EXP___ Second Edition

Following the success of the first round of EXP__, together with BULK and dublab, we proudly launch the second edition of our experimental music exchange and competition from May to October 2021, this time inviting artists from Berlin, Detroit, and Los Angeles to network and showcase their experimental talents in all music genres and music videos as well.

EXP__ strives to offer a positive break and to connect talents of all means, from pro studios to the DIY scene. We look to foster artistic AV experimentations thanks to active group moderation, matchmaking, micro-grants, and workshops. Join the Facebook group to discover new music and new talents, share your pieces, and maybe meet your future collaborators!
Note: if you do not have a page or profile on Facebook, simply write “EXP___” in your track description on Soundcloud so we can enter your piece in the monthly contest, and check Zoom workshop dates via our newsletter.
