IR House at Pikes master logo 20cm def

…a night of scary surprises, horrible hellbabies and freaky fun…

Thursday 31 October from 9pm

‘Slip out from the shadows, you creatures of the Ibiza night,
Halloween is creeping up and it’s not a pretty sight,
Ghosts and Ghouls, Spooks and Sprites,
Blood and Gore when this Vamp bites…’

After last year’s scarily successful party of the same time, Halloween ‘wildcard’, VAMP is back in black this Thursday 31st October for a night of toe-tingling, blood-curdling madness up at Ibiza’s favourite haunted house on the hill, the 400 year old finca that is Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel.

VAMP-HALLOWEEN-POSTER

As per last year, organisers of the Halloween extravaganza Jillian Canney (FIX Ibiza) and Leanne Chilton (Ibiza Rocks) are pulling out the stops, diving head first into their cast iron cauldron of morbid mischief and saucy spells, their ultimate goal to trick and treat Ibiza’s naughtiest nocturnal creatures to a Halloween they may never forget.

Providing the spooky soundtrack throughout the night, DJs BONES, STRAY KITTEN, DAVID PHILLIPS, MISS CHADDERS and STEF SWINGLER are the demons in charge of the dancefloor.  Local duo SERENADE will also be creeping out of the shadows for a live (as opposed to undead) performance very much based on the event’s central theme of Halloween. All of the above combined and plenty of opportunity to bust one’s monster moves on the dancefloor.

Amongst other scary surprises being concocted for the party, beware of the Bloody Bathtub, where guests are invited to scream, shriek and even sing the night away in the SCAREOKE competition. Prize for the best crooner…

Talking of prizes, Head Vamps Jill and Leanne will also be dishing out a few of those along the course of the evening for the best Halloween costumes, fancy dress pretty much obligatory for this particular party. Think vampires, werewolves, witches, faeries, demons, devils, spirits, shapeshifters, ghouls, ghosts, zombies, monsters, mummies, and mynaeds but don’t be scared, any other variety of spooky/inventive/topical/comedy fancy dress get up is welcome to join in the manky mix.

Keeping up the Halloween spirit, literally, local spiritualist and medium Lisa Chadderton (Garden of Light) will be conducting a series of one-on-one psychic readings throughout the evening. A limited number of time slots are available for booking and reservations are recommended.

In charge of lighting and special effects in and around the hotel and its grounds, island experts, Aladdin Lights are back on board to help turn this Halloween into a veritable Nightmare on Pike St. Man behind that particular operation, Simon Hall promises an assortment of tricks and treats to make you turn in your grave.

As far as fodder goes, organisers have another bonus lined up for their gory guests with local catering company, Cook Ibiza stepping up to provide a Halloween BBQ with a difference at an additional cost of 20€ per head. With a menu very much in keeping with the theme, the Cook Ibiza team will be serving up a feast fit for the most bloodthirsty of critters from 9pm-11pm, with a selection of the finest cuts of meat, all sourced from local suppliers and accompanied by a selection of salads and other yummy Halloween treats. Advance booking is recommended.  http://www.grubclub.com/Cook-Ibiza

As a final point to note, and due to public demand, last year’s Star of the Halloween Show, The Gnarly Witch will also make a return visit to Pikes for Halloween, bringing with her a new addition to the proceedings, the HellBaby, offspring of the Gnarly one and spawned by Satan himself. Devilled Eggs, if you will…

All that, plus a whole lot more blood, guts and gore; a monster mash from 9pm till the last banshee wails.

Tickets are now on sale at 10€ and prior purchase is recommended for guaranteed entry. Price includes a trick or treat, a witch’s sup and a bloody good night out.

Still not scared enough? With the Ibiza family spirit in mind, we also suggest a quick stop off at Bar Grial this Halloween for a bit of Colin Peters before heading to the Boutique Hostal Salinas from 5am where the Halloween celebrations continue till God Knows What Time…

BO WOODY WINTER + CLOSE UP ART present ‘DJ ICONS’ at ATZARO, IBIZA, FRI OCT 11, 2013: Art + Music meets Synesthesia

FRIDAY 11 OCTOBER 2013, 4pm-4am

at AGROTURISMO ATZARÓ

Art + Music meets Synesthesia

 

(Press Release/FIX IBIZA/ 4 OCT 2013)

As another Ibiza summer comes gracefully to a close, there is still one more party on the agenda that should not be missed. We are talking about DJ ICONS – a celebration of the history of house music through an astonishing 25 piece art exhibition presented by celebrated Dutch artist, Bo Woody Winter and confirmed to take place on Friday 11 October at the gorgeous rural hotel, Agroturismo Atzaró, in the north of the island of Ibiza.

Over the past weeks, expectations for the event have started to reach new heights, with news on the progression of the paintings embedded in neon and liquid gloss filtering through the social networks from a studio somewhere in the depths of Holland. The 25 innovative and groundbreaking art pieces aim to portray the most credible/influential DJ figures in the house music industry, at least as seen through artist Bo Woody Winter’s eyes.

Wim Van Zon, producer of the event and a leading art and music expert in the Netherlands, said the Close Up Art team was excited at the prospect of launching the exhibition on the island. “Not only will the portraits with Winter’s unique synesthesia be shown, but also new concepts that we have developed. In the exhibition the first installations with neon and Bo’s images, cast in liquid gloss, will be a stunning premiere. And the synesthesia FX software program that Tim Groote has developed will be an extension of the Icons at the party that will surprise all visitors. The whole atmosphere Bo has created will fit Ibiza beautifully.”

The Big Picture: An event touching all senses

Organised by Close Up Art -a members-only club of art aficionados that has Bo Woody Winter and Wim Van Zon, curator of the North Sea Jazz Festival Art Show, at its helm- this is an event that promises to see out the summer in a colourful explosion of spectacular art, eye-boggling 3D light FX and a line up of some of the finest names in the house music world.

But it is Bo Woody Winter’s impressive collection of portraits that form the focal point of this event, with his 20 representations of the world’s most influential DJs ranging in size from 1.40m x1m to 3.20m x1.40m, all sprawling across the Gallery and grounds of Atzaro.

There is no doubt that this collection of DJ Icons combined with the additional neon/light and special effects spectacle, catwalk show, presentation of the liquid gloss art concept plus pure house music all fusing together for a 3D SYNESTHESIA FX provided by Centre-Lights and Ginvi, a definite first for Ibiza and shaping up to be one heck of a party.

As far as the music is concerned, and bearing in mind that this event is a celebration of House Music through the years, organisers Close Up Art are delighted to confirm that, as well as Holland’s clubbing pioneer, Dimitri Kneppers, Ibiza’s original party-starter, Alfredo Fiorito is also confirmed to DJ at the event at Atzaro. Here is a man who can be credited as the catalyst of the entire Ibiza clubbing scene, since way back in ’89, when the likes of Danny Rampling, Nicky Holloway and Paul Oakenfold first stumbled across his Balearic sound in the middle of Amnesia one very fateful night.

Joining these two revered individuals, Ibiza’s own Joan Ribas, a master of his craft and a much respected DJ figure on the island, Sarah Main, long time Pacha Resident and island darling, Eli Rojas, DJ Resident at Blue Marlin and DJ Pat, a well known and respected name on the funky scene back in his homeland of Holland.

CATWALK SHOW

Taking his art to the catwalk, Bo Woody Winter uses the human form as a canvas, adding another element to his art and promising a living, breathing art installation like no other.

3D SYNESTHESIA FX

With the aid of the 3D Synesthesia software program, this is creative synchronicity at its finest as music and Bo Woody’s art fuse seamlessly providing both an aural and visual spectacle perfectly representing Winter’s concept. The trial showcase of the creative fusion was presented recently at the Recycle Lounge party/exhibition in Amsterdam on September 28th, generating much interest from public and press alike.
