Industrial pioneers Cabaret Voltaire are to make their first liver performance in 20 years. The band will reform for the Berlin Atonal festival on 23rd August 2014.
Now fronted solely by founding member Richard H Kirk the performance will be completed by a line up consisting of machines and multi-screen projections. Although this will make the first Cabaret Voltaire performance since November 1992, it will feature exclusively new material and no nostalgia.
Other highlights will include Steve Reich’s seminal Music for 18 Musicians, the world-premier of Donato Dozzy and Nuel’s collaboration 'Aquaplano', a live show by Tim Hecker, and rare appearances by drum-n-bass hero Source Direct, Minimal Wave favourite In Aeternam Vale, and many more. The festival programme also features installations and seminars as well as a showcase of performances on a specially-constructed 4D Sound system.
Cabaret Voltaire's latest album '#7885 (Electropunk to Technopop 1978 – 1985)' is available now through Mute Records. For more information on the band, please visit their official website. For ticket and travel information for Berlin Atonal, please visit the event website.
