LIVE | Live Set by EZRA VONK
Friday, April 23th 17:00-17:30 Hours
Available through Roodkapje’s youtube channel and IGTV
As part of the first collaboration between the Hamburger Communities of Live and Art, titled ‘Agency & Machine’ the role of technology and A.I. in creative processes is central. Questioning how these technologies affect music, we ask: to what extent does technology influence musicians’ work processes and where is the boundary between the organic and electronic in this process?
Producer/Musician Ezra Vonk will play a short live set engaging with these questions.
This Live Set is streamed live on Roodkapje’s youtube channel and IGTV and will be made available afterwards on these channels.
ON EZRA VONK
Ezra Vonk is a DJ/producer from Rotterdam. His own productions are influenced by early grime instrumentals, ambient and club music. In his DJ-sets he combines these influences to create an innovative club atmosphere.
AGENCY & MACHINE Directly inspired by the work and research of HCA-Artist Gill Baldwin, Agency and Machine asks the question what happens when artists, musicians, designers, and other creatives interact with technology, hard- and software, and Artificial Intelligence. Through all events attached to Agency & Machine, Roodkapje aims to challenge you to think further about what is human and what is machine, and who, in the end, is actually in control.
ROODKAPJE’S HAMBURGER COMMUNITY The Hamburger Community programs of Roodkapje provide two yearlong development trajectories for five young, talented artists (Art), and five aspiring event programmers (Live). Throughout the year both the Hamburger Community of Art and Live collectively work towards five interdisciplinary programmes built around the work and research of the individual Hamburger Community artists. During their stay at Roodkapje the artists and residents will receive guidance and support from professionals from their respective fields, and through an in-depth trajectory that is aimed at further developing their professional skills and positions.
SPECIAL THANKS TO Roodkapje’s Hamburger Community of Art was made possible with the kind support of Stichting Bevordering van Volkskracht, Stichting Ondernemersbelangen Rotterdam, Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds, Stichting Elise Mathilde Fonds, Fleur Groenendijk Foundation, and the Gemeente Rotterdam.
