An immersive live concert in the planetarium by core Arcade-Fire-member Richard Reed Parry.

Richard Reed Parry is a musical boundary-pusher who plays stadiums with his band Arcade Fire and redefines instrumental music with his ensemble Bell Orchestre (which will also be playing at the Elbphilharmonie as part of the Summer Festival). As a solo artist, he released a neo-classical concept album with Deutsche Grammophon in 2014, followed by his solo album "Quiet River of Dust" 2018: Inspired by nature experiences and a Japanese river that in mythology dying children cross on their way to the afterlife, Perry has condensed folk music, Arcade Fire-like instrumental textures and neoclassical arrangements into a hypnotic world of sound.

He expanded the recordings with nature and landscape footage to an immersive concert for the fulldome of the Montreal société des arts technologiques (SAT), which he will now perform live with band for the first time in Europe at the Planetarium Hamburg.

The concert is part of the series THE NEW INFINITY of the Berliner Festspiele/Immersion in co-production with the Planetarium Hamburg and can be combined with other planetarium performances of THE NEW INFINITY.
