BCMG Music & Maths Festival Feat. BEAST
BEAST FEaST 2022: Resonances
June 28 - July 1
Bramall Music Building

Over the past four decades Birmingham ElectroAcoustic Sound Theatre (BEAST) has become one of the leading systems for the presentation of electronic music in the world, and a catalyst for innovation in the field. While never losing its roots as a champion of acousmatic composition (music for loudspeakers alone) and an innovator in the creation of immersive sonic experiences in concert, it has developed into a platform for a wide variety of sound-based art in various styles and genres.

Join us for four days of music, ideas and dialogue to celebrate 40 years of BEAST and the 70th Birthday of BEAST founder Jonty Harrison. The festival will feature artists involved with BEAST throughout its history, the world premiere of a special commission by Jonty Harrison, as well as music from long-time friends of BEAST Robert Normandeau and Simon Emmerson.
