Plastikman is arguably one of the only live shows around where all aspects of the performance - music, lighting, audio, visuals and real-time audience interaction via the SYNK App - are controlled by a single on-stage performer. The Plastikman live experience has been developed by the electronic visionary Richie Hawtin. Derivative & his production team over the past ten years.
The updates of the show have once again been created within Hawtin's fully-collaborative lighting, visual and interactive team: Ali Demirel & Jarrett Smith of Derivative (TouchDesigner
visuals); Matthias Vollrath (lighting integrations); Jeremy Jacobs (JPLS) & Johannes Kramer(sonic upgrades); and Robert Hexler & Bryan McDade (interactivity).
As with all previous dates, Plastikman Live will be fully interactive for any fans with the free SYNK iPhone application, which itself has been relaunched with new features including a live chat, live
behind-the-curtain camera feed and more interactive elements, making the show one of the only genuinely interactive concert experiences in the world today.
Richie Hawtin aka Plastikman states: "I'm incredibly excited to finally take Plastikman on its first standalone tour. These dates will represent the last opportunities for fans to catch Plastikman
Live in its current form: the 1.5 version of the show we've spent nearly a year of fine-tuning. After that, Plastikman will be returning to the shadows to begin work on a brand new 2.0 concept. The fall tour will be full of surprises, and the performance will continue to be spontaneous and unique
for every show, the way I believe live music should be performed in 2011."
