Jon Hopkins (UK)
North American premiere

Nocturne 3: May 31, 2013, 22:00 - 03:00 ○ Jon Hopkins: 00:20 - 01:30


Striking for its evocations of the silver screen – whether through the emotional narratives his compositions arouse, or the actual soaring soundtracks he produces – cinema is a constant influence on Hopkins’ output. While behind the very real, Monsters soundtrack, which secured him a nomination for an Ivor Novello Award, Insides, his 2008 solo album, unfolds as a succession of staged sequences for the mind’s eye. Some of these scenes are ethereal, others more somber, but all transport us to another, vivid realm. This rich, textured sound has helped Hopkins draw the attention of renowned composers and players such as Brian Eno. His latest projects find him in close collaboration with Scottish singer-songwriter King Creosote, opening another dimension to Hopkins’ craft, here more focused on folk and indie rock. Jon Hopkins became one of the breakout acts of MUTEK 2010 and he left Barcelona festivalgoers just as awestruck at MUTEK.ES in February. He returns to Montreal with a new show in tow, timed with the June release of his latest record on Domino.
