Electronic pioneers Cybotron, fronted by techno originator Juan Atkins, showcase an electronic, multi-sensory journey, playing seminal classics and debuting new material from the forthcoming album.

In collaboration with visual technologists Pilot, Cybotron’s live show explores the relationship between music and technology. Pioneering a revolutionary digital lighting and laser control system, multiple layers of audio are fed through a bespoke multi-sensory system as Cybotron play seminal tracks from their back catalogue composed some 40 years ago, as well as pieces from their forthcoming album.

Based on the principles of their futuristic and innovative debut album Enter, this bespoke visual generative engine takes the ‘The Cybotron Principle’ - designed to show that a computer can be as good, if not better than a person when collaborating with music to the next level. In compositions such as ‘Techno City’, ‘Clear’ and ‘Cosmic Cars’, this live electronic experiment demonstrates a proven synergy between audio and visual technologies.

This performance will begin promptly at the advertised start time and running time will be confirmed closer to the event.

As a guide, please note that events usually finish by 10.30pm at the latest.

Please note that this performance will include strobe lighting.
