TUSK Festival 2016

October 14-16

WOLFGANG VOIGT

Discographies don’t come much vaster than those of German producer and co-founder of the Kompakt label, Wolfgang Voigt, whose releases under pseudonyms including Gas, Mike Ink and many others run into the hundreds. Since 2008 he’s also been releasing under his given name and has been slowly evolving his Rückverzauberung series of gleaming art-pop ambience and frequently intense and disorientating minimalism. He brings the next stage of the series to TUSK, accompanied by live visuals writ very large across the oversized screen of the Northern Rock Foundation Hall. Voigt explores the fissures in the confluence of techno and hardcore minimalism, an old master producing something thoroughly compelling. Pitchfork said of Rückverzauberung 9: “The textured, nearly studious approach to repetition is unmistakably Voigt; even in a genre where it’s considered a kind of monastic virtue, few artists have done as much with the concept as he has, and this is the latest example of his finding quiet nirvana in the realm of the infinite.”
