Underworld’s two and a half decade long journey has cemented their reputation as one of the most influential bands to emerge from the electronic music scene, playing underground techno clubs and warehouses, sound-tracking theatre productions and taking over art galleries, disused shoe shops and Japanese department stores. This year at Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), the duo (consisting of Karl Hyde and Rick Smith) will talk about their career – both as artists and performers – in a conversation with Robin Turner (Heavenly Social/Caught by the River).
Taking place in a festival keynote presentation called “The World of Underworld:
Process and Co-Production“, on Wednesday, 18th October, the conversation will focus on managing creativity and co-production through the world of music and areas far beyond, exploring above all the importance and power of partnership and co-production in the development and presentation of ambitious and exciting projects and events. Simon Taylor, one of Underworld’s closest partners, will provide a visual backdrop to the discussion that will include previously unseen images and footage from the band’s meticulously kept archives. The event is accessible for ADE pass and ADE conference pass holders.
Following the talk, the British electronic duo will play a unique gig for ADE at Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum on Friday, 20th October, in a rare opportunity to see the group’s peerless live show up close as the space is transformed into an intimate club venue.
