A.I.D.A. and D.A.W.
Academia Internacional De Arte is a Denver based non-profit offering free and low cost arts, music and video instruction to students of all ages. In 2008 Louis Marr, Brandon Bass and Patrick Palone teamed with A.I.D.A. in order to develop the D.A.W. program. The goal was to develop a world class program teaching the fundamentals of digital music production to local area kids at absolutely no charge. Please join us on Saturday, May 9th and help us raise the needed funds to get the program underway.

Olivier Desmet Om // Amenti // San Francisco, CA
Born in Brussels, Belgium, Olivier Desmet launched his career in the music business working as A&R and promotions manager for the Afterhours Music label in Chicago. During his stay in Chicago, Olivier began producing music under the guidance of respected Chicago artist Mazi (aka Audio Soul Project). An offer to manage the world-renowned Moulton Studios facility for Jay-J and Chris Lum prompted Olivier to move to San Francisco in February 2002. Currently, Olivier lives and works in San Francisco where he runs his label Amenti Music, one of the most respected imprints in the business.
Spirit Catcher 2020 Vision // Freerange // Belgium
THE REAL STORY!!! History has spawned hundreds of genius double acts where two minds and talents collide to form something innovative and artistically challenging. Unfortunately, Spirit Catcher are just a pair of european weirdos. As we all know, exciting and romantic collisions happen in, say, Hollywood or London. Not in Belgium. I mean, does Belgium have C.H.I.P.s? Or Hart to Hart? It doesnt. It has bugger all. No heroes, no drama, no action. Chocolates, beer, and Spirit Catcher.
Pezzner Om // Freerange // Seattle, WA
Up until 2008 Dave Pezzner was virtually unknown to the electronic dance music community, aside from his works in the duo “Jacob London” (Classic Music, Doubledown, U-Freqs). For 16 years he cut his chops with partner Bob Hansen, creating eccentric house and break beat rhythms often crossing the lines between bad-ass, funky and hilarious.
In the winter of 2008, Pezzner took to his own studio to begin work on his first solo output composing songs that are more serious, with an abstract artistic sensibility. Quickly Dave’s catalog began to materialize with a signature sound: Lofty percussive themes with intentions to create hypnotic soundscapes for the body as well as the brain.
It wasn’t long before Pezzner found his first 5 songs scooped up by London-based Freerange Records, covering the first two EP’s of his career, “Other Lover” and the epic three-part masterpiece “Almost Here.” These two EPs garnered him massive support from artists as varied as John Digweed, Laurent Garnier, Peter Kruder, Steve Bug and Ben Watt, setting up Pezzner as a producer on the rise.
He is currently touring in support of his new solo release of all original works "Jouets Fantastiques" on Om records available online and in record stores now!! www.davepezzner.com
