Pantha Du Prince: Show Preview

German electronic music producer Hendrik Weber's work as Pantha Du Prince inhabits immense artistic spaces filled with brittle and translucent sounds. Like an audio version of Alexander Calder's mobile sculptures, glockenspiels, bells, triangles and other metallic sounds spin and drift though snowy techno beats on his 2010 Rough Trade release, Black Noise. This carefully shaped music seems more aligned with the precise tones of classical minimalists such as Terry Riley or Philip Glass than with a typical dance-music agenda. The inherent tension allows Weber to add lush strings and voices à la Animal Collective's Noah Lennox (on songs such as "Stick to My Side"), or just lay down a thrusting instrumental club track ("Satellite Sniper"). He also dabbles in glistening ambience, which complements dreamy openers the Sight Below's airy electronic output.
