Multisensory performance art BE offers the unique amalgamation of the sound of 40,000 real live working honey bees united by pieces performed by renown musicians to create a truly powerful soundscape like no other.
The band BE is the work of artist Wolfgang Buttress and a team of excellent musicians including Tony Foster, Kev Bales, Deirdre Bencsik, Camille Buttress plus the work of scientist Dr. Martin Bencsik and, of course, the dedicated efforts of 40,000 honey bees. The project has taken the form of an exceptional sculpture called The Hive which is situated at the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew and has also been captured as an album entitled One. And now you can see the record being performed live.
A truly amazing immersive experience. The sounds and vibrations of the local working hive housed at Brackenhurst in Nottinghamshire will be streamed live into the fantastic venue using state of the art technology utilising a 3D surround sound system to accompany the compelling visual imagery to create an awe inspiring effect which adds so much to the extremely talented musicians. The performance is not to be missed and the memories will last a lifetime.
Artist Wolfgang Buttress specialises in exciting new ways of understanding space and has worked with perfumers and the candle makers Haeckels to create illuminations which will fill the church with light and scent.
This will be the latest of a series of critically acclaimed events offered by BE. Their past events have included two sell out shows at Nottingham Arts Theatre and appearances at such famous festivals as Blue Dot, Caught By The River, End Of The Road and Glastonbury.
