One of my favorite modern composers, Dustin O’Halloran, has just announced a North American tour in support of both Lumiere, which I wrote about here, and a new live album, Vorleben, which was just released on April 21st in North America. (The collection will be available worldwide on May 23rd.) And thankfully the tour is coming South, to Louisville to be exact, so I can finally experience the man’s incredible work in the flesh. Best news all week.

Dates below:

May 27 — Los Angeles, CA — Hollywood Forever Cemetery

May 30 — San Francisco, CA — Rickshaw Stop

June 4 — Portland, OR — The Woods

June 5 — Chicago, IL — Schubas

June 7 — Brooklyn, NY — Littlefield

June 8 — Philadelphia, PA — World Café Live

June 9 — Washington D.C. — Iota

June 10 — Louisville, KY — St. Francis of Assisi

The tour also features video art accompaniment inspired by Lumiere from video artist Christina Vantzou. If it’s anything like the work she did for “Fragile No. 4,” we’re in for a treat:

More on Vorleben soon for MAGNET.
