‘BE’ will play their critically acclaimed album ‘ONE’ plus preview new material recorded with the Nottingham honey bees and St. Mary’s Church Choir. The band BE was formed as a collaboration between artist Wolfgang Buttress, musicians-Tony Foster, Kev Bales, Deirdre Bencsik, Camille Buttress, scientist Dr. Martin Bencsik and 40,000 honey bees. Collectively they created a soundscape for the multi award winning sculpture called The Hive that is now sited at the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew. The soundscape was released as One to much critical acclaim on Caught by the Rivers innovative record label Rivertones.
An immersive experience
The sounds and vibrations of over 40,000 honeybees will be streamed live into St. Mary’s Church from a local beehive in Brackenhurst, Nottinghamshire. A state of the art 3D surround sound system has been commissioned for these performances. Visual imagery from the Hive project will be projected onto the musicians and the Church.
Wolfgang is working with renowned perfumiers and candle makers Haeckels to create a installation which will illuminate the performance and fill the space with the smell and essence of the church gardens.
These special ltd edition candles will be available to buy online at and from St. Mary’s Church.
