Program

José González and The String Theory orchestra embarked on their second collaborative ‎European tour in January 2017 building on the overwhelming success of their first tour in 2011, ‎with sell-out shows across Europe and rave reviews in The Independent, El País, Dagens ‎Nyheter and Hamburger Abendblatt.‎
Since the launch of his third solo album, “Vestiges & Claws” in February 2015, José González ‎has been busy touring and selling out venues in Europe, North and South America, Australia ‎and New Zealand, performing at the Sydney Opera House (twice!), the Walt Disney Concert ‎Hall in Los Angeles (twice!), The Beacon Theatre in New York and The Cirkus in Stockholm.‎
Although “Vestiges & Claws” is to some extent a comeback album, González has certainly not ‎been inactive since his second solo album, "In Our Nature", came out (his 2003 debut album ‎‎“Veneer” has sold over one million copies to date).‎
In addition to making two albums with Junip, undertaking world tours solo and with the band, ‎and touring Europe with The String Theory in 2011, González worked on the soundtrack of ‎The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty, and contributed a brilliant version of “This is how we walk on ‎the moon” to the Red Hot + Arthur Russell charity compilation. His solo version of the Junip ‎song “Far Away” won “Best Song in a Game” at the Spike Video Awards and Rolling Stone ‎magazine listed Junip’s “In Every Direction” as one of the 50 best songs of 2010.‎
The String Theory is an artist collective, think tank and experimental chamber orchestra ‎based in Berlin and Gothenburg. Since 2007 it has been exploring the outskirts of ‎contemporary classical music and original pop by means of workshops, studio recordings and ‎live performances. The String Theory has a participatory approach, investigating new forms of ‎inter-disciplinary collaboration, incorporating the visual arts, developing new performance ‎concepts, and facilitating international artist networking.‎
