Thanks, Fireworks Party Memories - & beyond...

So, 'go reborn' has popped-down - for now. It really has been the most momentous experience for all involved, and the last night fling was a real eye-popping thrill ride of great tunes, wild dancing, awesome fireworks and the ceremonial dismantling of everything we had built and created to continue our organic, evolutionary, revolutionary pop-up ride.
Just check out our ever-growing 'Friends' list (something that is constantly being added to) that is up-to-date with all the artists, musicians and thrill-seekers involved with 'go reborn'.
The 'go reborn' team is currently underground somewhere very hush-hush planning our next move, so for now you will have to content yourselves with a weekly update on this blog, which will include interviews and updates on 'go reborn' artists, other exhibitions of note, things we think you need to do and see, and of course 'go reborn' news.
Again, 'go reborn' would like to give a big thank-you to ALL the people who popped-up and really got involved with what 'go reborn' was doing over the festival. Without your constant support and enthusiasm we would, of course, be mere shells of meaninglessness - so thanks.
The 'go reborn' blog continues weekly - will keep you all posted.
Thanks to Fleur, KP and Dave Anderson for photos

We'd like to mark our momentous time at the Venue Studios with a mind-bogglingly brilliant party, 'go reborn' style...

Open Ear Music

High up here in the turrets of 'go reborn' I can see the space morphing and changing as it has continuously over the past three weeks. And there is a consistent eclectic mix of tunes getting us through the days of art and crafts and inspiration. The 'go reborn' collective finds music such a key player in life in general, and this space overlooking Auld Reekie lends itself so well to a booming sound system or a calming nu-folk pick-me-up.

For much of our time here, we have been lucky enough to be involved with those fine folk at Open Ear Music. Their live stream of up-and-coming and established local talent has fitted in perfectly with our theories on supporting artists and designers in our immediate vicinity. Open Ear are famed for their customised radio stations which was the perfect plan for our pop-up panorama.

Open Ear are great supporters and disseminators of local labels; perhaps their most exciting conection this summer (apart from the 'go reborn' one!) is with record label Surface Pressure, essentially the band FOUND, who had such a hit with their weird and wonderful Cybraphon project at the Festival - a live and emotionally volatile musical instrument maelstrom that had folk weeping for more.

You have precisely four days until the huge and momentous firework party at 'go reborn', with which we shall close our doors and disappear into the dark streets of Edinburgh's underworld to dream up more amazing and mind-changing events for your delectation.
