Selector Pro has grown out of the British Council’s international radio programme — The Selector, which covers a 3 mln audience in 40 countries. Since 2015, The Selector has expanded to a series of concerts Selector Live, bringing artists such as Young Fathers, Everything Everything, Ray BLK, Benjamin Clementine to Kyiv. Since the summer of 2017 The Selector strand has grown with another addition — professional forum Selector Pro.
The first Selector Pro took place in two venues — Sentrum club and Istok studio. The forum was dedicated to music sales and distribution in the digital age, with guests and participants such as British artist Ghostpoet, experienced sound producer Ken Nelson, expert on digital distribution Kameil Sattar, Ukrainian artists ONUKA, The Maneken and others.
It’s been only six months, and the Selector Pro is back! With a new format, renewed concept and team. The key focus of this winter’s forum is synergy of music and other arts.
Exceeding the limits of perception is the key task for any contemporary artist. Today we see more and more interesting experiments at the intersection of several types of art. The second Selector Pro forum addressed similar acts in the music field: audiovisual performances, visual innovations in music shows, music videos, soundtracks for video games.
This winter’s Selector Pro took place December 8-9 in the IZONE creative hub in Kyiv (8 Naberezhno-Luhova St.). The programme included seven events involving British and Ukrainian speakers.
