Moderat will take their new live show on tour through August to November, including UK dates at Eastern Electrics Festival, London on August 2nd, and then a return to the UK for dates on October 2nd at Edinburgh Picture House and October 4th at Bristol, Colston Hall. Full tour details below.
The experiments - when two well-established electronic projects Modeselektor and Apparat join forces, you can expect something rather unique. After 4 years of growth, trial, error and deeper exploration, the outcome of the second merger can only be hypothesized as a brilliant new anomaly.
To represent their freedom to morph and mutate, Moderat shares visualized analogies in a series of small Dadaistic experiments. Those experiments will be realized with the help of skilled scientists, specialists and DDB Tribal Berlin and will be publicly displayed at Platoon Kunsthalle in Berlin. Do you know what happens when bacteria from the artist is sampled, compounded, and grown? Expect this and more curious experiments, bridging the waiting time until August 2013, when the new Moderat album "II" is due to be released.
The creative process for 2 stylistically-varying yet harmonious acts is not a science; rather than entering the studio with a master plan, the trio have set sail and combined ingredients with a true pursuit to develop and create something completely by chance.
