Open System

3 January 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Open System Banner Artwork

This is an open call to all the electronic music producers of Essex…

It doesn’t matter how much you may have spent on a set of studio headphones or monitors, nothing quite compares to hearing your music in a club on a loud soundsystem.
Our Open System night gives you the opportunity to do just that. Come down with a USB stick with your latest masterpiece on it and we’ll play it back to you at the levels that music deserves to be heard at.

Get instant feedback from fellow producers, be inspired by the work of your peers, share ideas and grab a few beers in a relaxed, respectful atmosphere. All genres are welcome and entrance is free

About the hosts….
Resonance is a cultural collective with a focus on collaboration between audio, visual and performance artists in Essex. Based around regular workshops of the same name, Resonance’s main aim is to foster a comfortable atmosphere for artists to develop their skills in live performance and installation environments. Whether it’s through the use of workshops, meetups or events, we encourage a diverse membership of budding and experienced artists to create alternative music and art
Hot Box is a quirky, live music venue and bar within Chelmsford railway station’s viaducts. Offering a chilled out vibe, with opportunities for original, local and international bands to perform on stage, with the latest in high quality sound equipment.
