From huge sound boxes with flashing lights and entanglement of cables, through the virtual world of modularity to the smallest new synthesizer that fits in your pocket: Open Oscillator is for everyone. Whether you are an experienced sound maker, or a newbie into the world of electronic music: Open Oscillator is an open stage for everyone who likes to experiment with sound.

X Tempel will take place in Amsterdam in March 2023. This time on the stage of Tempel in de Pijp. In the middle of this architectural spaceship (built more than a hundred years ago as a theosophical temple) we ask you to come, make and listen to electronic sounds that have been prepared or created on the spot.

Open Oscillator X Tempel is a prelude to the two-day festival in June in the Tolhuistuin. In this 2023 kick off, we celebrate our most important element: the open stage for electronic music. Bring your portable electronic instrument to the festival and participate (registration on site). AV performances are also possible.

19.00 – 23.00 doors & bar open
20.00-22.00 open stage

Free admission, no reservation necessary.
