This October, David Block joins our speaker lineup at Afest Costa Rica. As a live electronic composer, multi-instrumentalist, and producer, he’ll be speaking about the Creative Spirit that lies in each of us, and various ways to access it.

Playing, composing, and conducting his own electronic symphony live on stage, his performances are brimming and layered with human emotion, world exploration, and international vibes. David explains that “The Human Experience aims to cross cultural barriers through music”.

David has performed all over the world sharing the stage with renowned artists such as, Thievery Corporation, Bonobo, Tipper, Emancipator, all the way to playing between Katy Perry and Alicia Keys.

Over the years he has toured in UK, Europe, Russia, Israel, Costa Rica, Mexico, Guatemala, Canada, India, Bali, and all over the United States at a variety of events including festivals like Boom, Burning Man, Electric Forest, Lightning in a Bottle, Symbiosis, and Envision.

Moving and traveling around the world, meeting people from all walks of life, David is continually learning, growing, and sharing inspiration with those around him, and explains that he is “consistently redefining himself as an artist, performer, and human being”.

… All of which makes him a perfect addition to Afest community.

According to reviews, “The Human Experience” always delivers an emotionally charged show, and we know our attendees are going to love it.

We can’t wait to see him do his thing in Costa Rica!
