BEAM// Join Fear Of Fiction Festival…

Bristol welcomes a brand new music festival to its ranks in the shape of Fear Of Fiction on November 10th, and we are delighted to announce we will be providing a day time programme of music and visuals at the legendary Cube Cinema, 4pm - 7pm.

Our line up includes three of Bristol’s most talented and left field acts.

4.30pm - Giant Swan

Soundscaping via only guitar pedals and mantra enducing vocals, from this not to be missed errant off-shoot of the Naturals. Check out their session for BBC Introducing here.

5.15pm - SJ Esau

Multi-instrumentalist/songwriter/electronic box tweaker SJ Esau offers a rare outing of his left of centre pop brilliance,  check out this video to get a taste..

6.00pm - Oliver Wilde

We are over the moon to be hosting Oliver Wilde’s debut full band show. Recently taken under the feathery wing of the Howling Owl label, Oliver serves up a warm soup of glimmering glitch acoustica and fuzzy dreamspired tones that bring Sparklehorse and Elliot Smith to mind… check out a video here..

We will also have BEAM’s very own Scott Hendy on the decks to keep things rolling, plus local art fair. 

The festival - based in Stokes Croft - promises to be the start of an annual fixture, and with the likes of Toy, Three Trapped Tigers, some very special guest DJs and stages from the likes of Invada, Artrocker and Gold Flake Paint, this is sure to be a great event. And tickets are more than reasonable at £15 for early birds, so grab yours now, and we will see you at the Cube on November 10th!

Bristol Exchange of Arts & Music and Watershed present
BRISTOL TO BROOKLYN // TUESDAY 16TH OCTOBER 2012
The Knitting Factory, 361 Metropolitan Ave. Brooklyn, NY 11211
2pm – Free // 7pm - $ 10 // Get tickets
On 16th October 2012, BEAM// (Bristol Exchange of Arts & Music) are bringing a slice of Bristol’s burgeoning street level art, music and film to Brooklyn. BEAM// will be running a day and night event at the Knitting Factory in Williamsburg, featuring world renowned street artists Inkie and Nick Walker, music from Scott Hendy (Malachai/Boca 45), plus the legendary Bristol DJ and long time NY resident DJ Milo. There will also be representation from Brooklyn in the form of DJ Ursula 1000 and live acts The Good People and Archie Pelago.
The event will include film screenings, visuals and art to give a flavour of the creative output from Bristol, UK featuring work from award winning music documentary filmmaker Mark Kidel and a selection of music promos and visuals from John Minton 
Much like Brooklyn itself, the city of Bristol has long been regarded as a place of innovation, radical creativity, and independence. From the street art of Banksy, Nick Walker, Will Barras, Inkie to the groundbreaking, distinctive and original music of  Massive Attack and Portishead,  and the de-facto ‘home’ of movements such as dubstep and drum & bass, this is all drawn from a multi cultural and fiercely independent city. Bristol is recognised the world over as a leader, not a follower in original and underground culture. Full program and profiles are here :Bristol Exchange of Arts & Music and Watershed present

Mail, Maps & Motion - Review

Here’s a review of the recent Mail, Maps & Motion event at Temple Meads, Bristol.

See No Evil went off with a bang last weekend with Mail, Maps and Motion, a large-scale night of music, film and projections curated by Watershed’s Clare Reddington (Director, iShed and the Pervasive Media Studio) and Mark Cosgrove (Head of Programme). When all 2,500 of the audience had filed away, the equipment was packed up and the Passenger Shed was restored to full working car park status, Clare sat down to reflect on an incredible night…..
