Hawkchild DIY: Evian Christ
Evian Christ (b. Joshua Leary) is an Ellesmere Port-based musician, producer and music programmer signed to Warp. Initially finding recognition for his production contributions to Billboard-topping albums by Kanye West and Travis Scott, and subsequently as the founder of the enduringly influential TranceParty event series, Christ’s recent years have seen him lead an idiosyncratic range of projects that enquire into the legacy of Trance in contemporary cultural life. Revanchist (2023), Christ’s imminently released debut album, explores the genre’s latent potential to evoke, beyond Euphoria, the fullest feeling of the Sublime
Strobe Warning: in order to evoke, beyond Euphoria, the fullest feeling of the Sublime, Evian Christ’s performance — as per the artists unconditional technical specification — will be supported by 12kw of unrelenting xenon strobe lighting (we have had to hire an industrial-grade power generator to accomodate for this). As such, this show may not be safe for people with photosensitive epilepsy.
