Richard D. James is quite simply one of the most charismatic and influential artists in music in recent decades. The godfather of a thousand and one scenes, the pioneer of a thousand and one sounds, his approach to electronica is as personal as it is heterodox, combining acid, electro, ambient, broken rhythms and an unmistakable sense of humour. For his touchdown at SonarClub, the legend from Cornwall will have an impressive audiovisual show featuring lasers and visual, with a mixture of live takes of the audience with thermographic images distorted by Aphex himself. A touch of class, with a review of classics and with a bit of luck ... a chance to hear his new compositions for the first time.
