Bellingham Electronic Arts Festival 2013 (BEAF)

Curated and run by a small group of audio fanatics and professionals, BEAF is a multi-style multi-venue festival that brings together musicians, artists, and thinkers in an exploratory celebration of arts technology. With our usual shoe-string budget further challenged by the current economy we are reaching out to supporters to help the festival thrive as strong as ever.

About BEAF

Now celebrating its tenth year, the Bellingham Electronic Arts Festival (BEAF) features a compelling roster of international, national, and regional artists presenting and performing a wide variety of electronic music, visual art, and installation art. Electroacoustic composition, electropop, sound art, electrojazz, experimental hip-hop, noise, electronic dance, and ambient music are presented both in separate showcases and side by side. Taking place in downtown Bellingham and on the campus of Western Washington University, BEAF also includes lectures, workshops, and panel discussions with leading artists and scholars. Nestled on North Puget Sound between Seattle and Vancouver, BC, Bellingham is a beautiful place to experience a unique festival designed to open eyes, ears, and minds.

When you support BEAF, you support:

· community enrichment - BEAF is unique in its particular blend of genres, venues and intellectual discourse. This healthy cross-pollination has positive effects in Bellingham and throughout the wider music and art communities.

· the arts - BEAF’s sonic and visual artists deserve as much support as we can give them!

· Bellingham’s local music - we take pride in presenting local artists alongside international talent, and we provide opportunities for non-traditional local artists to shine.

Our first hope is to raise enough money to keep the festival in its present vibrant grassroots form. Our expenses include, but are not limited to: artist fees (including housing and travel), venue fees, gallery rentals, staff, equipment rentals, advertising (flyers, web, etc.).

We would love to raise enough money to support our bigger goals:artist grants/commissions, workshops/master classes for young composers, sunset headphone concerts and other creative sound presentations, music production master-classes with known electronic artists and composers, acquisition of high-profile artists for showcases and workshops.

BEAF will take place April 25-28, 2013.
