Manu Delago – Environ Me

4 February at 7:00 pm

Manu Delago – Environ Me with Special Guests BlackMantis The Gate, Cardiff Saturday 4th February 2023 Doors 7pm World renowned handpan player and composer Manu Delago presents his first audiovisual solo-programme ‘Environ Me’. After several years as an international touring musician with Björk, Olafur Arnalds, Cinematic Orchestra and Anoushka Shankar, as well as the multi-award-winning music- and mountain-film ‘Parasol Peak’, the Grammy-nominated artist transforms into a one-man-orchestra. Somewhere between Ambient Electronica and Neoclassical Music, Manu Delago’s acoustic percussion instruments are melting with electronic beats and the sound of our environment. In addition, the astonishing live visuals are bringing the sound of water, fire, animals, locomotion, wind and other surroundings into the auditorium. “Since many years I’ve been living between urban London and the Tyrolean Alps, and with my new project ‘Environ Me’ I wanted to create awareness for our immediate surroundings. As a musician it’s easiest to do that with sound, so I’ve done various adventurous outdoor recordings incorporating our environment and integrated them into my compositions. My previous projects ‘Parasol Peak’ and ‘Circadian’ were fully acoustic and included many humans. On the new album ‘Environ Me’ the sound of our surroundings melts with the digital age and electronic music, with highest appraisal for nature. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYLEpsXYkXM
