We’ll be bringing on board a load of our favourite musicians from in and around Basildon to create some mind-blowing loops. We’ll be streaming these artist sessions live from our Facebook to inspire creativity, promote involvement in the project and give you an insight into the fantastic local bands and artists the town has to offer. 

So keep an eye on our Facebook for those live streaming events!

We’ll also be running a batch of sessions specifically for people with special needs so that everyone, no matter their ability, can get involved with the project.

About TIME 

We are TIME – Therapy In Musical Expression. A Basildon based music service that work with people of all ages and abilities, but have a particular focus within disability and mental health. No matter what age, ability or background, we believe that everyone holds artistic value – and we seek to encourage and enable the expression of their unique, creative voice.

About Strange Pill

We are audio visual artists duo Strange Pill (Ben Hardy / Zahara Muñoz-Vicens) working on this pioneering project with TIME. We see music as collage – we use filmed live performance as the individual “cutups”, to bring the visual narratives of sounds to the foreground of the musical experience, and with this we create participatory linear & non-linear interactive pieces for the audience to take part and follow their own story.
