Jon Hopkins, one of the most celebrated electronic musicians of his generation, will make his Royal Albert Hall headline debut in 2021 with his new show, Polarity.
Polarity follows on from his incredibly successful Singularity tour. Jon says it tethers together “the two disparate elements of harsh and fragile in my music”, continuing, “by going between the two, we’ll hopefully create some profound moments of stillness.”
Playing grand piano for parts of the show, he will be joined on stage by a small group of consummate musicians and long-time friends, consisting of acclaimed producer and guitarist Leo Abrahams, violinist and arranger Emma Smith and cellist Laura Moody.
Presenting his live show in a seated venue will present a fascinating challenge for both performer and audience. “Right now I have a set that’s tailored to festivals and to standing crowds and intoxicated people,” he says, “and that’s been amazing, but I would say my deepest nature lies in the stillness, the meditative side of my music”.
