Photos: SHAPE @ Novas Frequencias 2018

Here are some pics of SHAPE artist OKO DJ, playing at Brazil’s Novas Frequencias Festival, supported by RIAM.

Born out from the partnership between curator Chico Dub and cultural manager Tathiana Lopes, Novas Frequências was born in 2011 always in search of artists that break pre-established frontiers looking for new sound languages. For the festival, the experience with sound and the exploration of its limits are more relevant than genre and music styles – what makes it closer to contemporary art than to music as entertainment. Anyway, if one tries to identify music labels at the NF’s 8th edition there are processes related to dub, techno, drone, noise, psychedelia, ambient, house music continuum, experiments related to national and international sound mythologies and the infinite trance that comes from the African drumming.
