MOTHER OF SOUND (#TheCity)

International & The Ravers

Summary

In the beginning there was light.... and sound...lots of sound.
Our dream is to co-create the mother of sound. Three (3) camps will in collaboration take responsibility of what last year was known as 'The Barn'.

Full description of concept

The idea is to set The Borderland on the burner map by taking this to the next level.

Co creation at its fullest as three camps (The Rabbit Hole, Borderland Tourist Camp, Tim’s Bar Camp) which means over 100 people that together will take responsibility of creating, what in our minds and ambitions will become, the biggest dance floor for The Borderland 2016.

We want to provide a space for workshops, art, parties or any other suggestion.
Planning is being held in the FB group:

We want to be the guiding light in the night. We want to serve as the first, mid and/or last stop for an epic Borderland evening for all borderlings in all ages, tastes and types. As of now there is at least five people in charge for the nightlife experiences, all of which have huge experience in arranging big indoor and outdoor raves with large budgets in different parts of scandinavia.

We are committed and excited to host all out, all night, all week events for the people of the Borderland. The stage will be an “open stage” where anybody who wants to DJ or play her/his music will be also be available. We are thinking of branding it with the concepts of BYOM: Bring Your Own Music and BYOI: Bring Your Own Instrument to keep the context and relation to the borderland principles. Workshops are already planned and specific dj workshops will be held with some reserved dj set slots booked for the "beginners" or less experienced DJ's who take part of the workshops, all with the intention of inviting and including as many as possible to share and co create the venue together with us.

The music schedule will be planned by borderland attendees who do this for a living with the intention to create one long experience each evening where all DJ's & styles are tailored into one long session. Whoever enters The City will never want to leave as you will always be mesmerized and dragged into the constant flow.

The City consist of several different local establishments with reoccurring favourites as “The Rabbit Hole”, “Tim's Bar” and new classics such as “The mushroom forest”, “Tim’s Livingroom”, “The Borderland Tourist Center” and much more. To bind all of these together we will use the barn to be the epicenter of The City (and the whole Borderland): The mother of sound.

Team and plan

Please see FB group, there you can find the people and the scheduele.

Moop plan (matter out of place)

We will collectively take care of the trash and bring it to our recycling station. All surrounding camps have their own MOOP stations and plans and we will together ensure that everybody is well informed about the policies. We are also building a MOOP team right now.

How can other borderlings cocreate with you?

    Details

  • Do you need electricity from the grid? 20 kw continous power, 3-phase 16A connection to the grid

  • Will there be light? Depending on the funding level we are planning on bringing the small, big or huge light show. But the answer is: YES THERE WILL BE LIGHT.

  • Will anything burn? No, nothing under our responsibility or that we are aware of.

  • What is your audio footprint? During special shows there will be noise. We have been putting a lot of thinking into the placement of speakers to not disturb the neighbours.

  • Forces of nature As a blessing from the sky we have received the placement of “The Barn” where we are protected from rain and wind. This is perfect for us as we can store protect our equipment and guests.
