”Musical weirdo and visionary” Beatie Wolfe is an artist who has beamed her music into space, been appointed a UN Women role model for innovation, and held an acclaimed solo exhibition of her ‘world first’ album designs at the Victoria & Albert Museum.
Named by WIRED Magazine as one of “22 people changing the world,” Wolfe is at the forefront of pioneering new formats for music that bridge the physical and digital, which include: a 3D theatre 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 an ‘anti-stream’ from the quietest room on earth and space beam via the Big Bang horn. Wolfe is also the co-founder of a “profound” (The Times) research project looking at the power of music for people living with dementia.
She recently spoke, performed and showed her work The Nobel Prize Summit and was introduced by the Nobel Prize laureate Robert Woodrow Wilson.
Beatie Wolfe’s V&A album exhibition “The Art of Music in the Digital Age” was named as the highlight of London Design Festivals by BA’s High Life Magazine.
Additional features include Wallpaper Magazine, BBC World Service, FT Weekend Magazine, Forbes, Design Milk, Icon and Creative Review
Wolfe’s latest design is the Raw Space Chamber, which will allow visitors to enter an anechoic chamber and immerse themselves in a ceremonial listening experience, while live AR animations bring the album’s artwork and lyrics to life in real- time. Come hear the sound of silence, a blast from the past, and the music launched into deepest space.
The Barbican recently commissioned a documentary about Beatie Wolfe’s pioneering work titled “Orange Juice for the Ears: From Space Beams to Anti-Streams”. THE RAWEST SOUND ENTERS THE RAWEST SPACE
Following its launch from the quietest room in the world, Beatie’s third album Raw Space was beamed into space with the Nobel Laureate Dr Robert Wilson, via the historic Holmdel Horn Antenna, which was used to prove the validity of the Big Bang theory link to 3 min movie on the absolutely fascinating project.
Beatie Wolfe creates innovative physical and digital musical formats, incorporating data, themes, and locations which push the boundaries of what music is and how it communicates. Her piece “From Green to Red”, hosted at the London Design Biennale, visualised the CO2 concentration in the atmosphere. Recently, she was the subject of a Barbican-commissioned documentary, and gave a TEDMED talk about the power of music and its core value to humanity. In January 2020, Wolfe received the She Rocks Innovator award alongside Suzi Quatro, Gloria Gaynor, Linda Perry and Tal Wilkenfield.
