Alec Empire premieres "Low on Ice" tonight

"Low on Ice" was created in 1994 in a single session in Iceland when, immediately after a festival appearance with his band, Atari Teenage Riot, Alec Empire "drove with buzzing ears to the great outdoors, seeking an exact opposite experience" in which to experiment with his minimal analogue equipment. For the piece's world premiere at Berghain, Alec Empire will appear with visual collaborator Zan Lyons. Editions Mego's Klara Lewis, and Room40 label head Lawrence English both present new lives supporting recent releases as part of the same bill.
