The BEAM Festival presents BEAM NIGHT, a special one-off taster event held at café OTO, starting at 8 o’clock on the 4th of April.

The acts all use unusual and/or homemade interfaces to perform.

Atau Tanaka & Adam Parkinson play iPhones as sensitive, handheld controllers.

Bruno Zamborlin performs café OTO’s wall – possibly for the first time?! – with his invention, Mogees, which read gestural language on any surface.

Marco Donnarumma’s Music for Flesh is a visceral sensor performance using his instrument system Xth sense, which has just been named “the world’s most innovative new musical instrument” and awarded First Prize at the Guthman Musical Instrument Competiton in Atlanta (http://bit.ly/yiHBu6).

Tom Bugs (maker of Bugbrand synth products) appears in a rare performance using his Modular synths and also sets up a mini-installation for the night.

The beguilingly creative Leafcutter John conjures up soundscapes with his new explorations in light and sound.


This Saturday the 10th of March! A pre-BEAM daytime event at Brunel to give you a taste of the festival: table top installations and demos, workshops and impromptu performances. Come along to BEAM DAY and see what all the fuss is about!
