Synthese is a new Utrecht initiative which brings together adventurous composed works and electronic music. In this first edition they join forces with Gaudeamus for a dance night in the Filmcafé: a brand-new café, nightclub and cinema in the Cartesius Triangle (a neighbourhood on the outskirts of Utrecht.)
The night begins with Slagwerk Den Haag, who will perform sections from the overwhelming Pleïades by Iannis Xenakis as well as the exciting Talk Circus for ensemble and no-input mixer by Gaudeamus Award nominee Kelley Sheehan. Followed by the Berlin-based producer M.E.S.H. who brings his own, surreal sci-fi take on club music in a live set. After which the cream of the crap of the Dutch DJ scene (DJs Oceanic, Jasmín and DJ duo Vierdeux) serves mindbending electronics and danceable alrogithms until late in the night.
