Plastikman writes music for French millennium celebrations...

Richie Hawtin has been approached to write two pieces of music for inclusion as part of the French millennium celebrations.

Hawtin aka Plastikman, was asked by the French government’s Department of Culture to write the tracks, which will be aired as part of La Beaute, a project based in Avingnon between April 15 and September 15 of next year.

Hawtin has been asked to “create his own vision of beauty”, and a spokesperson for Hawtin said the tracks would “probably sound quite minimalist”.

Hawtin will be performing at a number of clubs throughout the country at the end of October.

They are

Liverpool Voodoo (October 22) London Lost (23) Leeds Code (24) London Electrocuted (27) Glasgow Slam (29) Belfast Sine (30) Edinburgh Volts (31)
