The description of CLOSE suggests that Hawtin will perform as a series of cameras generate real-time abstractions on a screen during the show that'll illuminate his live show in a whole new way.

CLOSE will debut at Coachella in April, and later be taken to Movement Detroit, Vivid LIVE in Sydney, Primavera Sound in Portugal, Creamfields, Pukkelpop, Melt and more.
