Tartu Kultuurikvartali arendusprojekti toetuseks

 
 
Tartu muusikanädal 2013
 
Tallinn Music Weeki eesmärk on 5 tegevusaasta jooksul olnud Eesti muusikatööstuse areng nii rahvusvaheliselt kui ka kodus. Mitte ükski artist ei ole suutlik alustama rahvusvahelist karjääri kui tal puudub koduriigis võimalus piisavalt kontserte anda ning oma kuulajaskonda arendada. Paraku on Eesti kohaliku turu nõrkus seotud just sellega, et üle-Eestiline kontsertpaikade võrgustik ei suuda tagada stabiilset, soodsat, artistisõbralikku ja professionaalset taustsüsteemi. Kontserttegevuse märkimisväärseks arenguks ei piisa ka lihtsalt tehnikainvesteeringust vaid oluline on hoolikalt jälgida, et ühes paigas saaksid kokku motiveeritud ja entuasiastlik meeskond ning siis ka infrastruktuuritoetus. 
 
Koosluse Genialistide Klubi, Tartu Uus Teater, Elektriteater, Uus Õu ja Müürileht näol on tegemist potentsiaalika algatusega, kuna kõik nimetatud organisatsioonid on end meeskondadena juba tõestanud ning minimaalsete vahenditega on suudetud tegelikult väga olulistele algatustele juba ka algus teha. Investeerida tuleb inimestesse ja ideedesse mitte kuivalt majadesse ja tehnikasse. Kultuurikvartali arenduse läbi saaks Tartu linn endale 3 saali ja 2 välilavaga multifunktsionaalse festivalikeskuse, mis muudaks hoobilt hõlpsamaks ja soodsamaks nii iganädalaste kontserttuuride korraldamise, läbi mille jõuaks ehk ka rohkem välisartiste edaspidi Tartusse (tehnikainvesteeringu tõttu muutuks kontserdikorraldamine erakorraldajatele ning artistidele endile soodsamaks ning samas kontserdikogemus publikule ka kvaliteetsemaks), möödapääsmatu digi-kinotehnika investeeringu saaks Elektriteater ning kahtlemata soodustaks see ka suuremate festivalide toimumist. Koostöös tARTuffi festivaliga plaanime kolmandat aastat korraldada Tartus ka Tartu muusikanädalat – oleksime selgelt motiveeritud ja huvitatud kasutama Kultuurikvartali kõiki lavasid ja võimalusi. Usume, et läbi moodsa ja professionaalse, samas miljööväärtusliku ja sümpaatselt boheemlasliku festivalikeskuse oleks meil head võimalused kasvatada Tartu muusikanädalast välja üle-Eestiliselt ning ka rahvusvaheliselt külastatav suvine muusikafestival, mis koostöös tARTuffiga toob augusti kuus Tartusse mastaapse üle-linna kultuurifestivali atmosfääri. 
 
Usume, et investeeridua tuleb headesse ideedesse, pädevatesse inimestesse ja infrastruktuuri. See kõik loob pinnase ja eeldused isetekkelise ja omaalgatusliku nüüdiskultuuri arenguks. Tartu Kultuurikvartal on just selline projekt, kus kõik need komponendid on paigas ja kenas tasakaalus.
 
Toetame!

Wyrm Sub Terra debut album Wyrm out now

 

Wyrm Sub Terra

Trash metal band Wyrm Sub Terra released their debut album 'Wyrm' on 23rd November.

Active since 2011, Wyrm Sub Terra is an Estonian trash metal triumvirate, a heavy-handed sonic expression of men with old-school experience. Theirs is an uncompromising attitude that sounds fresh and original while staying true to the spirit of the 80s extreme metal. WST’s first album is a mix of old school experience and uncompromised roughness with an attitude, tonalities varying from deep scenic-metal to hasty guitar riffs.  Last track off the album, an instrumental trash-ballad 'Twenty One Grams (Weight Of Soul)' is the first one of its kind from these shores.

Wyrm Sub Terra is:


Lauri Kuriks - guitar, lead vocals

Markko - drums, vocals

Toomas Pihel – bass
