The creation of my way of working

by Jacco Gardner

In this Workshop - hosted by Other Echo and mobility concept Lynk & Co - we welcome the Dutch-born psychedelic explorer Jacco Gardner. He began his career sounding like he had been unearthed on a time travel trip back to 1967, and nowadays his music took a turn toward a spacy, synthesizer heavy approach making a blend of psych-pop and Tangerine Dream.

Genre: Electronica & Experimental

Level: Intermediate

What you’ll learn

Jacco will take us along the Commodore Amiga to show how he uses the ‘M' sequencer. He’ll tap in on all the tools he’s into and will explain what inspires him from the 16-bit era to particularly make music. How did musicians, such as synth pioneer Laurie Spiegel, use the first personal computers in their studios and what did Jacco take from them in his current way of working?

Dutch-born psychedelic explorer Jacco Gardner began his career sounding like he had been unearthed on a time travel trip back to 1967, his early recordings, like his 2012 debut album Cabinet of Curiosities, were faithful reproductions of the baroque pop and toytown psych that were taking over pop music at the time. In February 2013, 3VOOR12 called him one of the most acclaimed Dutch musicians of the moment, both in the Netherlands and abroad. His debut single Clear the air was released in February 2012 on the Spanish label Action Weekend. In February 2013, his album Cabinet of curiosities was released on the American label Trouble in Mind. Gardner has performed in Spain, the United Kingdom and in the Netherlands, among others at Noorderslag, Eurosonic and the popular television show De Wereld Draait Door.
