Watch Richie Hawtin Debut His Futuristic New Audiovisual Show

Watch Richie Hawtin Explain The Secret Behind His Immersive Live Techno Spectacle

The techno pioneer stunned Coachella with the debut of CLOSE – Spontaneity & Synchronicity.

Over a Coachella weekend that featured the the glitz of Radiohead, Lady Gaga and Kendrick Lamar, it was actually techno heavyweight Richie Hawtin who stole the show. He used the festival as a way to premiere his new audiovisual spectacle, CLOSE – Spontaneity & Synchronicity. It brought together DJing, live performance and real-time image manipulation into one memorable experience. A big part of it involved a network of cameras that gave dancers a 360-degree view into the technique at the heart of the minimal master’s fame. Hawtin will revisit the project again at a homecoming of sorts: Movement Festival in Detroit. In the meantime, you can watch a video and stream the full audio from the Coachella performance below.
