Pitch & Sync Reflects on Month Long Residency in Oostelijk Meterhuis

Pitch & Sync Reflects on Month Long Residency in Oostelijk Meterhuis
This past April marked music and sound agency Pitch & Sync’s month-long residency in Oostelijk Meterhuis, a unique period building located on the historic Westergasterrein in the middle of the Westerpark. Riding high in their 13th year, the residency kicked off a new era for the company, which seeks to amplify its love for music and wider culture. For the team there it's ALL about the music. Always has been, always will be. To this end, this was P&S newbie Denise Valk's time to shine…

Given that Pitch & Sync has been working in Amsterdam for its entire 13 years, it seemed right for its team to give back to this culturally rich city by staging a continuous showcase of talent.

Following the announcement of Duncan Stutterheim as the new owner of Amsterdam’s historic Westergasfabriek, with the aim to make the site a ‘diverse cultural village,’ Pitch & Sync wanted to bring this vision to life.

In line with Duncan’s vision to turn the Meterhuis into a ‘rotating art exhibition’ throughout the month, it was visually transformed by the ‘Veldhoen & Schiffmacher’ tattoo artists, Collective 416. Henk Schiffmacher is one of Holland's most well-known tattoo artists famed for inking Red Hot Chili Peppers, Kurt Cobain and Pearl Jam.

Not only did Denise curate a remarkable month of entertainment, she was responsible for genuine musical 'moments', something that doesn't happen every day, when you clock a stranger in the audience and you both know you’re hearing something very special indeed.

The programme mixed genres and showcased unparalleled musical talent - including Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip), who offered a performance on Pitch & Sync's bespoke 10 Octave Piano (April 23rd), an intimate performance from local Dutch artist Someone (April 18th), and a funk-gone-afrobeat tinged party set from INI & Friends debuting tracks off singer LYMA‘s new EP (April 4th), just to name a few.
