Title More than music : a psychedelic discovery in Rotterdam, the Netherlands / a film by Iris Hesse
Published Leiden, South Holland : Institute of Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology, Universiteit Leiden, 2018


Description 1 online resource (35 minutes)
Summary The music genre psychedelic trance is not very known to many. When heard of this scene, in general, prejudices dominate the view of this music style, which consist usually of listeners are seen as weird old 'hippies' that dance the night away and use a lot of drugs. The scene is however growing stronger in The Netherlands, just as there is a rise visible in the interest of green and neo-hippie movements in todays' world. In the city of Rotterdam, Iris Hesse followed and stayed with a group called the Rotori's; a psytrance event organization which tries to renew the old image through their experimental events that focus on psytrance culture. This thesis consists of two parts; a film and a multimodal text. The film centers on the build up to the psytrance party that was held in March 2018. This narrative is enriched with deeper insights of main organizers Pieter and Figo, through the use of small portraits. The multimodal text will be based on ethnographic data drawn from all research participants and tries to create an overall view of psytrance culture as practiced through the members of the organization, and tries to situate this movement in today's world
