Red Bull Music Academy presents CLARK (WARP / UK)


Red Bull Music Academy smashes back onto Australia’s electronic events calendar in 2015, bringing out England-via-Germany virtuoso Clark for their first round of club nights in January. As expected from the Academy, the tour preludes an exciting year of RBMA Club Night instalments, showcasing some of the most talented, protean and experimental acts that will visit our shores in 2015.

After releasing his eponymous album via Warp Records in November this year (his seventh), much praised Berlin-based producer Chris Clark is a welcome addition to the RBMA Club Nights program, kicking off a national tour on January 16 in Brisbane, followed by dates in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and wrapping up in Perth on January 25.

With a thirteen-year back catalogue that has seen the constantly reinventing artist travel between hip hop, techno, post-rock, electro and ambient disciplines, Clark returned triumphantly this year with his self-titled, critically acclaimed album release. The Clark LP focuses on the real world element versus the machine, sculpting sounds into a kaleidoscopic journey through a foundation of rich phonic layers, that are at times just as much suited for meditation as for a club setting.

With the likes of Pitchfork describing Clark’s majestic cinematic trip as “a kind of headphone IMAX experience”, it will be exciting to see this ever-morphing musician translate his eclectic, dynamic and often dramatic works of art into a live show setting.

To get in on this Academy adventure, all you have to do is RSVP for free entry and let Clark’s man-versus-machine model bend your brainwaves and push your auditory perception into a new place.
