ESSENTIA – Road Trip through South America’s Electronic Music Scene

 

“This project comes from our passion. Passion for electronic music and, above all, (especially) for the artists behind the music. Passion for underground cultures and counter-cultures. Passion to seek and find new talents. This project also comes from our passion for travelling and discovering the world, passion for South America, so rich in terms of artists, ideas and projects.”

Rodrigo y Marilou

 

 

ESSENTIA – Road Trip through South America’s Electronic Music Scene

 

 

ESSENTIA is an authentic road trip across 5 countries. From Lima, Peru, we will travel through Chile, Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil with one goal : meet those who dedicate their lives to make us dance and feel good.  DJ’s, producers, musicians, as well as club owners, labels managers, radios, sound engineers and show promoters… We want to link up with all those who share the same passion for music and counter-culture. Music as a pleasure and a gift, not as a business.

The idea of making this documentary emerged soon after the creation of DATEXEUS, first webzine dedicated to electronic music scene in Lima, Peru. Live reports, interviews, pictures, videos, podcasts, calendar : we feed it everyday with a lot of love.  We celebrate DATEXEUS‘s first year and our community has grown up day by day.

OUR WEBZINE AS A DIFFUSION & SPREADING PLATFORM

DATEXEUS will be, during our trip, a way to share our adventures and musical encounters through regular updates, photos and videos: the audience will follow every step of our great musical odyssey.

We want our documentary to be lived through all the content we will be posting everyday. We want to take our followers on a trip with us. Create a relationship and a real communication with them.

The digital platform will allow us to share news (information) about all the artists that we will meet during the trip, and allow our followers to discover their projects and music, to share their art, their talent, their message.

We also want that the webzine works as a talent exchange. We will be on the road for months, and we would love the artists from all over the places we will visit to be in touch with us. We could go and visit them in a more spontaneous way.

 

 

OUR GOALS

We have various goals & destinations in mind but it is very important to us to let the things & meetings flow. Let life happens. Of course, we will face lots of questions and contradictions. Why are some countries and cities more active than others in a musical point of view ? Does it come from their history ? Their origins ? How do they all get organized regarding the youth’s musical education ? Are the structures adapted ? How is underground scene going on ? Why do some European artists decide to live here, in South America ? And why so many local artists decide to move to Europe ? What are the main difficulties for the artists in these different countries ? How could the industry get better ? These questions, we will take them with us and we will try to answer them.

 

 

 

A LOW BUDGET, INTIMATE & REAL DOCUMENTARY

Our will is to make a low-budget documentary film : a van, a team of two passionate people, Marilou and Rodrigo, and lots, lots of miles . We want our film to be intimate, human and real. We want to meet all the authentic actors of the underground scene in the 5 countries we will visit. Try to understand the origins of electronic industry regarding the social, historical and economic context.

The final object will be a a documentary film online, available in DVD in a longer version.

The making of the documentary means a long trip through all South America. We will travel in a house / ship / office which will allow us to be independant and decide when & where to go. This vehicle will be our home and our office.

 

 

AN ORIGINAL & UNIQUE SOUNTRACK

As we want to give a lot of importance to all the artists we will meet during the trip & their talents, we decided that they will compose the documentary soundtrack. Each musical transition in the movie will have his on story. We want to create a unique  and original piece of art. A musical trip without boundaries.
