Hugs Bison

Candy floss, penny arcades, donkey rides, fairgrounds, Punch and Judy; all part of the quintessential British summer.

Memories of a favourite resort, family picnics, romantic walks on the prom, watching a late sunset; all fading, receding into a distant past.

Hugs Bison present B-Side The Seaside, a tour of seaside resorts in July 2015. B-side The Seaside is a series of immersive audio visual performances taking place and rooted in the memories of some of our best-known seaside resorts.

In each town Hugs Bison will be Out & About on one day and performing the next. The Out & About days see them exploring each town, filming and recording, talking to the public and building up resources for the next days performance.

Shaun Blezard of Hugs Bison said ‘We both grew up with regular visits to the seaside as kids and have strong memories of holidays on the beach, going to the fair, eating fish and chips. Many resorts are not doing as well as they used to and we wanted to search for that seaside of our childhood’.

Hugs Bison are a technology driven duo, exploring the frontiers of technology. They are Phil Powell & Shaun Blezard, one a technologist with a passion for music, the other a musician with a passion for technology. They push technology to the limit to create cinematic, improvised soundscapes. Their immersive live performances have gained a reputation for leaving you somewhat dazed — their rich audio and visual improvisations enveloping and disorienting your senses, leaving you with a feeling that the familiar has become somewhat skewed.
