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

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.
