Community loops is a team of project coordinators that offer fun, accessible and intuitive activities that engage the wider community through the connectivity of electronic music making. We believe that through the connectivity of electronic music making, no matter how ‘unskilled’ or ‘unmusical’ a person may feel, they can still be included as a valid part of a music making process. Alternatively no matter how skilled and musical an individual may feel, for a truly healthy creative output they should not be left ostricised from experimental, playful and unintentional music making.

With the multitude of possibilities modern electronics present to music, accommodating individual preferences becomes increasingly specific and a greater fluidity in connecting more diverse groups is easier. The Western view of music can be commercial, celebrity dominated and technically elite, whereas many Eastern cultures with healthier communities prioritize aspects such as inclusion, participation and oral traditions long lived through their simplicity and sentiment. Community Loops promotes values more central to the socially and personally beneficial elements of music making, through the appreciation of simplistic musical forms, cooperation before aesthetic and the adaptability and possibilities offered by large combinations of electronics.

This is why the Community loops team collaborate their knowledge and equipment to bring together a large electronic music set ups for people to partake in. The joy of electronics applied to intuitive music making is that every sound becomes a valid part of the process. The sounds become relative to the process, for where one sound seems out of place, it is then integrated into the music through adaption by the series of music devices.

Community Loops is running a regular open studio at The Synergy Centre, every Sunday from 2-6. The project seeks to collaborate with its audience by inviting the Brighton community to contribute to a collaborative piece of music.

The Brighton Synergy Centre, located on Brighton’s West Street, is a community arts venue designed to offer affordable creative space to any organisation working towards a positive, conscious-minded, socially inclusive and environmentally friendly society.

A 500 capacity venue, divided into two rooms of 350 and 150, is currently available for hire both mid-week and weekends. We are working to bring the larger (1200 capacity) venue online in time for the New Year.

Our aim is to use surpluses from weekend events to subsidise smaller, midweek events and activities.  Community-minded groups and individuals who wish to showcase their work, build networks and engage young or marginalised people in society, promote sustainability and support those taking a more active role in producing local art and culture are invited to host weekday and evening activities at the centre.

Such events will include cultural and arts events, workshops, debates, charitable activity, community outreach programmes, educational training programmes, mindfulness, drug and alcohol awareness campaigns and the promotion of Non-Governmental Organisation activities and projects.

The Centre operates very much on a ‘Do-It-Yourself’ ethos, so we welcome participation and involvement from the community to help develop the Centre and insure it meets community needs. To find out about different ways to get involved, click here.
