We organise experimental music, film and art events. We’ve been doing that since 2001. We’re interested in those artforms as ways of thinking, and as useful ways to engage with the world. We’re interested in how music and film can develop through interaction with radical practices in other disciplines: artistic and non-artistic alike.
Some people have occasionally said nice things about our events. (Whilst not getting carried away), we’ve reproduced some of these here, so that you don't have to take our word for everything.
We’ve organised major events with organisations across the UK, incl.: Arnolfini (Bristol), The Arches (Glasgow), British Film Institute (London), Centre for Contemporary Arts (Glasgow), Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design (Dundee), Dundee Contemporary Arts, Glasgow School of Art, ICA (London), Resonance 104.4 FM, The Sage Gateshead, Spike Island (Bristol), Tramway (Glasgow). And we’ve organised events in community spaces and non-arts locations across Scotland, e.g.: an oil tank in Orkney, megastructures in Cumbernauld, autonomous community spaces in Kinning Park and Dundee...
We have and continue to be involved in practices that could variously be described as DIY, experimental, underground or autonomous. We talk about, support and undertake this kind of work, whilst paying for this through public funding. We’ve decided to do this so that we can be involved in things that maybe make a bigger impact, without having to rely on any commercial income. We are not for profit.
