Minus press release Windsor schrieb:Canada’s Richie Hawtin creates music for the XXth Olympic Winter Games
Opening Ceremonies in Torino, Italy
Olympic ceremony producers K2006 invited Richie Hawtin to collaborate
with renowned Italian choreographer, Enzo Cosimi, on a key section of
the XXth Olympics Winter Games Opening Ceremony taking place in Torino
on February 10th. The new composition titled 9:20 was written &
produced by Hawtin and will accompany Cosimi’s provocative choreography
featuring famous Italian dancer Robert Bolle along with dozens of other
dancers, performers and acrobats. Hawtin & Cosimi worked together in
Hawtin’s Berlin studio to fully realize the drama and emotions of
Cosimi's performers, building an evolving soundscape of sounds and
effects to accompany the different movements of Cosimi’s piece.
Ceremony producers have assembled an energetic program planned for the
Opening Ceremonies with a theme originating around the foundation
elements of Rhythm, Passion and Speed. Internationally renown not only
for his music and global DJ performances, but also for his interest in
new creative technologies, Hawtin is in perfect harmony with both the
concept and its global audience.
“Enzo and I are very much interested in pushing boundaries, both as
artists and for our audiences. Working together for the Opening
Ceremonies of the Winter Games delivers the creative endeavor to not
only entertain a huge audience, but to also introduce them to sights
and sounds that they may have never experienced before," says Hawtin
from his studio in Berlin.
Born in England and raised in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, Richie Hawtin
is highly regarded internationally for his recordings both as Richie
Hawtin and his pseudonym as Plastikman while on the world stage as one
of electronic music’s most innovative and in demand performers. His
recent album, DE9 | Transitions boasts a CD mix plus DVD featuring a
5.1 surround mix produced by Hawtin. Today, in between touring the
globe, the Canadian producer spends time between his studios in
Windsor, Canada and Berlin, Germany.
