Jamie Stewart is the lead songwriter and noisemaker for the band Xiu Xiu, with his own practice as a solo musician, artist and author also developing in parallel with the band over recent years. This solo tour, Jamie’s first live actions in EU for three years, sees him perform back-catalogue Xiu Xiu material in a stark, stripped-down guitar and voice idiom.
Hyunhye (Angela) Seo is an artist exploring experimental composition and expression of sound and its manifestations within space and body. Recently, her solo album, Strands, explores abstract soundscapes built with processed percussion, improvisational piano, and dark ambient material.
Jamie Stewart is driven by art. In the past two years, in addition to regular albums (most recently »Forget«), he recorded and toured with an impressive Twin Peaks soundtrack tribute with the schizoid pop band XiuXiu, initiated the HEXA project with the drone/ambient artist Lawrence English and created a theater piece with the performer and director Susanne Sachse. In 2018, he wants to calm down a bit, but a break is not really an option for him – so he is going to play a few selected solo concerts with reduced versions of XiuXiu songs; just Steward’s voice and an electric guitar.
