Wednesday, May 2nd
with Ricardo Donoso
POLE (aka Stefan Betke) is one of the most important and influential electronic music producers of the last 15 years. His first three albums (“1”, “2”, & “3”), released from 1998 to 2000 and packaged in monochromatic blue, red, and yellow sleeves, are classics of abstract dub techno, marrying fantastically deep bass with crispy crackles and pops. In 2011, after an extended period of relative quiet, Betke released a beautiful pair of new Pole 12”s, “Waldgeschichten” 1 & 2, that marked a return (with subtle variations) to the original Pole formula. A new album is due out in 2012. Amazingly, his performance at the Goethe-Institut will mark his Boston debut!
RICARDO DONOSO is a composer, percussionist, and electronic musician from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, who currently lives in Boston. He holds the drum chair in the avant 12-tone death metal band Ehnahre, is one half of the ever morphing electronic duo Perispirit, and also performs solo electronic music under his own name. In addition, he composes music for film and television. His debut solo LP “Progress Chance” on Digitalis Recordings was released in September 2011 to critical acclaim, displaying his more recent gravitation towards more techno infused, polyrhythmic based electronic music. Ricardo will perform at this year’s Sonar Festival in Barcelona.
