The RAYMI events are spaces of creation, presentation and amusement, enabling the exchange of experiences with the community of Rotterdam.

Wilder Agreda’s prolific work and characteristic musical ethos makes him one of the most interesting figures in Peruvian independent music and sound art. He has been active since 1995 with influential bands like Catarsis, Avalonia and Fractal, who were part of a Peruvian psychedelic post-rock scene known as ‘Crisálida Sónica’. Wilder founded Super Space Records in and his discography consists of more than 60 releases. He also produces the radio show ‘Peru Metamusica’, dedicated to avant-garde rock and electronic music, which is transmitted by the FM Radio Comas, Lima. In the alternative South american network he is also known as a music journalist and philosopher, publishing articles with his blog ‘Peru Avantgarde’ (since 2004) and other platforms. Gonzales Agreda graduated in Communication at the University of Lima (2010) and specialized in Philosophy at the University Ruiz de Montoya (2005).

As artist-in-residence at the Aloardi Exchange Programme 2017 in October and November this year, Gonzales Agreda will perform at the Aloardi Festival ‘Peruvian New Music & Arts’ at WORM on the 28th of October, and produce a radio play to be broadcasted at the Dutch national Concertzender, a commission by Studio Klangendum.

Despina is a Rotterdam based photographer, born in Thessaloniki. She graduated from the Fine Arts & Art Sciences department of the University of Ioannina, and holds an MA in Photographic studies from the Media, Arts and Design department of Westminster University, London.

For this Aloardi event, Despina will talk about her street art project ‘Metropolitan iconographies (urban saints of Charlois)’, a collaboration with the architect Anastasia Tsaparoglou. In this project, inhabitants of the working class suburbs of Rotterdam are depicted as saints or/and pop icons. Everyday people who are cornerstones of the strong social cohesion in the neighbourhood, with a significant contribution to the area. Residents are photographed and their photos used in digital collages combining visual elements shared in pop, street and byzantine art like dynamic colors, two dimensional background, abstraction and symbols. The portraits of the saints were placed on the streets of Charlois, where everyone passing by can interact with them on a daily basis.

galerie Gallery started in 2009 as a place to offer fellow artists an opportunity to develop new work in the domestic and welcoming location of an unused room in Jan Huijben’s Rotterdam South apartment. galerie Gallery’s low profile allows for artists to experiment with new media and new ways of presenting their work.

Over the years they’ve been host to a range of international artists who have all used and filled the small space in their own unique ways, sometimes expanding the exhibition space to the rest of the apartment, the beautiful communal back garden, or the busy Dordtselaan.

Janneke van der Putten is a visual artist and vocalist based in Rotterdam. Her practice involves experiences of listening, performances, sound and video, documentations in image/text/textile, workshops, music projects, and creating platforms for cultural exchange. Her voice is her main tool, guiding her through physical and sonic explorations in different landscapes. Engaging with specific sites and local contexts, and through her personal experiences, she investigates (human) responses to her surroundings, and their relation to natural phenomena and transitions, such as the sunrise.

She graduated from TXT (Textile), Gerrit Rietveld Academy and completed her MMus in Artistic Research, Royal Academy of Art & Royal Conservatoire. Van der Putten trained in classical North-Indian Dhrupad and is autodidact in various extended vocal techniques. Since 2015 she is part of collective Aloardi and she is currently producing and co-curating the second edition of the Aloardi Exchange Programme. The project ‘Invisible Architecture’ with Chrs Galarreta, for which they published a vinyl in 2014, has been presented at amongst others exhibition Make the Audition: Meetings Between Art and Sound in Peru, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo (Lima, 2016). Recently she debuted in Germany with the show Directed to the Sun at Quartier am Hafen (Cologne, 2017). Van der Putten is supported by CBK Rotterdam (Centre for Visual Arts Rotterdam) and is awarded a fellowship at Akademie Schloss Solitude (Stuttgart, 2019).

Del Aguila is a visual artist and cultural manager with a background as photographer, graphic designer and web programmer. Graduated from the Escuela Nacional Superior Autónoma de Bellas Artes del Perú – Visual Arts, Universidad ESAN – Marketing and Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú – Management, Del Aguila is currently running his communication studio, AIRE COMMUNICACIONES, aside of his function as Head of Communication at the MAC – Museum of Contemporary Art (Lima). Since the mid-90’s he has been designing independent publications in the alternative circuit with the publication studio Contenidos Mutantes. He was also collaborating with various activist collectives. In 2001 he joined the Aloardi collective and remained one of its core members until 2009.

Felipe del Aguila’s artistic work often seeks a balance between art and activism. He will immerse himself within the context of Rotterdam, in order to understand and ‘hack’ the local dynamic. He mainly works with performative interventions in the urban public space, collecting found materials and trash, using language and text within a social-critical approach. Growing up in the Piñonate district in Lima, located close to busy street markets, Felipe got inspired by the constant appropriation of public space within Peruvian cities in relation to street commerce – something that is practiced in Peru mostly by people with lower incomes.

DJ Kromosapiens will take us on a cosmic mix of post-rock, space-rock, post psychedelia, electronika and ethereal music.
