The Word Radio x STUK

Sarah Davachi + E Ruscha V + Roméo Poirier

An evening with talks and concerts steeped in balearic exotica and colourful ambient

Tim Koh has to cancel his upcoming shows (including STUK) for medical reasons. His Ariel Pink colleague Scott Gilmore, also had to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances. E Ruscha V will play solo, performing work from his debut album Who Are You.

The Word Radio and STUK team up for a listening evening with talks and concerts steeped in balearic exotica and colourful ambient. Top of the bill is LA-based ambient composer Sarah Davachi, known for her astute combination of synthesizer drones, ethereal vocals and acoustic instruments in renaissance tunings. Her new album Gave in Rest is out on 14th September 2018. Second in line is Californian nostalgia-driven synth specialist E Ruscha V, the son of pop-art icon Ed Ruscha, who released his dreamy debut Who Are You this year. The Word Radio resident and Brussels-based French producer Roméo Poirier will be opening the evening’s proceedings with his now-signature blend of sub-tropical, aquatic lo-fi compositions.

"Like Brian Eno at his solo best, it's the sort of ambience that doesn't flood, that hovers precariously somewhere between the conscious and the unconscious, barely-there and indisputably present.”

- Pitchfork about Sarah Davachi

A collaboration between STUK - House for Dance, Image & Sound and the word radio. The full concert will be recorded and published as podcast on https://theword.radio/
