Sunday 17 January 2016, 14:30 to 16:00

Howling Owl Records and Sonic Cathedral discussion

This event has a limited capacity. Please contact Arnolfini box office on 0117 917 2300 to reserve your place.

Discussing their Record Store Day Is Dying project and the Spectre campaign, the two independent record labels look back at a highly eventful 2015 in which their relentless challenging of the music industry has brought them international press. 

Howling Owl

Howling Owl Records is an ever-evolving outpost of music, art and reaction. Beginning with a one off compilation tape in 2011, Howling Owl Records are now at the foreground of Bristol's music scene. From releasing forward thinking music on vinyl, self publishing papers and zines to programming a wide range of shows and exhibitions in off-kilter locations; Howling Owl are a product of the town from where they came, the city where they live, the people they work with and the music industry they work against.

Sonic Cathedral - Nathaniel Cramp

Nathaniel began Sonic Cathedral as a live/club night in London in 2004, before it grew into a record label a couple of years later, starting with a series of 7″s and eventually graduating to full album releases. The label remains a one-man operation and recent releases include acclaimed albums by Spectres, The Vacant Lots, Gulp, Dean Wareham and Lorelle Meets The Obsolete.
