richie hawtin teases fans with updated plastikman website

the don of minimal has updated his plastikman website with details of the forthcoming world tour, accompanied by some reverbing, ping-ponging sound effects and extra eye liner. what do we know so far? the new show will be an audio-visual, "highly concentrated one-hour experience" that aims to take a modern interpretation of the plastikman catalog, which stretches back almost 2 decades. the last plastikman live show, from 2004's mutek festival, received mixed reviews as richie tried to control the entire audio-visual experience - this new tour seems to be an updated attempt at a similar immersion into "visual, audio, and interactivity". one thing not made explicit is the creation of new plastikman material...

the show debuts march 27, at london's timewarp festival. stay tuned!
