ARoS Museum Residency

During the month of August I was selected to be an artist-in-residence for ARoS Museum in Denmark via Flux Factory (my other residency), where I developed the music for my next EP, as well as creating a new live set using the Ableton Push and Ableton 10. I also held two DJ 101 workshops, one for teenage girls and one for adults.Β  Working in a public space, I was able to collaborate with several of the visual artists sharing the space, as well as interact with Danish museum attendees curious about what they were seeing and hearing. Super fun experience! Below are some highlights, and soon you will hear the music I created πŸ™‚

The artists-in-residents I had the luck of sharing this creative space with. I believe there’s at least 7 countries represented here πŸ™‚

Moogfest ALWAYS ON Livestreaming Event

Had the opportunity today to livestream a hardware set out of my living room (complete with a cameo from my chihuahua Rico Suave) for Moogfest’s Always On event.Β Β Always On is a 50-hour livestream with continuous performances from women & non-binary electronic artists and beatmakers. Presented in partnership with Tom Tom Magazine, the livestream highlights the abundance of women and non-binary artists actively creating and performing electronic music and beats around the world – from a home-studio in South Africa, to the Moog Music Inc. Factory in North Carolina. 50 artists performing across 17 countries and 35 cities.

For my set, I was using the Moog Sub Phatty, Werkstatt, Korg Electribe and Arturia Beat Step Pro.

Check out the archived video of the performance here:Β https://www.facebook.com/DJPlayPlay/videos/1641689482559786/
