UNIKO: Stream the full album!

Kronos’ new album UNIKO is out now! The album, a collaboration between Kronos and Finnish accordion/sampler duo Kimmo Pohjonen and Samuli Kosminen, is available from Ondine Records. Download a free track, stream the full album for a limited time, and purchase the album here.

UNIKO features Pohjonen’s electrified and MIDI-fied accordion and Kosminen’s electronic percussion devices which reproduce their samples along with his samples of Kronos’ instruments. These samples, together with live strings and electric accordion plus effects and manipulations create a new, multi-dimensional sound world. (Watch clips of UNIKO on YouTube.)

Australia’s Sydney Festival 2011

Australia’s Sydney Festival has announced the lineup for its 2011 gathering, and we’re excited to take part in it!

Kronos will be joined at the State Theatre by pipa virtuoso Wu Man for the Australian premiere of a program featuring Tan Dun’s Ghost Opera, and A Chinese Home, conceived by David Harrington, Wu Man, and director Chen Shi-Zheng. The latter piece, a staged work with video, was inspired by the deconstruction and rebuilding in the US of a late Qing dynasty dwelling and explores both the rural sensibilities and modern attitudes of China.

On January 14, Kronos returns to the State Theatre for two performances of Philip Glass’s score to the classic Bela Lugosi film Dracula. We’ll be joined by the composer at both the 7:30 PM and midnight performances of the score.

Wu Man also performs a solo concert on January 16 at 5 PM.

For more information, please visit the Sydney Festival’s website.
