BY A GUY CALLED GERALD
IN BERLIN

Legendary musician, producer and DJ A Guy Called Gerald was the honorable surprise act at a special PechaKucha event in Berlin. Briefed by his manager about two hours before the event started (when he woke up), Gerald threw together a colorful mix of images which had history for him. Listening to the stories he told, this was a very relaxing and entertaining presentation that ended the event in perfect harmony.

BY DJ SURES
@ VOL 12 ON MAY 28, 2012

In a culture where robots are everywhere -- whether as a toy, in an industrial setting, or as a movie villain -- it's good to have someone like DJ Sures, CEO, roboticist, and the visionary behind EZ-Robot. Watch as he shares his passion for robots, particularly the ones that are easy to control. (in English) More to see: http://www.ez-robot.com/default.aspx

Modern Touch DJing

BY LASSE LAURSEN
@ VOL 101 ON MAR 27, 2013

The availability of touch interfaces for DJing has exponentially increased along with the obiquitous influence of smartphones and tablets. But many of these "modern" interfaces stick to applying dated interaction patterns that are unfitting for this new type of interface. In this presentation, Lasse Laursen talks about where he believes the strength of mixing using touch interfaces lie, along with a sneak peak at his own work-in-progress interface.

@ VOL 20 ON OCT 04, 2013

In this hilarious presentation, Kevin Byrd, shows us some of his ideas that did not work out. One was a photo-sticker art project, another was a new T-shirt design. He also tried his luck as a DJ and a dancer. Watch to see what happened with these and more.

PKN in Zagreb

PechaKucha Night hit Zagreb for the first time earlier this year, with the Croatian city enjoying a packed crowd of 500 for the inaugural event. Organizer Jelena reports on Vol. 1, and introduces Vol. 2. The PechaKucha Zagreb kick-off was a huge success, turning into one of the major cultural events of January in the Croatian capital. Around 500 people showed up at the Student Center Club that night. The event hosted 10 presenters, some of them very much established Croatian artists, and some of them young and yet to be discovered in different creative fields. They were Ivana Popovic, Rafaela Drazic, Platforma 9.81, Numen, Studio UP, Nicole Hewitt, Vili Matula, Mario Kovac, Ivan Kozaric and Simon Bogojevic Narath, and they all created an amazing atmosphere for, as we would say, the exchange of creative juices. The party with DJ Ahmaad, Dj Rea, and ce60 continued until the late hours… Thanks to Ivan Kozaric’s conceptual interactive performance. This was a great intro for the second PKN Zagreb, to be held next week, April 9, at Tvornica Katran (an old tar factory near the city centre). This time there will be eleven presenters: architect Leo Modrcin, graphic designers Dora Budor and Maja Cule, directing-dramaturgy tandem Anica Tomic and Jelena Kovacic, sculptor Ivan Fijolic, fashion designer Silvio Vujicic, bureau of contemporary art praxis Kontejner, architectural NGO group Archisquad, comic drawer and illustrator Goran Sudzuka, product designer Marko Pavlovic, transitive-fiction theatre TRAFIK, and Complaints Choir Zagreb. The PKN party will include DJ Lamiralio, with visuals by ce60 (groodanje); the space is provided by Shockshow industry, the technique sponsor is AVC, and the design is by Budor+Cule (photo: Damir Zizic). So mark your calendars for next week's PKN Zagreb Vol. 2. Below, a look at some of the press received for Vol. 1, as well as a video report. httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LweJHV6khAA

PKN Gothenburg's Piano Break

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dj3d9_EeFPk At its latest PechaKucha Night -- Vol. 28, held a few days ago -- Gothenburg invited pianist Bruno Bran to play at the event during the breaks, instead of a DJ. As organizer Jesper Larsson says, "I must say it was great for the atmosphere and perhaps something to spread and recommend to other PKN organizers." The video gives you a taste of Bran's playing, and we love seeing the reflection of our PechaKucha city loop on the piano.

Photos by A Guy Called Gerald

The nomadic life of a musician is one of countless stories. The legendary English musician/DJ/producer presenting in this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Berlin) is none other than A Guy Called Gerald. He discusses 20 photographs that are particularly inspiring or reminiscent for him; these include hypnoitising images of fire, shots of sunrises and sunsets from all over the world, analogue sound machines, times of strife and times of dreams, as well as an old photo from the 1960s of his mother. Hear him tell a new story with each photo introduced -- in a stream of consciousness fashion.

VJ DJ Communication

VJs and DJs don't talk. Or at least, they don't communicate nearly enough. Lasse Laursen works hard for the money as a VJ/DJ relationship counselor -- well, kind of -- he develops audio interfaces for VJs and DJs in hopes to dramatically increase merriment levels for the crowd. In today's Presentation of the Day, "VJ DJ Communication" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 105, Lasse reviews his previous presentation on touch interfaces, and highlights his amazing research meant to benefit future partygoers the world over.
