1pm: ‘The DJ residency’ – a discussion on the various forms of residencies and their place in music culture, hosted by Patterns.
‘The DJ residency’, a once simple term routed in the foundations of electronic music. The phrase ‘residency’ has gone on to evolve into a marketable tool, a defining platform for the success of artists’ careers, a word now integral to radio culture and a concept that is still developing, but at its heart it still remains the beating drum of music venues around the world. This panel will discuss how the term has evolved over the years and explore how it exists in the current climate of electronic music culture.

FRIDAY 26TH APRIL 2019
11am: The Universal Power of Sound
“If you want to find the secrets of the Universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”
— NIKOLA TESLA
Following on from last years packed discussion on how music can affect the world around us we are once bringing together forward thinking producers, sound designers and vibrational therapists to answer some of the questions around how frequency, sound and vibration can positively influence areas of our lives, personal evolution and the development ofhuman consciousness.
A panel discussion will present views, facts and evidence on the power of sound as an energetic frequency in our world and throughout the universe. There are many strands of physics that are looking into the effects that different frequencies have on matter and how we can utilise this knowledge for the benefit of humanity.
During the discussion we will bring together thought leaders and experts who have used science, technology and ancient techniques to prove the effects of sound on the world around us and musicians who use different patterns of rhythm and frequency to effect peoples mind, body and emotions.
Goals of the discussion are:
• Debate the science around cymatics and how frequency and vibration effect the physical world
• Discuss the effects on the human mind, body and emotions the different frequency ranges
• Debate the positive and negative stigma attached to music that does not fit into an entertainment category
• Discuss the technology available to assist people’s experience of music in new formats that could benefit their well-being (sensory rooms, audio visual, VR etc)
• Audience Q&A
After the presentation there will be an opportunity to demo sound healing products such as the Vibrasonic Bed from Holistic Audio (http://holisticaudio.org/)
