Guests can enjoy this deep-listening experience powered by Philips Sound for free at the Bimhuis in Amsterdam on October 15 and 16.
Philips TV & Sound joins forces with Audio Obscura to create a brand new musical experience called ‘Into Light’ during Amsterdam Dance Event. During the experience, visitors can enjoy 20 minutes of full focus, and distinctively compressed music produced by DJ and producer Patrice Bäumel. The deep-listening experience can be found at the Bimhuis in Amsterdam on October 15 and 16 and is free to visit for everyone.
People listen to music while working, exercising or traveling, but listening to music with full focus is something that is becoming rarer on a daily basis. However, music is a very powerful tool which creates dopamine, the hormone responsible for feelings of happiness and satisfaction in the brain. Philips therefore believes it is an important stimulus for relaxation and has decided to bring DJ and producer Patrice Bäumel and event organiser Audio Obscura together to create a unique music experience that encourages visitors to surrender themselves completely to the sounds of music.
The music is composed by Patrice Bäumel. Originally from Germany, the DJ and techno producer is one of the most influential DJs in the Netherlands and brings deep accumulated life experience and depth into his music. Patrice Bäumel, who made his name at club Trouw, is signed to the famous German Kompakt label, and can now regularly be found at the top of Beatport charts. On the collaboration Patrice Bäumel said:
“Amsterdam Dance Event is one of my favourite times of the year because for a week the city is all about electronic music. Although this year we celebrate ADE differently than we had hoped, I am happy that I have been able to create a unique experience to let people enjoy my track in full focus. This piece is about a journey that begins in darkness and slowly builds its way into a euphoric crescendo of light, positivity, optimism and love. A guiding light out of the difficult times we live in accompanying us into a bright future”.
Crystal clear sound
Philips has created a unique listening experience with its latest Fidelio L-3 headphones, allowing music lovers to enjoy the music with a crystal-clear sound during the ‘Into Light’ immersion. The headphones completely isolate visitors from the outside world, allowing them to relish the deep-listening experience undisturbed.

‘Into Light’ can be found at the Bimhuis on Piet Heinkade 3 in Amsterdam. Tickets are free of charge, but registration is required. Visitors can book a free 20-minute timeslot via this link.

About Patrice Bäumel
Patrice Bäumel has carved out a unique path within the European and global techno industry. He is a Beatport chart-topping producer and top-flight international DJ who can comfortably fit in with the stellar cast of Global Underground compilers/mixers. In 2008 his release ‘Roar’ on ‘Get Physical’ became an Ibiza and worldwide club staple supported by everyone from Pete Tong to Danny Tenaglia, a success that gave him a profile to play internationally. In 2010 his performances at Trouw ensured that the industry perceived him as a serious player. Even with his Global Underground mix boosting Patrice’s profile further and his tracks regularly showcased by the biggest names in the scene, he still sees himself as ‘work in progress’. He may have been producing music for decades, but his career has only just begun. As first being an autodidact, he is now determined to expand the possibilities of DJing and production both as his interest in art and technology.
