  • Summary

    The Amazing Borderland Quaryoke is back!! This time only louder, more colourful with more songs aaaaand with a placement so people are able to get some sleep when the Borderlings hit the high C during Total Eclipse of The Heart!

    Full description of the concept

    We find a suitable spot somewhere at Borderland at set up our karaoke-system. We project the lyrics on some nice background and the quaryoke is ready to go. Borderlings are going to come as soon as they hear that the quaryoke is on!

    We have a lot of the gear already, so we are almost ready to go. However, this year we need help funding a PA-system in order to realize the dream.

    Previous years we have been dependent on borrowing other people's sound equipment which has always been troublesome and not ideal seeing that deals and appointments can be fluid at Borderland. And the systems that we could borrow were typically not too great. Therefore we need a decent system, and we need to be in charge of it ourselves.
    We know that sounds equipment is a topic for debate but this dream can't work out if we don't have our own system - we tried, it didn't work. We will make sure, that the PA is used for many other burner events and keeps benefitting the community.

    We set up some nice lights for getting into the right mood and to make the atmosphere around the quaryoke nice.
    We set up a little shot-bar (not in the budget) next to the quaryoke so Borderlings can get ready to go Gaga and Mercury on our asses.... if you know what I am saying.

    If this still sounds too weird for you to fully grasp, well, then have a listen to our recording from 2015:

    (set the volume to 1.000).

    We already have:
    Computer with karaoke-songs
    Projector
    2 Microphones
    Discobowl
    2 moving heads (lamps)

    About the group/Artist

    Jonas & John have been setting up the quaryoke at Borderland since 2014. It all started at the Copenhagen Grotesque Burlesque where we put up the karaoke system at the toilet and had a fantastic karaoke party inside the big party .... inside the toilet. We quickly took it to the Borderland and have had some fantastic karaoke parties that only had to end because the sun came up and the lyrics from the projector were unreadable. We badly want to create more of those evenings!

    How can other burners co-create with you?

    Come sing!

    What is this?

    Congratulations! You've stumbled upon something special. The Dreams Platform is a place where participants share their dreams.

      Details

    • Do you need electricity from the grid? How much in Watts? 800 Watt (PA = 400 W) (Computer, lights = app. 400 Watt probably less)

    • Will there be light? We will create a nice atmosphere with various colourful lights.

    • What is your audio footprint? Yes we will. Seeing that we are applying for a system that can play louder than what we are used to, and seeing that we took away some Borderlings sleep back in 2016 and 2015 we intend to place the setup somewhere clever to make it bother people the least.
