Dennis Da Silva /ArtHertz


Read the Dennis Da Silva /ArtHertz Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


I am founder / creative director of multimedia arts organisation, ArtHertz. I work as a curator, a filmmaker, a DJ and more recently remixer and producer of music. I'm currently collaborating on developing a project for TV and producing my own music which I hope to eventually present as an immersive live performance project.


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


My influences have been cross media from the world of art, music and film. Strong imagery has helped inspire sounds and music and vice versa. David Bowie, David Lynch, Claude Debussy, Ennio Morricone, Philip Glass, Jonas Ackerlund, Aphex Twin, Anton Corbijn, Chris Cunningham, Ken Russsell, Peter Greenaway, Salvador Dali, Bill Viola, Air, Daft Punk, Yello. Electronic music has been the greatest inspiration and still is as it makes music making more accessible.


What´s new right now?


I really like what's coming from the label Kaleidoscope, particularly the duo, 'Patten'. Also, I'm looking forward to Young Father's new album, Cocoa Sugar. My tastes are becoming more experimental. I am looking forward to the solo show, 3049 by patten at the Tenderpixel Gallery on the 31st January. I'm glad to see music and art merging in this way and labels like Warp involved particularly because much of the mainstream / commercial music has evolved into something edgeless and meaningless for me. I am planning to resurrect an old club night I started during the height of the electroclash movement – Underpass. We are looking for the right venue and I look forward to announcing details of the new Underpass soon with some of the ArtHertz ethos combined with good cross genre, electro tinged dance music.
