'360: DISCOVERING THE MULTIDISCIPLINARY ARTIST' THE FIRST EDITION OF RELATED NOW AVAILABLE ON YOUTUBE

On November 28, Dano and Frankie Pizá met at Nike’s Box Barcelona to discuss music, creativity or the importance of identity in multidisciplinary artistic projects.

Conceived by LowKeyMoves, RELATED is a project born with the aim of providing new generations with the necessary tools to navigate in the current creative context, especially in the music sector. For this, in a close and personal way, RELATED seeks to shed together with key figures of the musical scene the work behind their projects, and show, through their experiences and points of view, how the music business currently works.

Under the title '360: Discovering the Multidisciplinary Artist', the first edition took place at Nike’s Box Barcelona with Dano, the founder of the celebrated Ziontifik collective and a versatile artist with an endless catalogue straddling music, design, audiovisual and creative direction. Joining him, Frankie Pizá, host and music journalist, became the link between Dano and the audience through a Q&A where they analysed many of the issues and concerns creatives come across when developing an artistic career.

Based on Dano’s personal experience in the creative field, starting with music, the dialogue with Frankie Pizá delved into many his other influences: from graphic design and photography to architecture, fashion and collaboration with other creatives as a necessary mean to artistic growth.

Another highlight took place when Dano and Frankie stopped to talk about the current state of the music industry and how the internet affects the person behind the artist.
