Chris Jarrett meets Luca Ciarla
World-class piano and violin. 30 January
The slow-burning success of his 2010 album debut â€śHolkham Dronesâ€ť was something of a dream induction into the world of professional music-making for Norfolkâ€™sÂ Luke Abbott. The electronic opus landed in Mojoâ€™s Electronica Albums of 2010â€™ list, amongst wide-spread critical acclaim. An accompanying live touring schedule has kept Luke and his handcrafted hardware-jams rumbling across the clubs, gigs and festival of Europe throughout the years. Somewhere between the twin poles of Krautrock and techno, Lukeâ€™s hypnotic entrancements seem to connect with something deep, intuiting an urge to dance that is seemingly innate.
Luke will play at Cafe Oto on November 11th and here at the Vortex on the 12th.
