“Helado Negro has announced a 2022 world tour in support of his latest LP Far In. After a February set at the Bahidora Festival in Tlaltizapán, Mexico, the tour kicks off in earnest in late April in Atlanta, Georgia, and wraps up in Porto, Portugal, at NOS Primavera Sound.
Helado Negro’s Roberto Carlos Lange has also booked two unique performances ahead of the world tour: One, in conjunction with the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh’s exhibition Marisol and Warhol Take New York, will feature original compositions combined with a selection of Warhol’s films featuring the artist Marisol. The other is an Earth Day (April 22) performance of Lange and Kristi Sword’s Kite Symphony, the culmination of a multidisciplinary exhibition at Ballroom Marfa in Texas, that opens January 22. The project features a newly commissioned film, outdoor composition and installation, and a series of drawings, sculpture, and animation. Lange released a recorded version of the project in 2020.
Far In was released in October; much of it was written in Marfa after Lange and Sword were marooned in the remote West Texas town after the COVID-19 pandemic forced much of the country into lockdown in 2020.” —
