The National Concert Hall has announced a new performance line-up to celebrate the influential record label Erased Tapes on Saturday, May 20th. Presented as an “Erased Tapes takeover”, the night will feature performances from eight unique artists in various spaces at the NCH from 7pm to 11pm.
The event follows the label’s sold-out 15th anniversary show at London’s Printworks.
The series will be headlined by UK electronic producer Rival Consoles and legendary ensemble Penguin Café, featuring former members of Suede and Gorillaz. The line-up also features a Kiasmos DJ set from Janus Rasmussen and a live performance from Galway-based American songsmith Peter Broderick.
Japanese voice artist Hatis Noit will be returning to the NCH and the first Irish solo show from Berlin-based cellist and long-time Nils Frahm collaborator Anne Müller is also included in the set. In addition, the series will include a modular synth set from Brooklyn composer and Dawn of Midi-drummer Qasim Naqvi, plus a DJ set from the latest Erased Tapes family member, French avant-RnB producer Crayon.
“Founded by sonic architect and explorer Robert Raths aka ghostworker in 2007, Erased Tapes has consistently nurtured genre-defying artists from all around the world without losing its avant-garde ethos," a press release for the event states. "This special event will see Rival Consoles and Penguin Café lead a four-stage celebration of ground-breaking sonic experimentation.”
Tickets for the event are €35 and will be available to purchase online this Wednesday at 10am here.
