a white and red illustration of a free reed.

Take part in a jam session with Savinder Bual and Elena Blanco for an evening of experimental sound as part of the ‘Free Reed Project’.

Savinder Bual is a visual artist whose work spans sculpture, performance, installation, moving image and animation. In an era of artistic expression that often favours digital formats, in stark contrast, Savinder utilises tangible objects and mechanical inventions as the focal point of her works to highlight their raw, ephemeral nature.

Bristol Beacon audiences may remember her Pineapple Orchestra Project in 2018, a commission which used instruments made from pineapples to ask difficult questions around colonialism and contested histories.
