For the second edition of the fanfare-initiated series "Parallels of the Equator", the space will be turned into a visual take over, focusing on the link between design and music.
By producing a new vinyl record and a trilogy of accompanying record sleeves, the series investigates the relationship between electronic music and graphic design. We invite producers, artists and music-makers to provide an unreleased piece of music, this new recording will become the basis of the design by 3 different graphic designers, revealing different takes and reflections on the translation of the sound. The outcome will be presented as a 10inch vinyl record with 3 unique risograph printed record sleeves, which are for sale in a limited edition.
For the Amsterdam Dance Event this edition's music is provided by Strange Boutique, who consist of visual artist/designer Nicole Martens and curator Femke Dekker. A long hidden gem that they produced together will finally see the light of day during this project, and will be accompanied throughout the evening by a audiovisual performance by the duo. The record sleeves will be designed by several of Amsterdam's finest designers, all of whom are operating in the field of music and design. (t.b.a.)
The setting will be casual, and we invite you to drop in at any time, or hang out through the day. Additionally there will be a series of talks, with the designers sharing insights and reflections.
For the occasion of ADE cold beers will kindly be provided by our friends of Warsteiner.
