NME Festival - Sea of Sound Nights!

The Boreal Electroacoustic Music Society (BEAMS) in conjunction with New Music Edmonton’s Edmonton New Music Festival will present two evenings of performance on November 15th and 16th at Bohemia (10217-97 Street) that somehow relate to the two themes Improvise/Synthesize and MediaX.

The Sea of Sound Festival3 is an event that celebrates the symphony of sounds happening around us that we take for granted in our daily lives. We hope it acts like a 12,000 km oil change and tune-up for the ears, re-tuning the way we listen and hear the world around us. BEAMS wishes to explore this theme by presenting works that present the audience, participants or performers with new or innovative approaches to sound art performance.

At the NME Festival – Sea of Sound nights, BEAMS members will be performing at Bohemia on November 15, 2012 and November 16, 2012.
