Synergy Concerts presents

Jon Hopkins

8:00pm, Wednesday 04 March 2020

 

Regarded by The New Yorker as “One of the most celebrated electronic musicians of his generation”, over the course of five solo albums - as well as collaborations with Brian Eno, David Lynch and King Creosote, and film scores for The Lovely Bones and Monsters, Hopkins has forged a reputation for music that marries the dancefloor to the devotional, and for live performances that are visceral, generous, charged with a rapt, sensuous beauty.

Polarity is “not a retrospective exactly” but certainly “a marker point of the end of a phase.” For twenty years now he has been exploring the relationship between stillness and noise - noticing the recurrence of these “juxtapositions of jagged loud sounds and very quiet stuff.” 

Playing grand piano for parts of the show, he will be joined on stage by a small group of consummate musicians and long-time friends, consisting of acclaimed producer and guitarist Leo Abrahams, violinist and arranger Emma Smith and cellist Laura Moody.

Presenting his live show in seated venues will present a fascinating challenge for both performer and audience. “Right now I have a set that’s tailored to festivals and to standing crowds and intoxicated people,” he says, “and that’s been amazing, but I would say my deepest nature lies in the stillness, the meditative side of my music.”
