(La Fura Dels Baus' post-industrial Wagner Ring cycle and Hideaki Takahashi's 'media opera' update the medium for the digital age); Invisible Jukebox: George E. Lewis; Hot Chip (The London quintet hatch a witty hybrid of urban electronic musics, taking in everything from minimal techno to Puerto Rican reggaeton); Sightings (The New York avant power trio explain to Marc Masters how their customary clouds of distortion and overdrive were parted by new producer Andrew WK)."
