Blanck Mass, the solo project of young British musician Benjamin John Power, has just been confirmed as the main supporting act for Sigur Rós on its extensive European and UK tour commencing in mid-February 2013 and ending with three already sold-out shows at London’s Brixton Academy on March 7th, 8th and 9th. Full details of the tour are listed below.
Blanck Mass will play his final UK show of 2012 at XOYO in London on Friday 19th October. The set will feature a live audio-visual accompaniment from film director and designer Alex Turvey. The night will also include a special guest A/V show support slot from artist and electronic soundscape guru, Russell Haswell. DJ duties before and between the live acts will be handled by PATTEN.
Blanck Mass has steadily built up a reputation as a real innovator. Following the release of the eponymous debut album on Rock Action Records in 2011, Blanck Mass' music featured in the 2012 London Olympics Opening Ceremony multiple times and also as part of a joint recording with The London Symphony Orchestra on the accompanying ‘Isles Of Wonder’ compilation album. Then there was a stunning 12" single release ‘White Math / Polymorph’ on Oneohtrix Point Never's Software/Mexican Summer label in the Summer of 2012.
Blanck Mass is currently working on a second studio album. Watch this space for details.
