About Jeff Mills
DiVISION Live: Jeff Mills & the RTÉ Concert Orchestra perform “Light from the Outside World”
Venue: Bord Gáis Energy Theatre
Support: Hybrasil (Live) presents Spaces
DiVISION, RTÉ 2FM & the RTÉ Concert Orchestra present Jeff Mills performing Light from the Outside World at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre. Hear timeless classics such as “The Bells” reinterpreted and reinvented in the classical format.
Jeff Mills has been a pioneering figure in the development of Techno music since his radio performances as “The Wizard” hit Detroit airwaves in the mid 1980’s. With Mike Banks he founded Underground Resistance and later he established his own Axis imprint. In the process he released a string of Techno classics and launched the career of Robert Hood with the release of his now classic “Minimal Nation” album.
Mills was the first DJ to collaborate with a symphonic orchestra; merging the world of classical with electronic. It began in 2005 with the Montpellier National Orchestra, directed by Alain Altinoglu. Subsequent projects “Where Light Ends” and “Light from the Outside World” have sold out shows from France to Australia. His show with the BBC Symphony Orchestra sold out within 8 hours of going on sale.
Mills is the embodiment of artistic ambition which reaches far beyond the world of DJing and studio production. He has engaged in multimedia collaborations, concept albums and produced “The Exhibitionist” DVD series which offers a behind the curtain view of the DJ art form.
We are extremely excited to offer something truly unique for lovers of classical and electronic music at the world class Bord Gáis Energy Theatre. We are proud to deliver this show with RTÉ 2FM as media partners and with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, known for its eclectic range and imaginative collaborations.
A supporting performance will be delivered by Hybrasil who will introduce a new project titled “Spaces”. This will feature a series of compositions written in artistic spaces around Dublin and performed with analogue machines on the night.
We hope you can join us for what will be a landmark event in the history of Irish electronic music.
