Rewire Festival announces 2014 edition with James Holden, Henrik Schwarz & Nik Bärtsch, Colin Stetson and more

Adventurous Dutch event returns for a fourth edition this November.

Rewire Festival has announced the first names for this year’s multi-venue event in The Hague. Leading the bill is British producer and modular synth king James Holden with a live performance of last year’s excellent album The Inheritors.

German producer and DJ Henrik Schwarz will team up with Swiss pianist and composer Nik Bärtsch to perform a new piece exploring live techno and minimalist music on two prepared pianos.

Saxophonist Colin Stetson will show off his idiosyncratic solo style with music from his New History Warfare album trilogy, while Canadian multidisciplinary artist Herman Kolgen is set to present a triptych of spectacular ‘audio kinetic’ performances, including two performances with the Belgian percussion group BL!NDMAN.

Hydras Dream, the duo of Swedish singer-songwriter Anna Von Hausswolff and film composer Matti Bye, will perform music from their Han Christian Andersen inspired album The Little Match Girl, with added visuals, while Rutger Muller’s futuristic chamber quartet Von Nohrfeldt Ensemble and German group Bohren & Der Club Of Gore round off the first wave of acts.

Rewire Festival takes place on November 7-8 at several locations in The Hague. Early bird tickets priced at €35 are now available from the festival’s website.
