Rewatch: Experiencing music together

Thursday 28 January 2021 21:30-23:00

To close off the Night of Ideas, we are offering a musical event designed to bring together a community that unfortunately no longer has access to nightly events with the closure of music clubs. The event will take place in the form of a live stream, with DJs accompanied by a visual mixing performance. Through the music, the artists aim to recreate a sense of closeness.

About Violeta West: Parisian multidisciplinary artist Violeta West dreams up of surrealist colorful landscapes, askew shapes and bodies. This vision is reflected across her artworks and music productions. Her works include several collaborations with the METEO crew, notably her contribution to the “METEO DIC” project (DIC is a cartoon production company); a remix of the opening theme of “Les Minipouss”, an animated series from the 80s, in which she reinterpreted the main melody with a different synthesizer, added percussive stabs, and layered on choir vocals, renewing it into a heartening danceable song. Original productions include “Tourne-Tête”, a drum-heavy club tool for getting crowds heated up. Her DJs sets delve into an ocean of dancefloor-ready catalogues, ranging from UK Funky to footwork, going through house, techno, grime, breakbeat, and jungle. Violeta West has played in Geneva, Switzerland, and all corners of France including Nantes, Rennes, Paris, Bordeaux, and is now ready to take over the rest of the world.
