❤︎ DESIGNING CLUB CULTURE: A TALK BY ARI MELENCIANO
In the 1960’s and 70’s, club culture was a social phenomenon that introduced new forms of technologies, sound production styles, experiences and designs. Fascinated by the history, Ari Melenciano turned the archive of Designing Club Culture by the Vitra Design Museum into an experimental course at New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Graduate Program. This talk will be a brief overview of the political and social roots of club culture, from sonic genre progressions to architectural influences, to graphic design visual language practices. We'll explore the relationships between counterculture and multisensorial experiences for community empowerment. This talk will also explain the development of the webVR environment designed for Denver Startup Week participants to experience throughout the duration of the event.

❤︎ DISCO + SOUL + HOUSE + FUNK: A DJ SET BY CRL CRRLL
Carl Carrell, a Denver, Colorado native, is best recognized by his artist moniker CRL CRRLL. His soulful, textured beat-making has landed him gigs with Red Bull Sound Select and Red Bull Music Academy, and he’s played shows alongside the likes of Anderson .Paak, Sango, Washed Out, Broods, Xiavier, Tokimonsta, and Jamie XX, to name a few.
