Helena Hauff Omnimax Theatre, Telus World of Science, Vancouver BC, September 19
Published Sep 20, 2014Germany's Helena Hauff gave the packed Science World some of the most aggressive tempos of the 14th annual New Forms Festival thus far. Powering through a heavy-hitting selection of dark-wave, electro and acid, Hauff's mixing was relentless and rarely faltered. At times, the deafening bass would leave the crowd little to grab hold of other than a steady stream of contentious rhythms and the occasional peering vox.
It was certainly a test for the open-minded Vancouver audience, who stuck it through over the odd skip of a record and unforgiving pace.
