CLOSE is an immersive audio-visual experience that invites participants into the booth with Hawtin, while simultaneously deconstructing the concept of the DJ booth in the first place. It is a minimal, stripped-down performance that maximizes what is most important, by turning the often-distracting visual component of an electronic music show into a spotlight for the artist’s craft.
Watch the video of Richie explaining his CLOSE show down below. “It feels like the audience is sitting on my shoulder,” Hawtin says.
Richie will stop by Avant Gardner in New York with his CLOSE show on December 8, and Belgian talent Amelie Lens is joining him.
Tickets are available here.
I’ve always been very interested in how far you can push DJing, and my new show CLOSE is an audio-visual experience that allows me to experiment much more than my regular DJ shows and hopefully by the set-up and the visuals, it actually allows you to get closer to what is actually happening…Upcoming CLOSE Dates:14/07 CLOSE – Spontaneity & Synchronicity at Mad Cool Festival27/07 CLOSE – Spontaneity & Synchronicity at Audioriver Festival18/08 CLOSE – Spontaneity & Synchronicity at Lowlands Festival10/10 Richie Hawtin – CLOSE – Spontaneity & Synchronicity à L'Olympia 11/10 CLOSE – Spontaneity & Synchronicity at O2 Academy, Glasgow12/10 CLOSE – Spontaneity & Synchronicity at Roundhouse, London#RichieHawtin #CLOSElive #PLAYdifferently
