Come join he Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision’s RE:VIVE Initiative and turn the forgotten sounds and images of The Hague into progressive new musical works.
Celebrating The Hague and its centuries old history, The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision’s RE:VIVE initiative presents ‘Sample the City’, an extensive workshop programme that gives 15 young producers exclusive access to unique archival films and recordings, and challenges them to each make a new track by turning the forgotten sounds and images of The Hague into progressive new musical works. Facilitated by our regular collaborators, SAE Institute Amsterdam, the producers are challenged to explore archival material in the form of field recordings and films, and push their technical and creative limits to generate inspired new works, and change the way we hear the past.
The Sample the City workshop is free, but space is limited to 15 participants. Participants will be accepted on an application basis. Deadline for the application is 24 March, 2017, and you will be informed of the decision by 25 March, 2017. To apply, register here.
Please note: to participate, you’ll need to bring a laptop with the music production software of your choice and headphones. A festival ticket is not required for the workshop nor does the workshop include a festival ticket.
