Looking for like minded people to form a small camp with three themes: Synthesizers, Sake, and Sushi. Here’s the concept: People who like producing music with synths, midi instruments, drum machines, etc., hanging out, jamming, teaching others to make music, performing live sets, breaking bread, and sharing a drink. I’ve got a pile of analog and digital instruments that I can bring along. Now, I hear you saying, the Playa dust will destroy your gear. And I say, yes, let it. I don’t mind, I’m not bringing vintage Moogs. If you enjoy midi, dawless, samplers, spinning, or just making beats, I’m looking for you.
I’ve previously camped with BRCU, and we ran classes. This was fun, but we tried to cover too much ground. I’d like to focus on a hobby that I enjoy, the art of music. I’ve also previously camped with a Hungarian theme camp called Palinka Lounge, and we had a fun bar. I’d like to expand on what we were doing there and really commit to the theme. This will be my 7th burn, I think.
So … Sake. I usually bring along enough Sake to cover two nights worth of Sake bar to share with anyone who wants to do tasting. It’s fun. The bar is less about the booze and more about meeting people from around the world. So anyone with a taste for unique drinks, would love to have you contributing on this.
Last year I brought along some Sushi. It wasn’t easy to keep it fresh, but I did manage to have a Sushi bar offering for anyone passing by. This year I am hoping to recruit a Sushi chef friend to come along and help expand on this concept. I’ve figured out a good way to make sticky rice on The Playa, so I think this is possible to at least do vegetarian sushi, and I’ll have to rely on my chef buddy to figure out transport of anything. Clearly there’s a lot of ground to cover in the Sushi realm, and Japanese food, but I’ve got some help on this front, and it’s kind of a unique thing to stumble upon while wandering down 9:15 and I.
So what am I looking for? Interest. Anyone interested? Contributions of time, sacrifice some synths to bring along, and things we might need to pull this together: generator, sound system, a decent shade structure, midi cables, cv cables, batteries, anyone handy enough to make a portable bar that can be torn down and setup easily, some lighting ideas (I’d like to build an LED wall), maybe some ART? Planning a lightweight schedule that might include: a few classes per day, a hands on jam session, maybe some live performances, dj set, and the bar in evening, and then go have fun out on The Playa. Financially not looking for $ per head or anything like that. Just self-sufficient people who can contribute time, skills, love of music, synths, food, drinks, and looking to get back to the roots of participation.
