By Eva Boots - Committees - 7 December 2022

During the AFExCie trip to Madrid, everyone in the group saw the passion for music that the Spanish people have.

In this article, Eva will teach you the art of flamenco, by explaining its three elements: cante, baile, and toque!

The most hated songs of Intermate

By Wouter Tulp - Interviews - 14 November 2022

My dearest Intermate members, the last articles were way too much about the best and favorite songs or artists.

I don’t care about any of these artists, so let's put the focus on the most hated artists within Intermate for a change.

Creating new Intermate hit songs using AI

By Morris Boers - Theme - 7 November 2022

Within intermate there exists a very specific and sometimes strange culture. Together with this culture also a very specific sub genre of music is intertwined.

That's why Morris went researching whether an AI algorithm could capture this music genre and create new Intermate hit songs.

LP what's there to see - KiekCie reviews

By van Dongen & de Beijer - Committees - 5 October 2022

As the KiekCie, we can most definitely say that we like pictures. When we think of pictures in music, then album covers come to mind first. And who doesn't know the famous picture of four men walking on a zebra crossing, or a naked baby diving after a dollar in a pool? Perhaps you know the man with a red and blue lightning bolt on his face, or the four men whose shadowy faces adorn the black background of their famous album?

The evolution of TostCieworhty Music

By Naud Janssen - Committees - 27 September 2022

Tuesday, at around 12:15, all Intermate members slowly but surely enter the Internaat. Some find a space on the couch, some find a place to work, but most of them stand in a line towards the left corner of the bar. A bizarre phenomenon for those that do not know what Tuesday mean for our study association, but for those that do, this is just normal. With their ears pricked up, they are waiting for the tunes that indicate that TostCie Tuesday is about to begin. With the instantly recognizable “du du du tudu du du du”, everyone knows that it is time to order one of the delicious special tosti’s! But how did this strange ritual originate? Let’s explore the rich history of maybe the most memorable Intermate playlist out there, the TostCie Tuesday playlist!

By - - Theme - 14 June 2022

Mijn vader was degene die mij kunst al van kleins af aan bijbracht. Hij was zelf ook wel een kunstenaar: hij speelde in tientallen bandjes, componeerde zijn eigen muziek, schilderde, en schreef liedjes & gedichtjes. Zijn gedichtjes hadden iets speciaals: een twist op het einde. Iets onverwachts waar je van moest lachen of waar je raar van opkeek. Net als voor mijn vader, staat kunst dichtbij me. Voor deze keer, kies ik gedichtjes. Hier zijn 3 gedichtjes met mijn vader als inspiratiebron, waarvan ik hoop dat je moet lachen, je raar op kijkt of je gewoonweg blij wordt. Want dat werd ik van de zijne.
