The VIVO Music Festival was conceived several years ago as co-founders Siwoo Kim and John Stulz were crossing paths while attending Carnegie Hall’s Ensemble Connect fellowship program in New York — Kim on his way in and Stulz just completing his residency. The two Central Ohio natives had crossed paths numerous times as young musicians in Columbus-area ensembles and training programs, and they quickly decided their hoped-for collaboration should bring them back home. “We said, ‘We’re both from Columbus, both raised there, and Columbus already has these fantastic musical organizations,’” Kim said in a phone interview. “We thought to add to [existing] audiences, to target young professionals [and] millennials, and to bring the entire community together.”

Current Issue

Following a two-year hiatus and a year spent at the Ohio Expo Center, Breakaway Music Festival returns to the Mapfre Stadium stomping grounds at which it debuted in 2013. But the fest taking over the Crew SC stadium on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 1 and 2, bears only a passing resemblance to its forbear, which featured a diverse roster of rappers (Kendrick Lamar), rockers (Twenty One Pilots) and electronic musicians (Bassnectar). Gone, for now, are the guitars, with promoters focused almost exclusively on up-and-coming hip-hop and EDM acts that should collide to create a festival vibe in-line with director Harmony Korine’s “Spring Breakers.”

Since February, the “In Pursuit” concert series has been bringing local artists — from rapper Dom Deshawn to “adventure-folk” artist Hebdo — into the shop each month during Gallery Hop. The endeavor, created by married couple Derek and Tessa DuPont, not only highlights talent, but provides a unique marketing opportunity for Pursuit. “It’s been amazing,” Derek continued, reflecting on the season, which will close with indie-rock band Winter Makes Sailors and an exhibit by Alison Rose’s Nicholas Nocera on Saturday, Sept. 2. (A separate exhibit by Nocera’s partner, Alison, will be shown nearby at Surprise Modern Party + Cocktail Goods.) ”[People] were looking at [suits] and they were taking pictures in the photo booth and asking questions and staying the whole time. So as far as the marketing piece for [Pursuit], we saw the success right away.”

Four years ago, just before Columbus MC Illogic was about to perform at the Honey Hive Gallery in San Francisco, an opening set by San Jose producer/rapper/singer Lucid Optics caught his ear. “His beats were insane. I talked to him afterwards and asked, ‘Who produced your stuff?’ And he said he did,” Illogic said recently during an interview Downtown. “I just asked him right then and there if he wanted to work on an album together.” After four years of emailing tracks back and forth in a long-distance collaboration, the resulting 10-track album, Lucid Logic, is here; the rapper will celebrate with an album-release show on Sunday, Sept. 3 at Double Happiness.
