6 juillet 2013, Open’er Festival
Jonny y a interprété Electric Counterpoint de Steve Reich, qu’il a aussi enregistré en ensemble dans la foulée pour le label Nonesuch.
L’info a été officialisée sur le site du festival le 11 mai 2013 :
[quote ]Jonny Greenwood, musician and composer best known for his role as a guitarist with the British rock band Radiohead, in which he also plays the synthesizer and is responsible for electronic sounds, will perform a classic work by Steve Reich, “Electric Counterpoint”. Scored for an electric guitar and 14 guitar tracks or a group of guitarists with electric guitars, the work will be performed on Saturday, on the last festival day. Greenwood prepared and recorded all tracks himself and will perform them himself.
Nas returns to Open’er this year with his 11th (!) studio album, “Life Is Good”. Released last July, the record stirred much interest with a song featuring the late Amy Winehouse. Remember the over two-hour performance by Nas and Damian Marley at Open’er 2010, we already know this will be a highlight of the current edition.
Junip will come to Gdynia from Sweden. Fuzzy, psychedelic songs and Gonzalez’s soft voice are its highlights. The follow-up, an eponymous album, was released three weeks ago, and Junip are still doing a great job in exploring folktronica and layers of melancholy in Gonzalez’s singing.
Another exceptional moment at Open’er ’13 is the return of a legend! The first hip-hop phenomenon on the Polish scene Kaliber 44 will appear at Open’er with original members AbraDab, Joka and Dj Feel-X. The concert will be even more outstanding with session musicians and special guests, including Gutek, a great singer and friend of K44.
Also joing the Open’er line-up are: Vavamuffin, Ras Luta, Novika, Oszibarack, Fox, Rebeka, Magnificent Muttley, The &, Peter J. Birch and Drekoty.[/quote]
