Be’s One is a collaboration between musicians Kev Bales and Tony Foster and features the talents of Jason Pierce, Youth, cellist Deidre Bencsik, vocalist Camille Buttress an the Amiina string section. The four-track album “imagines the sound of British summertime as heard by one of the most important members of the animal kingdom - the bee” and it will be performed live for the first time at Nottingham Arts Theatre in February.

Across two shows in Nottingham, the album will be recreated in full 7.2 sound in an installation specially created for the stage by artist Wolfgang Buttress, who is responsible for British Pavilion which Be’s album soundtracks, alongside Squint Opera and Hoare Lea.
