes. Never one to shy away from the beauty of composing and playing on the fly, Apparat records music as experiments - keeping the edits with "mistakes" and working them into his luscious, emotional compositions. His live band toured the world in 2012 to critical acclaim. The co-founder of the Shitkatapult record label (with T.Raumschmiere), he has released music on BPitchControl, Mute, and !K7 amongst others. His DJ sets are as legendary as they are eclectic, and his recent Resident Advisor podcast is a firm favourite of ours...
Some great Apparat links:
The first part of the evening will be held at KITEC's brand new E-MAX Music Zone. Designed specially for live performances, this will provide a suitably great atmosphere for Nicolas Jaar's live set and Apparat's beautifully haunting soundscapes. This event begins early at 7pm and continues until midnight. Expect a visual experience to match the beauty of the sounds perfectly.
Afterwards, we will be holding the afterparty at KEE Club in Central with small&TALL residents and some very special secret guests, tbc.
