Feel It! De Expo

In 2021, Blabla Sounds and Gigstarter presented the first edition of Feel It! De Expo, an exhibition in which art and music come together. Feel It! De Expo was part of the Arts and Culture program of Amsterdam Dance Event. Five visual artists and two music producers created a microcosm that invited the audience to connect to their surroundings, to art and to each other.

The artworks consisted of tapestries (Marian Genet), a water and light installation (Michiel Kingma), spray-can-mixed-media art (Cheyla Dortland), photography and paint (Lara-Leh Bogaard) and film (Lennox Schmidt). Simone Tijdink and Irwan van Wingerden from Blabla Sounds produced custom-made music for each of the artists. The audience accessed the music through QR codes and headphones.

We had many surprises planned during the evenings, including a co-created live action painting between Cheyla Dortland and the audience and live music. Gigstarter hosted the evenings on Friday and Saturday with musicians from their platform. These evenings were the perfect opportunity for our artists and audience to connect and network amongst each other.
