From the organizer:
Young classical music pioneer, Francesco Tristano will be playing at ATK on Tuesday 26 June. A young musician and composer causing a stir, not only on the club scene, but also in classical concert venues is probably a world-first. Purists from both the classical and techno camps both agree: they don’t know quite what to make of this young, Luxembourg-born musician who refuses to stick to the rules.
He caused a stir by playing techno using sheet music, then riled up the Classical world by mixing his own composition – just like a DJ – into a piece by Frescobaldi.
29-year-old Francesco may well be the only musician in the world combining these two seemingly irreconcilable genres – Classical and Techno. His collaborations with Carl Craig have thrown up four to the floor dance tracks that appeal to both the brain and the feet with more than a passing resemblance to Four Tet’s recent work on Ringer and There is Love in You.
Unquestionably, Francesco Tristano throws up something different, which is why CAMA thinks you’re going to like him.
