Dutch Electronic Music & Experimental Venues
The past few weeks have been amazing. I’ve had a chance to see John Tejada, Plaid and Orbital in Amsterdam, Dominik Eulberg around the corner in Nijmegen and Michael Mayer and Aroma Pitch 180 kilometers (about 112 miles) down an autobahn south from the Netherlands in Cologne, Germany (which is beautiful).
I also got to meet José and Ties who we met up with at that amazing Orbital concert (entire concert video, tracklist and downloadable mp3 here). Ties is also part of a really cool band that does live electronics:

The creative opportunities for electronic arts and music fans, supporters and makers is invigorating to see and experience. In May, I am volunteering at the Dutch Electronic Arts Festival to learn more about the European/Dutch electronic music/art culture as well as network with academics, practitioners, educators and dj/musicians. I’ve been wanting to do this for over 10 years now!
