BEAMS ▌Sonic Projections

 BEAMS has a compilation record released on the IFAR music label:

The Boreal Electroacoustic Music Society (BEAMS) is a non-profit society dedicated to the promotion and production of sound art, experimental music and new media. Its membership consists of professional musicians, composers and performance artists from diverse backgrounds driven to create a voice for sound orientated art in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and beyond

For 33 years, BEAMS' philosophy is that of inclusion. This has allowed us to explore a wide range of artistic expression through our events, which have ranged from improvisers, modular synth music, noise music, electroacoustic music, interactive art and to video art. It is always interesting!

BEAMS is intent on fostering local fledgling and established artists through the sponsoring of new original works.
