Announces live dates and festival appearances

Beehive installation moves to Kew Gardens this summer

Listen here.

BE•ONE have announced details of two new live shows. The music project put together to soundtrack Wolfgang Buttress’ incredible, award-winning beehive installation will perform music from their recently released debut album at Sonos Studio in Shoreditch and at the first ever Blue Dot Festival at Jodrell Bank. They play an already announced show in London’s Fulham Palace as part of the inaugural Caught by the River Thames festival.

BE•ONE play:May 11 – Sonos London E2 (very limited number of free tickets available in advance)
July 24  – Blue Dot festival, Jodrell Bank
August 6th Caught by the River Thames, Fulham Palace
September 4th End of the Road festival

The original beehive installation moves to a permanent home in Kew Gardens this summer:

The album was recorded by musicians Kev Bales and Tony Foster – a duo known for working with Spritualized, Julian Cope, Dave Gahan and Mark Lanegan, amongst many others. Other musicians featured on the record include Jason PierceYouth, cellist Deidre Bencsik, vocalist Camille Buttress and Amiina (the string section regularly used by Sigur Ros). The recording sessions saw musicians improvising in the key of C along to a live audio feed of beehive sounds. Piano, Mellotron and lap steel were overdubbed later. The result is a unique piece of truly meditative music.
