Wellington singer Louis Baker to play at the Red Bull Music Academy SonarDôme stage at the Sónar Barcelona Festival 2014

The Red Bull Music Academy is proud to mark a decade of collaborating with Barcelona’s Sónar Festival in 2014 with an all-star cast of Academy alumni and affiliates at the SonarDôme stage from June 12-14, 2014. #RBMA 2013 graduate, Wellington soul singer and songwriter Louis Baker has been one of the lucky bunch to be hand-picked to perform on the SonarDôme stage.

“To be invited to Sonar is my total privilege. I can’t wait to catch up with my friends from the Red Bull Music Academy, and to witness world class live electronic music,” says Baker.

Sónar’s ethos of searching out, eclectic future-leaning talent has always jibed perfectly with Red Bull Music Academy’s aesthetic. This year, the Academy will present a lineup of visionary artists hailing from five continents, many of them recent participants at the 15th anniversary edition of the Red Bull Music Academy in NYC. The SonarDôme stage be joined over the course of three sun-soaked days at Plaça d' Espanya by the likes of LA funk legend Dâm-Funk, BBC Radio 1 DJ T. Williams, Young Turks’ emotional center Koreless, rising star Sinjin Hawke, in addition to Louis Baker and fellow 2013 Academy graduates Throwing Snow, Rudi Zygadlo, Suzanne Kraft, LOVE CULT, Emufucka, Trancemicsoul, Leo Aldrey, Astroboyz, Harald Björk, De La Montagne, Jolly Mare and more.

The Red Bull Music Academy has been bringing up-and-coming musicians together with those who paved the way for more than 15 years. Touching down in a new metropolis each year the Academy is a world-travelling series of mu¬sic workshops and festivals where a group of producers, vocal¬ists, DJs and instrumentalists from around the world come together for two weeks’ worth of record¬ing sessions, lectures by musical luminaries and performances. Further, the Academy has extended its curatorial touch to the online radio station, RBMA Radio, and to festival stages and signature events on every continent. The Academy’s upcoming Tokyo edition is set to kick off in October.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
