PROJECT · · | | |

On Saturday 2nd September 2017 The Project 23 Collective will hold our first major event – Chapter One.

Over 4 Months in the making this will be like nothing else you have experienced in Bali before. As many of you will be aware 3 weeks away from the launch event we were forced to make a venue change to ALLCAPS Street Art Gallery and Park which is an amazing venue. This means the event will now take place indoors and outdoors in a space surrounded by warehouses covered in incredible murals and the perfect canvas to video map onto.

This event will showcase some of the finest electronic artists performing live from across Indonesia as well as 5 DJ’s through the night including the Project ··||| residents roster, all of whom are well established and known but for this project are taking on aliases to ensure the focus is on the music and not them.

There will also be 4 multimedia art installations from some of the scene’s most established and respected names that will involve Video Mapping and some very innovative installations.

You will witness many forms of electronic music from electronic funk to experimental, through to house and techno, and plenty in between, picking up pace throughout the evening.

The event will now start at 4pm with live acts commencing from 6pm. With our new venue, the event is going to become a mini urban festival and we will have bars offering very reasonably priced drinks, a food court, and plenty of entertainment to ensure you have a game changing experience through the night. Our aim is to change people’s perceptions of Indonesian contemporary music and art.

There are well over 40 contributors taking part, 15 different acts, in a venue we are transforming from an empty space into something very special for one night only.

There will be food on the night from Babi Bagus, Papitos and Dogfang in the food court with more to be confirmed as well as the legendary 40 Thieves running the bars. There will be also be sponsors areas, and a retail area courtesy of Tantrà.

Massive thanks of course to all our sponsors especially our partner Marlboro, as well as Redbull, Jose Cuevo, Heineken, 40 Thieves, for making this all possible.

CHAPTER-ONE
FULL LINE UP

JONATHAN KUSUMA

This is a huge booking for us at Project ··|||. Singapore based Jonathan Kusuma or OJON as he is also known, is a genuine Indonesian success story and great role model for any aspiring Indonesian artists and DJ’s. With releases on some of Europe’s most credible labels including ‘I’m A Cliché’ from Paris and ‘Cocktail D’Amour’ out of Berlin he is testament to the Project ··||| belief that you don’t have to be from Europe or America to be a genuine and respected artist on the house and techno global scene.

 

Couple this with the fact that he has been DJ’ing all across Europe and Asia for many years, is totally supportive of the project as well as being one of the co founders of the critically acclaimed Space Recs label borne out of Jakarta, you can understand why his set is being so highly anticipated by so many.

KIMOKAL

KimoKal is duo, KIMO RIZKY and KALLULA HARSYNTA ESTERLITA and together they are one of the most commercially succesful and credible electronic acts to have come out of Indonesia.

Boldly staking out from a different depth of Indonesia’s music scene they transcend any notions of genre, drawing from psychedelic, nu-wave, dub, electronic, nu-disco, ballad and pop but refusing to be attributed to one particular genre.

Normally booked to play at huge festivals like SXSW most recently, to have them perform in front of just 500 people will be a very intimate and special affair esepcially considering for this set they are bringing their full band.

ASAM

From the crtically acclaimed DEAD Records label from Jakarta these guys are a bonafide, live techno act, whose unique take on techno made them an obvious choice for a warehouse style event such as ours. ASAM will definitely make their mark on the night… of that much we are certain.

WUKIR SURYADI feat. MATRIX PROJECT COLLAPSE

WUKIR is of course more commonly known as one half of the legendary outfit SENYAWA who recently stole the show at Potato Head’s VICE Indonesia event, and he is set to perform alongside another genuine underground legend of longstanding acclaim MATRIX PROJECT COLLAPSE which is JONAS SESTAKRESNA and his protegé BIMO, for this newly formed side project performing a mind bending experimental and visual set.

ZAT KIMIA (debut Electronic Performance)

Zat Kimia are one of the best indie outfits to be found anywhere in Indonesia. These guys are often compared to Radiohead with their sound, and incredible ability to write and perform such powerful music and when they agreed to perform their first ever electronic set at Project ··||| we were genuinely honoured.

PARIWISATAN

A local outfit borne from the creative hotspot TUCK & TRAP in Kerobokan the guys have been longtime supporters of the islands underground scene using their coffee shop as a venue for noise performances, cult film screenings, a record store BADUNG DIGS and workshops. Their set will encompass what goes on in their magical little venue with electronic psychadelic funk, fused with some leftfield soft noise.

PROJECT · · | | | DJ’s

Dj’s from the Project ··III roster set to play include NOZA, KING HORROR & CNTROL. Despite the fact our residents are very well known and you have probably seen at least one or two of them before when not using their project aliases, these guys have been working for weeks to ensure you will get something very different on the night. The residents will also be accompanied by members of PLANET BAMBOO who are a collective of the most accomplished percussionists in Bali.

VISUAL ARTISTS
ON THE NIGHT

GENTUR SURIA

Jns is another of the hugely respected underground visual artists both wihin Indonesia and beyond. Another supporter of the noise scene his bamboo structures and video mapping performances have rightfully made him one of the most well known artists across the whole country and his protege Bimo is now fast catching him up.

KOKOK SAJA

Another of the hugely respected old guard his portfolio is  testament to the dexterity of the man as an artist. Often associated with Jns he is another Yogjakartan artist who we are supremely grateful is taking part and is guaranteed to do something to blow your mind.
