Call for entries
Deadline: 30 March 2012

The BEAM (Brunel Electronic and Analogue Music) Festival, now in its second year, is looking for your work to show at the festival, held 22-24 June 2012 at Brunel University. As our mission is to explore the physical in electronic music, we’re interested in anything interactive: be it beautiful, intense, playful, dramatic, mesmerising, innovative or surprising!

Your work should fit into one of three categories:

BEAM OPEN SPACE: installations & demonstrations
BEAM PERFORMANCES: gig-ready performances
BEAM AV GALLERY: AudioVisual presentations for the BEAM media kiosk

All proposals should refer to the broad themes of music & technology, interactivity, electronic or electro-acoustic music with a live or interactive element, music produced through unusual interfaces or DIY instruments.

We will repeat last year’s successful BEAM Bursaries available for the 2012 edition, this time dedicated to UK-based Open Call artists, supported by the PRS for Music Foundation.
