The Kilowatt Hour (Sylvian/Fennesz/Mathieu)


The Kilowatt Hour, a new collaborative trio featuring Stephan Mathieu, David Sylvian and Christian Fennesz, has just announced a set of live dates in Europe this fall. The instrumental trio will develop material this summer followed by a series of dates in Italy”. La prima collaborazione risale ad inizio anno, l’album ‘Wandermüde’ vede infatti insieme David Sylvian e Stephan Mathieu, Mathieu e Fennesz invece si conoscono sin dagli anni ’90, mentre Sylvian negli anni passati aveva già condiviso esperienze artistiche con entrambi i compagni. Lo stesso ex-Japan racconta: “I feel very fortunate to be in the company of two musicians whom I’ve great respect for and whose generosity and companionship have enriched my personal and working life. We’re going to undertake a brief excursion together to see where it might lead. There’s no complacency, no shortcuts being taken. We’re looking to create something unique and exciting for ourselves and a fresh experience for those that attend the performances”.
