Rewire’s mission is to promote and foster adventurous music and sound. Besides presenting artists during the annual festival or year-round events, Rewire commissions several artists each year to develop new projects, as well as produce new shows. In addition to this, Rewire is now launching a two-year development residency programme for young emerging artists, based in The Netherlands. With this programme Rewire offers a development trajectory that provides artists with the opportunity to develop and express their musical and creative ideas. The final outcome of the trajectory will be presented at Rewire.
The first ‘Young Artist in Residence’ is No Plexus, a genre-queer electronic duo comprising vocalist and composer Bec Plexus and producer No Compliments. The duo finds their own expression of queer joy and pride in sonic intersectionality and resistance to musical categorisation. Their music is unified by themes of persistence, defiance, physicality, fantasy and playfulness. The duo made a lasting impression with their visual album ‘Manicurism’ at Rewire 2021 - Online edition. For the next two years, No Plexus will be working on a new record, a new audiovisual live show, and a stage production.
On Friday October 21st, No Plexus celebrates the release of their visual album ‘Manicurism’ with a film screening and A/V performances by the upcoming electronic musicians Carmen Jaci & Matthew Schoen and unluca★★★. The release party will take place in NDSM’s newest venue called MACA in Amsterdam and coincides with the film’s digital release. Tickets are available via Amsterdam Dance Event.
The ‘Young Artist in Residence’ trajectory with No Plexus is part of Fonds Podiumkunsten's Nieuwe Makers programme.
