“For many ye­ars I’ve been li­ving bet­ween ur­ban Lon­don and the Ty­ro­lean Alps, and with my new pro­ject ‘En­vi­ron Me’ I wan­ted to create awa­re­ness for our im­me­diate sur­roun­dings. As a mu­si­cian it’s ea­siest to do that with sound, so “I’ve done va­rious ad­ven­tur­ous out­door re­cor­dings in­cor­po­ra­ting our en­vi­ron­ment and in­te­gra­ted them into my com­po­si­ti­ons. My pre­vious pro­jects ‘Pa­ra­sol Peak’ and ‘Cir­ca­dian’ were fully acou­stic and in­cluded many humans.

On the new al­bum ‘En­vi­ron Me’ the sound of our sur­roun­dings fu­ses with the di­gi­tal age and elec­tro­nic mu­sic, with hig­hest app­rai­sal for nature.“

World-re­now­ned hand­pan player and com­po­ser Manu De­lago pres­ents his first au­dio­vi­sual solo pro­gramme ‘En­vi­ron Me’. Af­ter se­ve­ral ye­ars as an in­ter­na­tio­nal tou­ring mu­si­cian with Björk, Olafur Ar­nalds, Ci­ne­ma­tic Or­ches­tra and Anoushka Shan­kar, as well as the multi-award win­ning mu­sic and moun­tain film

‘Pa­ra­sol Peak’ the Grammy-no­mi­na­ted ar­tist trans­forms into a one-man-or­ches­tra.
So­me­where bet­ween Am­bi­ent Elec­tro­nica and Neo­clas­si­cal Mu­sic, Manu Delago’s acou­stic per­cus­sion in­stru­ments fuse with elec­tro­nic beats and the sound of our en­vi­ron­ment. In ad­di­tion, the as­to­nis­hing live vi­su­als bring the sound of wa­ter, fire, ani­mals, lo­co­mo­tion, wind and other sur­roun­dings into the auditorium.
