Richie Hawtin @ Coachella 2017
Over a Coachella weekend that featured the the glitz of Radiohead, Lady Gaga and Kendrick Lamar, it was actually techno heavyweight Richie Hawtin who stole the show. He used the festival as a way to premiere his new audiovisual spectacle, CLOSE – Spontaneity & Synchronicity. It brought together DJing, live performance and real-time image manipulation into one memorable experience. A big part of it involved a network of cameras that gave dancers a 360-degree view into the technique at the heart of the minimal master’s fame.
