Still filling out your SXSW itinerary? Head on over to The Palm Door and check out the French vibe of SXSW with the French Waves showcase presented by Zorba. French House (a collaboration between French Tech and French Waves) makes its return to SXSW with a showcase spanning over two days, Tuesday, March 14 and Wednesday, March 15, and will feature the latest French electronic music, cutting-edge French tech startups, and innovative French virtual reality projects and films.
The official French Waves music showcase will be held on Tuesday, March 14 from 8:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. and will feature France’s hottest, up-and-coming producers, Molécule and Jacques. The music showcase will also be live streamed online.
Wednesday, March 15, French House will host the French Waves brunch from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. where special speakers, Molécule, Jacques and Julian Starke, director of French Waves, will guide audiences through a unique musical and visual trip into French electronic music. They will discuss their viewpoints, experiences and anecdotes to share their vision of what French electronic music is today.
Lastly, showcase hosts Zorba and Miala will unveil the first images of Molécule’s upcoming album “Musique Polaire” on Wednesday, March 15 at the Musique Polaire meet-up drink. Molécule spent 34 non-stop days, traveling over 4,986 nautical miles, lugging 200 kilos of music equipment and enduring 13-hour recording sessions isolating himself in one of the most inhospitable regions of Greenland to create an unprecedented sound experience with “Musique Polaire.”
The Musique Polaire meet-up drink will be open to the public and will be introduced by Molécule, Arnaud Meersseman (Miala) and Olivier Mardi (ZORBA).
All events will be held at the Palm Door on Sabine, (located at 401 Sabine St., Austin, Texas 78701) and are open to SXSW badge holders, media and those listed on the VIP guest list.
