Richie Hawtin and friends are set to embark on a college showcase for their CNTRL Campus Tour which showcases technology workshops, lectures, and master classes to students across 8 different campuses with special guests aiding Hawtin along the way.
“I hope that people walk away from the CNTRL tour with a deeper understanding and appreciation for the individual creativity that each artist and performer puts into their shows,” Hawtin continues. “We hope that some of the participants and fans will be inspired to take their next steps at trying their hands at their own creativity.”
The tour will kick-off next month with confirmed guests that include Chris Liebing, Dantiez Saunderson, Dubfire, Ean Golden of DJ Tech Tools, François Kevorkian, Grimes, Marc Houle, Matador, Mateo Murphy, Matrixxman, Matthew Dear and Victor Calderone. Daytime showcases will feature discounted technology marketplaces sponsored by Guitar Center in the US and Moog Audio in Canada, will be paired with nighttime events at nearby venues.
Hawtin and friends will start off at Berklee College Of Music in Boston on April 15th, which includes a party at Middle East Downstairs in Cambridge that same night to put classroom lectures in action. The tour will then touchdown in Philadelphia, New York, Montreal, Toronto, Seattle, San Francisco, and wrapping up in Los Angeles on April 25th.
