ANNOUNCES ‘RY X WITH STRING ENSEMBLE – LIVE FROM THE VIBIANA CATHEDRAL’
A GLOBAL LIVESTREAM PRESENTED BY DRIIFT ON FEBRUARY 13TH
RY X announces details of ‘RY X with String Ensemble – Live From The Vibiana Cathedral’, a special global livestream which will be presented by Driift on February 13th.
The show was recently recorded within the elegant surroundings of the candlelit hall of the historic Vibiana Cathedral in Los Angeles. The Vibiana, originally the city’s first Archdiocese Catholic cathedral, has been beautifully transformed into a stunning performing arts venue in downtown LA. RY X chose the venue after previously playing an unforgettable show there in 2016.
RY X was accompanied by a string ensemble as they delivered a breathtaking set of reimagined fan favourites including ‘Berlin’, ‘Howling’ and ‘Only’. The result is a one-of-a-kind performance which captures the majesty and invention of RY X’s renowned live experience. It will bring the global RY X fanbase together for a show that’s both intimate and undeniably an event.
RY X commented:
“I’m really excited to share a live stream show that feels really unique and intimate. I want to give something human, visceral and dripping in beauty. And it will be the first time I have ever played with this setup of instruments and sound.
The Cathedral is a very beautiful space, and we have an amazing visual and sonic world to swim in with string sections, dance, analogue synths, guitars, drum machines and thousands of candles. Some of my favourite things. The feeling of getting to connect people around the world for a moment in time in this way feels right, feels special. And I can’t wait to share it.”
