Bowers & Wilkins sponsor Accidental Powercut series of gigs.

Accidental Powercut Logo

To celebrate the launch of our P5 headphones we’re very proud to be sponsoring Accidental Powercut, a series of intimate, acoustic gigs in Soho’s atmospheric chapel, The House of St Barnabas.

Each concert will be recorded binaurally. This means that the recordings will capture the ambience of the environment as well as the music so that when listening to the recordings through headphones, the listener will feel in the midst of the concert. The recordings will be donated to the audio collection of the British Library.

Hosted by Blacktronica’s Charlie Dark, each night also features cutting edge musicians including Polarbear, Fiona Bevan, Tinashe and Talvin Singh.

The three concerts take place on the first Thursday of every month until September. Tomorrow’s concert features Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, Jon McCleery, Speakers Corner Quartet and Polarbear.

The second concert, on the 5th August, features Sound of Rum, Ghostpoet and Fiona Bevan and the final concert, on the 2nd September, features Talvin Singh, Corey Mwamba and Tinashe.

They promise to be extraordinary musical events that allow attendees to rediscover the element that lies at the very heart of music, True Sound. Guests who attend the concerts will be able to access the highlights of the shows as downloads from Society of Sound at a later date this summer alongside Society of Sound members and customer who purchse and register our P5 Mobile headphones.
