About

ADSR – Short Attack, abrupt Decay, and a non-lasting Sustain to leave us with a Release into the VOID – a vacuum that opens space for remixing the previous and accenting the new. The closing party of this year’s Digital Art Weeks festival embraces the VOID as an infinite space that makes itself available to be populated by the digital realm of sound and light. The internationally acclaimed artists DJ Nord, DYZ, KNIVES, 3pin and robot_mixeur will roll out the red carpet for you to enter this space to enjoy a night of ambient, minimal, trippy and eclectic techno, augmented with live visuals, aiming at re-filling the VOID through a reinterpretation of attack, decay, sustain and release.
