A pop-up record store and community hub for creatives, makers and enthusiasts, celebrating physical media and instilling the necessity for, and vitality of, independent thinking, publishing and the handmade.
SOUND//SPACE is a specifically built unit within the huge V22 Workspace in Bermondsey. The philosophy is simple—to celebrate and instill the importance in allthat is independently published and hand-made.
The space is a record store, project space and a locus for conversation across genre (from experimental music, sound art and field recording to free jazz, electronica and exploratory music) where SOUND//SPACE showcases the most creative individuals and labels within the industry. SOUND//SPACE contextualises such work, highlighting the culture and importance of independent publishing and self-releasing via aprogramme of events including sonic scavenger hunts, (audio) screenings, live performances, talks and workshops and by hosting artists and labels in residence.
All are welcome—the specialist, the geek, the generalist to the store. Feel free to peruse the store a while, listen to some releases at our listening stations (for vinyl, CD and cassette); marvel at the variety of hand-made andhand-printed releases, screen printed posters, limited editions and special releases that are have available.
There will be daily related performances, talks and workshops.
