About me

Pioneering singer-songwriter Beatie Wolfe - an artist who has beamed her music into space, been appointed a UN role model for innovation and held an acclaimed solo exhibition at the V&A Museum - is recording her next record with award-winning producer Linda Perry. Named by WIRED as one of "22 people changing the world,” Beatie Wolfe is at the forefront of pioneering new formats for music that bridge the physical and digital, which include: a 3D vinyl for the palm of your hand; a wearable record jacket - cut by Bowie/Hendrix’s tailor out of fabric woven with Wolfe’s music - and most recently the world's first live 360 AR stream from the quietest room on earth. Wolfe is also the co-founder of a “profound” (The Times) research project looking at the power of music for people living with dementia.

Documentary Commission

Barbican

  • ‘Musical weirdo and visionary’ (Vice) Beatie Wolfe presents an experiential evening of film, live performance and conversation. In Oliver Sacks’s Musicophilia he writes ‘Music can lift us out of depression or move us to tears — it is a remedy, a tonic, orange juice for the ear.’ Taking that as inspiration, Wolfe explores what music can look like in the digital age, asking what has been lost, what can be reclaimed and what remains to be updated and innovated. Following the premiere of a documentary about her work (directed by Ross Harris), Wolfe will perform live and take part in a Q&A. A singer-songwriter of raw acoustic indie rock that channels Leonard Cohen and Elliott Smith, Wolfe also pioneers new formats for music. Reuniting digital and physical in retro-future ways she has created a theatre in the palm of your hand, a wearable record ‘jacket’, the ‘anti-stream’ from the world's quietest room, and beamed her record into space using the Holmdel Horn Antenna.
