RICHIE HAWTIN at Avant Gardner (Dec. 8, 10 p.m.). The celebrated Canadian D.J., best known for his minimal Detroit techno, will make his sole stateside appearance this year in Brooklyn. Hawtin’s current live project is called Close, for its mission to make audience members, even in a massive warehouse such as Avant Gardner’s Great Hall, feel like they’re looking over the D.J.’s shoulder. As Hawtin makes music with a variety of synthesizers, drum machines and mixers, six cameras show his hands at work, lifting the veil on his process to onlookers.
