What is a Resident Artist? For BLESZ, it's an opportunity to bring his distinct creative perspective to people in a uniquely applicable way. Through his use of spoken word poetry, MC'ing, and DJ'ing, BLESZ's talents give Hatch a way for people to emotionally connect with what they learn in the programs. Ennio ‘BLESZ’ Burleson started mixing music in 1996, eventually developing his talents in multiple creative directions. He is an Amsterdam-based sound designer, producer, artist, and cultural entrepreneur. Outside of Hatch, he is currently involved in several international spoken word and music projects.
