Experience performances by Jose Gonzalez of his two decade long repertoire with a 21 piece orchestra, The String Theory, at the Kalamazoo State Theatre on March 27th, 2019.

The performances included stirringly original renditions of songs originally found on González’s three celebrated solo albums: 2003’s breakthrough debut “Veneer, 2007’s “In Our Nature,” and 2015’s “Vestiges & Claws.”

Jose Gonzalez is a deep, artful thinker whose singular approach to song writing and sonics sets him worlds apart, José González is in a class by himself. He has a voice. He has a sound. He has a point of view.

Founded in 2007, The String Theory is a Berlin and Gothenburg-based artist collective, think tank, and experimental chamber orchestra that explores the outskirts of contemporary classical music, electro, noise, Neue Musikm and pop by means of workshops, studio recordings, and live performances. In addition their collaboration with González, The String Theory have formed artistic co-operations with a stunning range of musicians and artists, among them include Einstürzende Neubauten, Wildbirds & Peacedrums, El Perro Del Mar, Tocotronic, Dieter Meier (Yello), Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond), Tindersticks, and many others.
