Matthew Dear: Finding Creativity Within The Formula
12:00 - 12:45
De Brakke Grond (G2 Panel Room) | Nes 45, Amsterdam
When it comes to creating music that appeals to a mainstream audience, there are certain rules that have to be obeyed in order to produce a sound and a vibe that fulfils that audience's expectations. But does this mean that everything produced for that audience has to be predictable? While we tend to assume that this is the case, time and again artists coming from the left-field prove that you can bend the rules to suit your artistic needs and still score a home run. In order to prove this, Matthew Dear will demonstrate that you don't have to put your artistic ambitions on hold, and that you can be part of the process of keeping dance music original and interesting amidst an increasingly generic system.
