Untypical, organizational initiatives will be tested. Gathering moments will allow connection for further creation . The rhizom will sprout.

The collective is convinced that no one should renounce culture and entertainment due to financial limitations. The prix libre concept encourages people to reflect on which components are relevant to them when it comes to putting a price on something. For example, the appreciation of the work done for the festival, the support of the project, the expenses involved, or the idea of making culture and entertainment accessible for all. It also enables fair and equal pricing, adjusted to one’s individual resources, and empowers all participants. The prix libre allows the organizers to create a festival without being profitable, without imposing pricing views on participants, and to distance themselves from the value society imposes on human labour.

Audio social communities and affect engineering

In my research on transmedia festivals, I approach different urban scenes that come together through electronic music and experimental sound practices as audio social communities. I want to outline how affect is linked to contemporary community building, forms of communality, and what role affect has in sound and the sonic experience within certain genres and events. The aim of communities led by sonic affect is, for example, to combat fear as a postmodern phenomenon in capitalism, through rhythm, resonance, speed, vibrations, volume, or atmospheres.
