bradford sound artists

A place to talk about how you use sound as art/performance. Or to ask questions so that you can start. A resource sharing opportunity; to read, watch films together, and listen. We can organise field trips, like doing location recording around Bradford District.

We meet every third Wednesday of the month at Fuse Art Space.

We are a grassroots, DIY collective experimenting with sound & sound making electronics in an informal sharing and learning environment. Beginners with no experience but an interest are especially welcomed.

We primarily run make-and-do sessions – think knit & natter but with circuits.

Meetings are on the first Saturday of the month at Fuse Art Space.


Saturday, 4th June 2022, 3.00 - ?.??pm

We are having a grand opening and you are invited!

We will soon be launching a continuing series of free/low-cost activities and resources, each of which you learn about on the day.

Activities like:

  • Give-it-a try instrument library
  • All-abilities & any-artform jamming (like open mic)
  • Peer-led workshops

This event is FREE to attend & participate.

Taster Workshops // DJ Sets // Live music by the Kathy & John Jazz Duo // The Collector on vinyl // Live open jam // Exciting Bar stocked with local & exotic Drink and Snacks

We ran a pilot at FUSE Art Space in Rawson Place, Bradford, BD13QQ.

These workshops are entirely free and we welcome your participation and collaboration in whatever way you choose. You can bring instruments or just yourselves. The participants will mould the shape of the music and the way the workshops develop.

After Christmas we will review the pilot and take the next steps which include plans to initiate the workshops across the district with different leaders.

The space is not very warm - please wrap up!
Tea and coffee making facilities are available. The space has a single toilet. We start setting up from 1pm, do come early to help if you like.

Covid: Should the rules change around Covid we will aim to notify before or early on the day of the events.
