Christopher Commander
I am running as this year’s President as I would like to extend my involvement within EMS based on my status as a long-standing member and this year’s Head of DJs. These last 2 years have afforded me an insight into the both the workings of the society and provided insight into our target audience, venue tastes and artist preferences. My background as a London native and DJ, with club residencies (Ministry of Sound, Notting Hill Arts Club) and radio experience has lent me experience in liaising with organisers, finding venues and booking acts- all which are essential prerequisites for getting our flagship nights such as Synergy and Sneak booked. Despite the challenges of COVID, I have worked with Cameron – this year’s President – to host EMS livestreams as part of our ‘synergy from isolation’ series, which as we see a return to normality, we will ideally be able to restart in person this coming September. Finally, my involvement at Rare FM as this year’s Head of Events and President hopeful will allow scope for collaboration in terms of events, talks, and set a precedent for more cohesion within UCL’s creatively oriented community. In summary, I would like to use this variety of experiences to enhance the capability and reach of EMS as we begin to see a return to normality and the reopening of venues- all of which have reinvigorating possibilities for our community. Thank you!
