Nestled amidst Amsterdam's historic Houthavens lies The Other Side, an embodiment of artistic evolution, creativity, and self-expression. Within the walls of a repurposed bike workshop, they've crafted an ambiance that resonates with their unique sound. Starting September 30th, this unique venue invites music lovers to dive deep into an unmatched immersive auditory realm.
THE OTHER SIDE is among the select venues globally that boast revolutionary L-ISA immersive sound technology from L-Acoustics.
The main room, with a capacity to accommodate 900 enthusiasts, is equipped with a state-of-the-art 14.1.5 L-Acoustics sound system that surrounds the audience, offering listeners unparalleled clarity, a natural auditory experience, and an expansive sound panorama.
Introduced in 2016, L-ISA enables artists to create and deliver immersive sound experiences for live productions.
With typical stereo sound systems, most concertgoers are outside the central "sweet spot," missing the full audio experience. L-ISA spatial audio technology ensures every listener is at the heart of the performance and feels like they are "inside the music." Even more astonishingly, expanding the stage speaker setup to envelop the audience with sound from every angle results in a 360-degree experience. Prepare to feel the music surround you, to hear every note, every beat, from every direction. This is L-ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound.
THE FIRST CLUB IN THE
WORLD WITH A L-ISA SPATIAL AUDIO SOUND SYSTEM, WHERE YOU DON’T JUST ATTEND, YOU IMMERSE. FIND YOUR RHYTHM. RELEASE IT.
WE’LL BE ON YOUR SIDE
BEHIND THE OTHER SIDE
Behind this pioneering endeavor stands Doeshka Vrede and Jasper Löwik. With the emergence of the pandemic, they dreamt together: of a collective of artists, a dynamic music label, and memorable events that surround it. Little did they know, their dream would breathe life in Houthavens' old bikes workshop. This isn't serendipity but a testament to their vision. Doeshka and Jasper have crafted a path for artists, enabling them to grow, create, and fully embrace themselves. Their ethos revolves around aligning with nature's rhythms, allowing individuals to tap into their purest, most joyful selves.
The duo passionately drives the agency and music label daily. They've curated a space for an artist in residence from their roster, the innovative act, End of Time, offering them a spacious audio studio to hone their craft. While weekly dance, jazz and alt - classical events set the rhythm, the vast event space also reverberates with unique audio experiences.
Doeshka Vrede and Jasper Löwik, the visionaries behind The Other Side, envisioned a space beyond just music. With L-ISA, this venue will not only amplify sound. Their sanctuary nurtures artists and visitors, aligning with nature's rhythms, inviting everyone to resonate with their authentic selves.
Sound is integral to performance. Sound is integral to art. Sound is integral to almost any experience.
Today’s most exciting events create outstanding visual experiences using lights, videos, costumes and pyrotechnics. Even if finding words to describe the aural experience can be difficult, sound is equally important to creating memorable experiences and can even be transformative.
L-ISA immersive sound technology is a new way to design and experience sound in ultra-high- resolution spatial audio, combined with accurate sound placement to bring unprecedented vibrancy and clarity. With L-ISA, artists share their music through extremely natural and detailed sound, ultimately creating a more direct and deeper connection with the audience.
