Programme in short
This first edition will feature a performative lecture by Alexandra Duvekot, who is fascinated by the possibility of plant amplification and their capacity to produce actual sound. Following her presentation there will be a DJ set given by her specifically for this evening. The night will move on to another set by DJ's Yon Eta and Poirot.
Yon Eta has a maximalist approach regarding sound while consciously striving to limit the options in the production process of his music. This the Hague-based artist runs the DEVORM imprint, a hybrid community challenging the form of AV releases. In his regular Red Light Radio shows and ‘Bar None presents’ clubevents he explores the past, present and future of club culture and pop music in a story telling manner. In recent years he has released audiovisual works in collaboration with FOAM, EYE Film Institute and Freeform Festival and performed at Sonic Acts festival, the Long Progress Bar festival (UK) and Amsterdam Dance Event. Yon Eta has won major awards at De Grote Prijs van Nederland (2010) and the Berlin Music Video Awards (2013).You can check out his music here.
As a collector and listener from Rotterdam my sets and mixtapes are based on fundamentals collected over the years. Different angles translated into slightly obscure, bumpy and soulful rides through the mind of a man in love with the elements and emotion of music.
This event works in conjunction with Botanikurs: Repotting 101 . If you have the ticket to the workshop you can enjoy the Night Garden for free. So stick around after your repotting workshop!
