(Warp / UK)
Sound and vision
Chris Clark takes his new live performance to Sonar Stockholm, a format that many of his fans have been waiting years for. "Phosphor" is a techno show for the visual and aural senses, where both elements are perfectly synchronized, and in which the British producer explores the more abrasive and volcanic side to his music. In this sense "Phosphor" relates to "Beast / Feast" a recent collection of his best remixes for artists such as Massive Attack, Depeche Mode, Amon Tobin, Nathan Fake, Kuedo, Aufgang or Battles, among many others. It is a double album that despite containing reinterpretations of others is 100 % Clark, now a Warp stalwart whose music leans towards the labels usual terrain of fractured and multifaceted electronica. Throughout his career the British producer has consistently demonstrated his maverick talent and open-minded approach, brilliantly expressed by his latest studio album, "Iradelphic" (Warp, 2012) full of innovative sounds such as pastoral folktronica, piano compositions or tropical rhythms. Adventurous and highly motivated, Clark recently collaborated on two works by Australian choreographer Melanie Lane and now returns with this new show that is sure to make ones hair stand on end, fans and all connoisseurs of unpredictable techno alike.
