Electronic music production conference – EMPRO May 27-28th


Festival of Nature events throughout June

My name is Christina and I work with the Natural History Consortium, a collaborative charity on a mission to engage people with nature. We host a variety of events across the year in the Bristol and Bath area and our biggest is the Festival of Nature, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. Across June we’ll be hosting a range of activities, talks and sessions (many of which are free!) for people of all ages and interests.
One of these events which we think may be of interest to your group is Composition and Conservation: Behind the Wildlife Score. We are delighted to be hosting this special evening with award-winning wildlife film composer and conductor William Goodchild. This spectacular event on Tuesday 13 June will be a musical celebration of William’s 100 commissions for natural history programming, including for major broadcasters Netflix and BBC. Dr Simon Bell, staff producer and award-winning director at BBC Studios Natural History Unit, will be in conversation with William exploring his inspiration, process, and the role of music in natural history film production. This event also welcomes special guest, James Reed, the renowned natural history director best known for his work directing Oscar winning documentary ‘My Octopus Teacher’. James will also talk about and show clips from his latest production ‘Chimp Empire’.
More information about the event with how to book can be found here.
We hope this will be of interest to your group and we’d be very grateful if you could share the news with your network and members.
Thank you very much and we hope to see you there!
Kind regards

We are delighted to announce a special Bmin Monthly Meeting at Bristol Beacon on Wednesday May 11th 2022 from 12pm till 2pm, 3rd floor Terrace Bar.

The meeting will focus on all aspects of Music Collaboration, with guest speaker Judge Singh of RSVP Bhangra.

Judge has been heavily involved in a cross-genre collaboration project in the past year with over 18 International artists from the US, UK, Europe, and India to create his debut album ‘NASCENT’.
Highlights from the album include songs from the wonderful Sheema Mukerjee (Transglobal Underground), SHIN (of DCS), Shruti Jain (Mumbai) and Jazz Delorean from Tankus The Henge. It also includes remixes from the amazing Dr Meaker, DJ Swami, and DJ Drez.
