DE PLAYER is a polymorhpic production platform in Rotterdam (NL), which has been putting together programs on the cutting edge of performance art, experimental music and the visual arts. We want to emphasise the importance of sound, and the performance and positioning of sound within the visual arts and contemporary experimental music. Theory, design, lifestyle and staging form a key role in this. We don’t adhere to the usual separation which occurs between the disciplines of music and visual art, rather we show their mutual inspirations and influences. DE PLAYER also initiates and produces publications with exclusive vinyl, sound and artwork.
Damage Playground offers a variety of objects, workshops, and products offered by selected designers to support the creative industry in Rotterdam and beyond.
