Kontrast is a Nueva Forma curated, audio / visual electronic music event. Ultimately, Kontrast is an idea for a creative social mixer, and a way for creative, audio/visual electronic music performances to move away from cramped clubs and into more eclectic and ornate settings where the artistry of the medium can be better explored and appreciated. Our hope is to make Kontrast a bi-annual event, taking place every winter & every summer.
  • KONTRASTKontrast™ is a Nueva Forma - curated audio / visual electronic music event, and creative social mixer. It was mid November of 2010, just before the new year, that we finalized the conception of Kontrast™. After which, we carefully selected and partnered with various local and national companies that we felt could help bring Kontrast™ to life. Behance was among the carefully selected companies that we contacted, in hopes of potential sponsorship and support for the event. We had the fortunate pleasure of speaking directly with Scott Belsky & Alex Krug of the Behance network. We explained the purpose of the event, and later followed up with more details regarding where the event would be held, and how it would be executed. Behance agreed to partner and sponsor the event, as well as the wonderful people at Think AV (Portland, Oregon's leading audio / visual event service provider), Filter Digital (Portland, Oregon's leading creative staffing agency), Umpqua Bank (who pride themselves on helping and supporting community events), MacForce (Portland's number 1 authorized reseller and repair center of Apple products), Ninkasi Brewing (one of Oregon's most popular brewing establishments), Ziba design (Portland's leading industrial design company, who also happened to host the event in their spacious design auditorium), and last, but not least, yours truly. Thus, Kontrast™ was officially born...
