Man of the moment Torn Hawk aka Luke Wyatt is back in Berlin this month for another of his stunning audio visual live shows this time ate Kotti’s center of excellence, West Germany. Berlin based weirdo ripper and L.I.E.S recording artist Jahiliyya Fields will play support.
Torn Hawk is one of the aliases under which Brooklyn based audio-visual artist Luke Wyatt makes music. Wyatt first gained notice for his visual work, self-described “video mulch” for the likes of Autre Ne Veut, Mi Ami, and Steve Summers. His “Video Party” DVDs for the label Peoples Potential Unlimited and his own 40 minute DVD release Sad Stonewash explored his distinct vision across a longer format.
Though he had been making equally arresting sound works for some time, “Tarifa”, his 12″ debut on LIES as Torn Hawk, brought his music to a wider audience. Since then, Wyatt has released an EP as Lossmaker, collaborated with Karen Gwyer, Secret Circuit, and Willie Burns, and released an album of early works under his given name, entitled “Teen Hawk”, which JunoPlus deemed one of the 25 best records of 2013.
The Torn Hawk live attack features an artisinal tilework of distressed denim beats, behind a foreground of gestural guitar emitting everything from Sawzall-shorn sheetmetal riffs to Gottsching-meets-Verlaine watercolor dapplings and washes.
