Brisbane Electronic Music 1979 to 2014: The BNE Event

For lovers of Brisbane Music and Culture this is one
of the greatest things to happen here for ages!

This has been a massive undertaking, 
but an incredible journey of discovery. 
Brisbane has always been a unique and 
sometimes challenging place for artistic endeavor, 
particularly with respect to our city’s social, political 
and geographic context and BNE captures the spirit of true 
innovation in the modern art form that is electronic music. 
There are some wonderful stories in BNE,
 but most importantly there is a lot of amazing music.


Luminary Brisbane electronic acts reform to celebrate
the city’s electronic music achievements
The BNE Project celebrates 35 years of independent
electronic music production in Brisbane from 1979 to 2014,
through the release of a new book and music archive featuring
140 bands & artists and over 260 tracks.

Dennis Remmer – co owner of Brisbane record label
Transmission Communications (Trans:Com)  and will be launched
at the Brisbane Powerhouse on Saturday, 6 September 2014.
The BNE event features live performances from The Megamen,
Vision Four 5, Soma Rasa, and Boxcar, supported by DJ Jen-E;

It was a terrific night. I discovered that the event was on through your blog, Bob, and got some tickets. My 14-year-old son is into electronic music and he was up the front for every minute. Have a couple of photos if interested, but not great. Cheers, Rob.

With only 2 years in which to track down artists and do the research it is likely that we did not include absolutely every artist that has ever produced electronic music in Brisbane. However, it is for this reason that BNE will have future editions.
