How can I participate
We selected D8E as technical solution for this event. It's a new platform still in development and EN20 will be one of its first events. Some Disorienters are involved in D8E.
Participants anywhere in the world can join at any point during the event's 24 hours. Please be creative with your screen real-estate. We will informally acknowledge the most creative participations with a Disorient Mask when they become available.
In recent years music events have been on a quest to bring ever increasing levels of stimuli to the public. Great creativity and even greater budgets have been successful at pleasing a growing crowd that, for good reasons, started to value experience over ownership of objects.
Embracing new tech and borrowing from the participatory culture, music events continued to crack the code and consistently augment their efficiency at blowing our minds and help attendants reach for the sublime.
Given the world’s new situation, new efforts are put into finding ways to instill the potency of those physical experiences, from which we had to distance ourselves, into virtual ones.
It can be challenging, even for those who claim to have no expectations, to refrain from comparing the current state of stimulus provided by virtual events to the one that we have become accustomed to in the primary physical realm.
Since we cannot look back forever and count the things that we miss we have to explore new ways of making meaningful connections in unfamiliar registers.
Adjustment will take time but there's good news. Now is a great moment to be alive if you’re into DIY and have a little faith in yourself and in humanity. Let's learn together. Join ETERNAL NIGHT and be part of the experiment with us.
Disorient loves you.
