Irmin Schmidt was one of the founding members of Can, the German band that rerouted rock music. He remained their keyboardist through each of their many regenerations, holding down their rhythmic experiments for over a decade. A composer in his own right, he will perform works from his 18th solo album, 5 Klavierstücke, at hcmf// 2019. Before his performance, Schmidt discusses the seismic shifts that have marked his career.
Produced by hcmf// supported by Goethe-Institut London
This event will finish at approximately 2.40pm
