“Artist collective aims to spread awareness about Electronic / Digital / Analog / Lofi music culture in the Philippines
On January 09, 2016, Metro Manila-based Pixel Collective will be kicking off their 2016 tour: WIRES at Boiler Room Bar, Makati. The series of events planned by the artist collective aims to spread awareness about the electronic music culture and inspire more people, especially students, to express themselves using the art form.
Founded a few years ago, Pixel Collective is a small group of electronic / digital / analog and lofi producers, bands and DJs. The group caters different flavors of the electronic music genre ranging from ambient, trap, hip hop, to post-rock, vaporwave and more. The group is composed of artists like A-Reb-Reg, Digital Ghost, Fictional Character, Goodbye Yesterday Hello Today, IVTH, lust + death, Math vs Audio, MOREOV?R, Murdel, Pure Mind Quiet Heart, s/o, sleepersecond, Tryx, Paincake Patrol, and Zomtendo
In addition to making music, the Collective is collaborating with other artists of different art forms like poetry and visual art. In the upcoming series of gigs, people can expect live musical acts back to back with spoken word poetry from White Wall Poetry and DJ sets before and after the event. Merchandize from all the artists involved will also be sold at the venue.
Pixel Collective also plans to do short workshops in the future for this tour about music production and other arts to encourage more people to make their own thing. Aside from the main kick off, the group will also be doing a beta party at The Bourn, Manila.
The Pixel Collective WIRES event at Boiler Room Bar, Makati is just the first of many events the group is preparing to spread the good word of electronic music. Entrance fee is free as the group intends to have more people to know about their cause.
