Who’s going to be at the Beautiful Octopus Club … School of Noise

Ever since I first met School of Noise almost a year ago now I’ve loved what they do and how they get people of all ages interested in sound. They really are an amazing group and the work that they do in exploring and experimenting with sound is awesome.

I’m very happy that they’re going to be with us at the Beautiful Octopus Club this Friday (9th of September) at the Royal Festival Hall from 7pm until midnight. Full details for the event are here, and you can find out more about the School of Noise at their page at Palm Sounds, and at their own site which has details of all their upcoming events.

Hope to see you on Friday!

It’s going to be a busy week this week, here’s what I’ve got on my list for this week

There’s a lot happening this week, so I thought it would be worth talking about what’s coming up so that you don’t miss anything. Here’s what I’ve got on my list for this week.

  • Tomorrow, the 6th: Fluxpad launches – I posted about Fluxpad the other day and you can expect it tomorrow, which is great as I think we’ve been waiting for this a long time.
  • Wednesday, the 7th: Apple launches the iPhone 7, and maybe we’ll see them say goodbye to the venerable headphone jack. Who knows. I’m sure all will be revealed on Wednesday.
  • Friday, the 9th: Roland have a lot in store apparently. According to them they’ve got 30 new products and services to tell us about on 909 day!
  • Friday, the 9th: Of course what’s more is that on Friday the 9th we’ll have the Beautiful Octopus Club and SoundLab at the Royal Festival Hall. If you can come along then I’d love to see you there, and do say hello.

So it’s a busy week, will it be good news or sadness on Wednesday? Who knows! Either way you can celebrate or commiserate with us on Friday at the Beautiful Octopus Club at the Festival Hall.

Who’s going to be at the Beautiful Octopus Club on Friday …

I’ve mentioned it before, but expect to hear a fair amount about the Beautiful Octopus Club over the next few days and we count down to Friday the 9th of September. In the next few days I wanted to mention a few of the people you can expect to see at the BOC this year on the fifth floor of the Royal Festival Hall.

This year we have a bigger SoundLab presence than any before and so much to try out and play with that you’re going to want a lot more than one evening to do it in. But BOC will only be there for one night, on the 9th. So please do come along.

For today I want to let you know about one of the great companies we’re going to have with us on Friday the 9th. I plan to tell you about them one at a time, but by the end of the week you’ll know exactly who to expect.

Let’s start with someone amazing. On Friday we’ll have Ableton with us showing Push 2 and making some great sounds. Of course the mobile music world is no stranger to Ableton as we now rely so heavily on Link for so much/

It’s great that we’ll have Ableton with us for the Beautiful Octopus Club this year. The fifth floor of the Festival Hall is going to be a great place to be on Friday. Come along, try stuff out and play. I’m looking forward to see you there.

It’s not long to wait now …

I’ve posted about it before and you’ll be hearing a lot more about it soon enough. The Beautiful Octopus club is coming on the 9th of September. I posted about it here before, and if you’re interested in showing your music technology there, read this then get in touch.

If you’re planning to come along then please say hi!

It’s 4 weeks to go until the Beautiful Octopus Club!

I posted about this a little while ago, but now it’s coming up very fast indeed. As I said the last time I posted about it, I’ve been involved in Heart n Soul’s Beautiful Octopus Club for a few years now. This year the club is bigger and better than ever, so if you can make it along I think you’ll have a brilliant night out.

Every year Heart n Soul takes over the Royal Festival Hall on the South Bank and turns it into the most amazing club night for people with learning disabilities. This year the Beautiful Octopus Club is on the 9th of September from 7pm until midnight and it is open to all. There’s no tickets, no entrance free, and everyone is welcome.

This year there’s loads going on over 3 floors with 6 stages, 2 dance floors, 20 acts performing, 9 DJ crews, 11 Taking Part areas and on the 5th floor there’s going to be the biggest SoundLab ever.

 

If you’d like to know more about it then feel to get in touch with me.

In just over a month I’ll be at the Beautiful Octopus Club, and I want you there too

You may well have heard me talking about this event in the past. I’ve been involved in Heart n Soul’s Beautiful Octopus Club for quite a few years now. It’s an amazing event and as a part of it I try and bring some of the best and most interesting music technologies to the event to show them to the public.

Well this year the Beautiful Octopus Club is bigger and better than ever and I’d really love you to be a part of it!

Every year Heart n Soul takes over the Royal Festival Hall on the South Bank and turns it into the most amazing club night for people with learning disabilities. This year the Beautiful Octopus Club is on the 9th of September from 7pm until midnight and it is open to all. There’s no tickets, no entrance free, and everyone is welcome.

The event normally attracts between 2,500 and 3,000 visitors so it’s a great way to engage audiences you haven’t met and to generate PR and social content.

This year there’s loads going on over 3 floors with 6 stages, 2 dance floors, 20 acts performing, 9 DJ crews, 11 Taking Part areas and on the 5th floor there’s going to be the biggest SoundLab ever and I’d love you to be a part of it.

With just over a month to go there are some great companies taking part on the 9th, but there are still a few spaces left.

What I’m looking for is:

  • Engaging interactive experience for people visiting the club
  • An experience that encourages people to continue their music making after the event
  • Ideally experiences that can be delivered over headphones, as it’s going to be very busy and very noisy!

I really want you to be a part of it and would love to hear any ideas you have for being involved. Also if you know anyone else who might like to know about our event then please feel free to share this page!

If you’re interested please contact me as possible and we can start to talk about what’s possible. Contact details here.
