Mix the City: An audio visual platform for Belfast
In 2019, British Council and Belfast City Council came together to create Mix the City - an online interactive mixing website where music lovers and budding DJs around the globe got the chance to sample Belfast’s distinct sights and sounds and create their own compositions.
Mix the City Belfast involved a collaboration of 95 artists, musicians and creators in total, with footage curated by award-winning artist and composer Hannah Peel, and produced by Bounce Culture.
The participating musicians included Arco String Quartet, Úna Monaghan, Ulster Orchestra, Steve Davis, No Oil Paintings, Joseph Leighton, Die Hexen, Katie Richardson & Open House Choir, 1st Old Boys Band, Kaidi Tatham (DJ), John O’Neill (The Undertones), Willie Drennan and Duke Special and Hannah Peel.
This interactive platform had already been rolled out by the British Council in 19 other cities, including Tel Aviv, Afghanistan, Berlin, Glasgow, Mumbai, and Moscow, with big acts such as Django Django and Ghostpoet taking part.
