A MODERN-DAY SIREN

If dance floors were underwater, Oceanic would be a modern-day siren. As both a DJ and a producer – often releasing tracks on family label Nous’klaer – he creates immersive and shape- shifting environments in which boundaries dissolve. He will be at MIRA 2024 presenting his debut album Choral Feeling with the visuals from Tharim Cornelisse.

Like tides, the musical experiences Oceanic creates feel driven forces bigger than the sum of their parts, pushing towards new and unknown frontiers. Oceanic’s focus is on bringing people together to foster collective energy and experience joy together.

In 2023 he released his critically acclaimed debut album Choral Feeling, a body of work that almost exclusively is built up of the voices of 30+ friends. In 2019 he was part of the roster of SHAPE, an EU-funded network and platform for experimental artists. The coming years he continued his collaboration with legendary Dutch free-jazz vocalist Greetje Bijma, and with the avant garde classical Ensemble Klang from The Hague. As for what’s on the horizon, there’s no doubt that Oceanic will continue to evolve and surprise us all for many years to come.

Tharim Cornelisse is a digital designer from Amsterdam whose work explores fragmented realities and he will join Oceanic in a breathtaking AV show.
