On November 23rd 2013 the Microcomputer & Related Culture Foundation presents its next event. West Side Trio, an innovative string trio which members are also part of the Metropole Orchestra, and Julian van Aalderen (poke -1,170) join forces to pay tribute to 30 years of MSX to create a wonderful audiovisual show in which many well-known MSX themes are going to get a new and fresh interpretation. The setting is the Dokzaal in Amsterdam, a former church hall, which only adds to the magic already promised.

West Side Trio accompany animated films and do performances and concerts, all with their own music or very special arrangements of existing tunes. The special West Side Trio sound is based on string instruments mixed with live electronics. They also collaborate with other artists and can be heard mostly with their own arrangements on CDs of artists like Sonja van Hamel, Ken Stringfellow and Lewis Phillips.

Julian van Aalderen, on MRC better known as poke -1,170 is a VJ probably best known for being part of The C-men. Here you can watch him perform live at the Lowlands festival. And you may also remember his work for this Lenny Kravitz video.

The concert will be attended by a historic group of people including familiar names from the MSX past. Of course we also want you, an MSX Resource Center regular, to join in the festivities. After the concert, we continue at the bar where there will be plenty of time to get together and relive 30 years of MSX. You might bump into people you never talked to before...

And what about our Open Podium? The Dokzaal is a very suitable venue for presentation and we dare you to make an appearance yourself. So, if you want to remember the good old days, share a nice story or tell an interesting anecdote, get on stage and shout! Maybe you're an active MSX developer and would like to share your project with an enthusiastic audience? Please join in! You want to organize a quiz or sell some merchandise? The stage is all yours. To secure your own 15 minutes of fame, you need to sign up for the open podium during the registration process.

What? A registration process? Yes, it is a private party and therefore we ask you to register. By signing up for the event you will also be visible on the public attendees list. Yes, that list you will be proud of in ten years time when someone asks you if you were there!

West Side Trio now have made a selection of msx tunes which they're going to perform live on stage. They're really up to it, which i think, is utterly cool Smile
