Sónar adds two new surprise performances to the SonarVillage stage at Sónar by Day: a live show by Toronto’s brilliant young musician and composer Owen Pallett; and a dj set by the legendary US producer and remixer Arthur Baker, who will also present his latest documentary, “808 The Movie”, at Sónar+D.
The Prodigal Canadian
Precocious genius and virtuoso violinist Owen Pallett will touch down at Sónar by Day with the echoes of his extraordinary last LP “In Conflict” still resonating. The Canadian will revisit this album, as well as other work from his prolific career -which includes collaborations with Arcade Fire and Beirut, and works for opera and cinema- and will be joined by several musicians on stage. Pallett will combine vocals, keyboards and a violin filtered through all types of pedals and effects.
Electro, disco and snyth pop pioneer
Immediately after the Pallett concert, the same venue will host a set by the legendary ArthurBaker, producer of Afrika Bambaataa’s “Planet Rock”, a pioneering remixer and a key figure in electro and original New York hip-hop, whose CV includes works for New Order, Pet Shop Boys, Al Green and Bob Dylan, among many others. Baker will also present and talk about his new documentary “808 The Movie” at Sónar + D. The film discusses the popular Roland TR-808 drum machine and includes appearances from Damon Albarn, 2manydjs, Tiga, Goldie, François Kevorkian and, of course, Afrika Bambaataa.
