Bristol Beacon presents
Feat. SCALPING & Limbic Cinema
Due to fully reopen in 2023 after a once-in-generation transformation of our performance spaces, ‘Intermission’ provides an exclusive opportunity for audiences to access the physical construction site of Bristol Beacon virtually through immersive 180 degree video and the lens of local music and visual culture.
Combining technologies used for architecture, gaming, and live performance, explore the boundaries between the physical and the virtual, as we reimagine the connection between people, place and music.
Navigate Bristol Beacon’s unseen spaces in the midst of transformation. Otherworldly landscapes are revealed through cinematic camera movements, exploring the building at the mid-point of this landmark project, soundtracked by Scalping’s visceral live techno.
This digital experience premieres Wed 13 Oct, 7pm and will be available on demand afterwards.

Scalping formed in Bristol at the end of 2017 with a desire to pair their hometown’s visionary, off-kilter dance music to the more organic instrumentation you might find in noise-rock and post-punk.
Over the past few years they have become an unmissable live act and gained notoriety as one of the essential, electrifying new bands in the UK following stand out performances at Glastonbury & Green Man Festivals and tours with black midi & Squarepusher. Their recent debut EP ‘FLOOD’, their first release for the forward-thinking Houndstooth label, gained widespread acclaim including CRACK Magazine, NME, The Quietus, Loud & Quiet, Mixmag, The Line of Best Fit and many others.
