I’d love to play some music indeed (I can’t edit your wiki tho, could be because I wasn’t signed on already). I don’t have my playlist ready yet but I think I will go from hyperpop to cyberpunk, including more-or-less glitchy music
I can also help for the setup or teardown !
PS : Yeepee, our friend Papyrové Houby is in to come and play her livecoding performance !
Dear DJs we are looking at the space we have for sound and maybe we have been to moderate a bit our propositions, since we decided to move space to have more capacity to host the day sessions. In the new space we need to finish early around 21h30.
This still leaves us enough time to host Papyrové Houby live coding session and small djsets.
We would need some information:
Papyrové How long does the livecoding last.
@Ada_L maybe your set might go after but preferably keep it soft as it will still be early.
@joostvb would it be fine for you to be early playing during dinner
The evening proposition would be such:
18h30 the invening starts slowly
19h00 a small collation is served (soup and bread) @joostvb cool playing to start during dinner
Papyrové Houby follows with live coding @Ada_L can finish the OFFDEM chill out
Then the proposition would be to move to bytenight organised every year at HSBL and those who want to continue playing maybe you can subscribe to their DJ set.
Bytenight is usually a small and very packed event where those whom are not attending official FOSDEM events join afterhours. Expect beer music people, quite easy going and messy.
If my memory is good the space is accessible only via stairs.
We organize with some people around a sound system.
We can offer to sonorise the event, and if it can goes in the planning, offer a little lesson around REW (a free software) to measure performance of the speakers.
Otoh, wouldn’t a party-like event be a low tresh-hold way for newcomers to have
a peek and see what these non-FOSDEM people are up to? Such interested people
could just have a short look and check wether they like the “temperature of the
My € 0,02. Anyway, I can live with any decision on this
I fully agree in principle, however there are thousand of people hanging around FOSDEM and many who become available on saturday around 6pm so out of respect for the people hosting us, and also because we want to preserve our energy and not manage party goers, we should clearly limit the flow of newcomers.
There is a possibility of organising a party in another occupation nearby, at zone neutre, as they do have a basement but that is a whole other endeavor and it might conflict with bytenight. We are thinking on proposing this on sunday evening what do you think?
REW - Room EQ Wizard End User License Agreement says it’s notfree software: you do not have access to the source code, you cannot redistribute the code without prior consent of the author, etc. This EULA is for freeware (gratis software) not for free software (libre software). The fact the author writes “free software” on the homepage does not make it so, and it makes it difficult for other people to understand the difference.

Sure, sounds reasonable, thanks.

On sunday afternoon I have to leave brussels again, so cannot participate
Kermess Panik sound system will sound the DJ corner.
We also will offer a small workshop around sound mesures with REW (room EQ wizard).
We will install the system between 12h and 3h, so the workshop will take place during this time.
Half-fem/half-shell, Michelle Lagrande is a nerd bitch on the dancefloors. She turns up people’s parties with her micro-SD card filled with (trans)feminist bangers, international grooves and glitchy tunes to please her audience while raising fists.
Papyrové Houby will give me her extra infos today, i’ll post them here ASAP
