“Without music, life would be a mistake”
“After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.”
PechaKucha Night – The Musical! was a night of ideas, images and sounds from the people who produce, disperse and study the music in our lives.
In case you missed it, or want to relive the great night, we’ve posted videos of all the presentations as well as the musical performances on our Vimeo account.
Chin Injeti – Songwriter, singer and producer who recently took home his third Grammy for his collaboration on Eminem’s latest album. Chin also closed the night with two awesome songs that brought the crowd to its feet!
Alvaro Prol – Director of Blueprint, Western Canada’s biggest electronic dance music events promoter, bringing in sought after musical talent including Deadmau5, Skrillex and Calvin Harris.
Bob D’Eith – Has been in the music industry for 24 years as an author, lawyer, Juno Award-winning recording artist, studio owner, label and music manager. For the past 12 years, he’s been the executive director of Music BC.
David and Ambrosia Vertesi – David (member of the band Hey Ocean) and Ambrosia (VP of Talent at Hootsuite) created #SingitFwd to raise funds and awareness for the importance of youth music education.
