JANNEKE VAN DER PUTTEN is a visual artist, singer, and the curator of the ‘Aloardi Exchange Program 2016’, a three-months project celebrating a mutual cultural exchange between Peru and The Netherlands, inviting Gabriel Castillo, Christian Galarreta (DJ Sajjra) and Frau Diamanda. The program will take place in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague between April and June this year and includes among others an artist-in-residency at WORM and the exhibition ‘Do It With Us’ at Mirta Demare Art gallery in Rotterdam, from 29 May until 26 June.

GABRIEL CASTILLO hacks toy guns and turns them into sound instruments, making glitches and modulations in sound and light. He loves the nature of the digital error; whether audible or visual, and induces basic code editors, de-contextualising electronics, overcoming their logical functionality, and revealing their natural spirit. He is looking for contextual demonstrations, or synesthetic epiphanies.

DJ SAJJRA will play a crossbreed of post-apocalyptic pop, roughed up Andean folk, Peruvian chicha, new/no wave, and all kinds of underground stuff from sixties til now – all from South America! Sounds crazy? Maybe so, but this stuff will get you going one way or another! DJ Sajjra is a project of Christian Galarreta. Today he lives between Peru, France and The Netherlands.

Fundado en el año 1998, Aloardi inicia sus acciones como uno de los primeros sellos y colectivos independientes dedicados a difundir y producir música experimental y electrónica, arte con nuevos medios, intervenciones sonoras, investigaciones acústicas y expresiones culturales autóctonas de Sur y Centro America. ". Apoyamos y generamos colaboraciones entre diferentes individuos, grupos autogestionados e instituciones a nivel local, nacional e internacional. Organizando eventos y exhibiciones transdisciplinarias, compartimos conocimiento sobre recursos (no) tecnológicos, trabajo sostenible e intercambio entre comunidades locales. Ubicado en Lima, desde el 2004 nuestro local funciona como mediateca y sirve para la realización de encuentros, talleres, laboratorios de investigación, programas de residencias, producciones audiovisuales y transmisiones de radio por Internet.

Founded in Peru in 1998, Aloardi started as one of the first labels and independent iniciatives in South and Central America diffusing and producing experimental and electronic music, media art, sound related interventions, alternative acoustic research and autochthonous cultural expressions of its región. We support and generate collaborations between people with self-managed associations and institutions on local, national and international level. We organize events and transdisciplinary exhibitions, initiate actions and share knowledge: the association is engaged in approaches towards (non)technological resources, sustainable work and exchange with local communities. Based in Lima, our space serves since 2004 as venue for meetings, workshops, research laboratories, a residency program, audiovisual productions, internet radio broadcasts and a mediatheque.
