SOUND//SPACE our pop-up store and events programme at V22 Summer Club (London, UK) during
the months of May to July has now come to a close, however SoundFjord is now considering setting
up a physical and/or online store for sound art, exploratory and experimental music, which also
supports those artists and performers whose work slips between the genre gaps.
SoundFjord's focus is to support artists - and those that explore and challenge their practices - and
encourage an audience for such work, so the idea would be to work towards running a store that
would have stock and also have events - both inspirational and educational - as our tenure at V22
provided. If you'd like to hear what we got up to, a selection of our performances are available to listen
to at The Wire: thewire.co.uk/articles/9448
Many of you who visited enjoyed the experience of being in a physical space with artefacts -
handmade, limited edition and one-offs; cassettes, CDs, records, dongles, other multi-media products.
We'd very much like to work with this positivity, and if possible we'd like to improve on what what we
achieved at V22, so it's be great to get feedback from anyone who visited the shop, or our online
presence. We'd be really interested to hear about your thoughts on how the store looked, the quality
of its stock; the helpfulness of the staff; and the quality/diversity of our events programme. For your
reference, details of our events are at the SOUND//SPACE website: sound-space-store.co.uk and
detailed information on our events in-store during this time are archived at SoundFjord's past events
webpage: soundfjord.org/eventsperformance.htm#538568251 (Scroll down towards bottom of
Going forward, we'd also like to hear any further ideas you may have as to what, as performers and
as audience/consumers, you'd like to see (happen) in-store/online. Would it be an online presence for
those of you not able to visit the UK? Would it be downloads as well as physical media? Would it be
in-store events? Would it be label showcases? What about talks and/or readings, workshops and
masterclasses? Other ideas/observations...?
Please email us at listening [at] sound [-] space [-] store [.] co [.] uk if you have a spare moment.
We look forward to hearing your thoughts.
