Dear all, In a typically British way in the face of adversity a group of us have got together to form an alliance we are calling the Events Revival Alliance. We are attempting to usher in a new ERA in audience experience. This includes myself, Ed Clarke (Clarke Saunders) and Jim Griffiths (Vanguardia) to use acoustics to reconnect people. This is a not for profit venture to see if we can crack the technology to allow an audience to be virtually put back into the venues which lie empty right now. If you’d like to know more, or get involved then join us ! You can find a short film explaining the concept here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gBDILaE5NU&feature=youtu.be and also more on the website : www.eventsrevivalalliance.co.uk
What’s great about this is that is would have multiple benefits for artists, players, venues and audiences and it comes from acoustics innovation in action. Oh and it’s a great story for decarbonising, and mental health and wellbeing. As you can tell we’ve been unashamedly thinking big and flying the flag for what we all do.
Also we are holding a proof of concept experimental event with artist JJ Rosa (date tbc, further notification will be provided via Twitter and Linked In).
