All Points: North - Acoustic music in beautiful places
A series of online music videos promoting local, emerging and established musical talent against the backdrop of venues of historical and cultural significance across Belfast City, recently launched online.
All Points: North, showcases some of NI’s foremost digital content creators, musicians and electronic producers filmed against the backdrop of historic buildings located across Belfast, with a particular focus on North Belfast.
Supported by Arts Council of Northern Ireland and Department for Communities Organisations Emergency Funding programme, these short films celebrate the past, present and future of the history within the buildings, as well as the creative talent of some of Northern Ireland’s most promising musicians.
All Points: North was developed as a roaming geographical-focused music project with the ‘All Points’ title adapting to reflect locations. It is hoped this project marks the start of a series of online video performances showcasing artists alongside built heritage across Northern Ireland.
The project is an artist-led collaboration managed by BEAMA (Belfast Electronic Arts & Music Academy). The team is made up of digital artists and creative arts managers from Northern Ireland; featuring singer songwriter Anthony Toner; electronic producer, DJ and label owner Timmy Stewart and creative arts director John Walls, joined by videographers including Ross McClean and Paul Mc Parland.
