Canadian singer-songwriter and composer Owen Pallett is regarded as one of the most exciting artists operating in the space between pop culture and classical tradition. As a solo artist he creates direct and highly emotional indie pop tracks with complex arrangements and texts influenced by both contemporary queer poetry and post-modern cultural theory. Composer Nico Muhly describes his eclectic songwriting as a ›curatorial gesture‹, equally capable of sampling Laurie Anderson, Wagnerian strings or West African rhythm patterns. In his solo appearances Pallett not only sings but plays violin, piano and keyboards on stage, while looping and modulating individual sequences live. This performance will also include unreleased material from his new album.
