The 5 Days Off campaign started this week with a press release announcing the first artists: Madeon, Gui Boratto, Ben Klock, Jessie Ware, Monolake (live) and The Gaslamp Killer. Check out the promo teaser video with music made by Presk (prizewinner of the ‘Grote Prijs van Nederland 2011‘).
I am really excited about the Patterns + Pleasure Festival that’s coming up. It’s great to work on this project together with the people from STEIM and see how much lover there is for music. Check out the website and the trailer below. Patterns + Pleasure Festival, 26, 27 + 28 September at Frascati.
During nightly hours I like to work on my personal project Antenna. A new electronic music night I started this year together with some friends. The first edition in May was a success and the next one will be even better. Because we are invited to organise a new party during the Amsterdam Dance Event 2011. ADE is the leading electronic music conference and the world’s biggest club festival for electronic music. You can find more information about the line up and location here.
This summer I will be working for STEIM as PR manager on the Patterns + Pleasure Festival (Sept 26, 27, 28). STEIM (STudio for Electro-Instrumental Music) is a center for research and development of new musical instruments in the electronic performing arts, located in Amsterdam. STEIM supports artists in residence such as composers and performers, but also multimedia and video artists to develop set-ups which allow for improvisation and performance with individually designed technology.
