Jon Hopkins, Leo Abrahams, Emma Smith, Laura Moody
After his successful Singularity tour 2018, with worldwide sold-out solo live shows, festival appearances and DJ dates, Jon Hopkins is happy to go on tour again. The British electronic musician is back on the road in Germany with his new program "Polarity" in September and will of course also make a stop in the capital.
His electro-house sound ranges from techno to choral melodies and solo piano pieces to psychedelic sounds. Polarity is meant to combine "the two disparate elements of the hard and the fragile in my music," Hopkins says. "And by moving between those two elements, hopefully we will create some profound moments of stillness.
Once again, he's joined by Leo Abrahams (electric guitar), Emma Smith (violin), Laura Moody (cello). Hopkins himself will also be heard on the grand piano and will be accompanied by his friends, who make excellent music, his sensual rapturous live performances.
The New Yorker called Hopkins "one of the most celebrated electronic musicians of his generation."
On five solo albums and also in collaborations with Brian Eno, David Lynch and King Creosote, as well as on the film music for "The Lovely Bones" and "Monsters", Jon Hopkins showed his great musical talent.
