We already told you: this guy Jacob Korn is a talented fella! The Dresden-hailing producer was responsible for one of 2011’s most irresistible techno tracks, and the video that came alongside his single ‘She’ left us rather impressed. And it seems as if the Uncanny Valley collective member won’t slow down in the new year: his hometown, the city of Dresden, is now honoring his efforts with its furtherance award 2012.
The award includes prize money of 5,000 Euros and will be awarded on March 17th at Festspielhaus Hellerau. Since 1993, the prize honors the artistic works of people or groups that focus on the city of Dresden as their primary workbase. Jacob Korn, who studied media technology, stated: “I am delighted to receive this year’s furtherance award. I feel that this is a signal for Dresden’s cultural policy, with the prize not being awarded to the established arts (in 2012), but to a new art form.” The jury honored Korn as an “exposed representative of a cultural scene which improved its image during the last years and is giving utterance to a young generation’s cultural life.”
