    SonarComplex - Indoors

Julian Starke, French Waves director, invites you to a unique musical and visual trip with DJs/producers Canblaster and Sam Tiba from Club cheval for an exclusive masterclass! They will share their experience, anecdotes, music and give a live performance to get you into what creating and releasing electronic music means today. The masterclass will also mix screenings of some episodes of the French Waves web series to discover different artists, styles and periods of electronic music!

With an international tour, a documentary film, a web series and an immersive website, French Waves makes you experience the French electronic music with those who created it and create it today. From the 90s with the early scene from Chicago and Detroit, followed by an exploration of rave culture and the French Touch movement, to the latest generation of artists… FRENCH WAVES tells the story of a societal and generational phenomenon. By featuring different perspectives from iconic artists, the project traces electronic music’s path through Generations X, Y, and Z as it is passed down from those who were twenty in the 1990s to today’s digital natives.
