Sasha will make his debut at London’s Barbican on Saturday, May 20th, 2017.
The Welsh dance music veteran will present re-Fracted (live) in association with Late Night Tales, a new, one-off performance featuring live renditions of music from across his back catalogue. The night will be split into two sections: first, Sasha and a small chamber ensemble will perform his 2016 album Scene Delete in its entirety, before offering up contemporary reinterpretations of older material. The music will be performed using synths, drum machines, live instruments and vocalists.
“To be offered the chance to perform my music at this iconic venue was something that I could not turn down,” said Sasha. “I spent quite a long time considering what exactly I could do as a ‘live’ performance as it’s something I have never done before. Luckily there has been a new wave of electronic musicians and composers pushing the boundaries with what can be done in this environment. I have DJ’ed to all kinds of crowds before from intimate 150 people after hours clubs to 200K people at a rave in a field. This is something totally alien and new to me though. It’s an exhilarating, terrifying challenge. I can’t wait.”
Tickets will go on general sale on Friday, October 28th.
