Mercury KX and Decca Publishing join forces at the 2020 SXSW Music
Festival, co-presenting a brand new artist showcase on Thursday
19th March from 7pm-midnight at the Central Presbyterian Church, Austin TX.
The showcase is the first of its kind, presenting a unique and exciting approach to contemporary music which pushes the boundaries between electronic, modern, classical, alternative and ambient music.
Mercury KX and Decca Publishing are fast making their mark as innovative new companies operating within Universal Music
Group. Mercury KX's roster creates genre-defying sound-worlds that bridge electronic, post-classical, cinematic, alternative and ambient genres, while Decca Publishing is the home of original composers working in the fields of post-classical, sync and soundtracks.
The artists who will be performing at the SXSW showcase on 19th March are:
Argentinian multi-instrumentalist Sebastian
Plano, whose latest album Verve
earned him a GRAMMY nomination;
Masked pianist Lambert, whose latest album True is enjoying global streaming success;
25-year-old DJ and producer Anatole, whose distinct signature sound combines orchestral techniques with beat-driven production;
Australian pianist and composer Luke Howard, whose new audio-visual project The Sand That Ate The Sea saw him team up with film director Matthew Thorne;
American composer and producer Alex Somers (also known for his work with Sigur Rós), who recently scored the music to Shia LaBeouf's new film Honey
Australian pianist and composer Sophie
Hutchings, whose compositions display her elegant, ruminative style;
London-based singer, songwriter and producer Kieran Brunt, who established the electronic duo 'Strange Boy' and vocal ensemble 'Shards'.
