Brilliant Corners has since become a staple in London's music scene, playing host to a medley of local and international selectors whilst guest enjoy in Japanese delicacies in a downtempo environment. Was this always the aim when you set out or did this grow organically through trial and error?
Trial and error. Initially we had no aim other than putting a good sound system in. We had no experience in the mechanics of running a bar or restaurant and had to learn everything from scratch. Fortunately, we were supported by lots of people with shared values and their help allowed us to stay open whilst we figured things out. The Japanese food offering was initially made possible by the work of our friend Kay Suzuki who we already knew from the dancefloor at Beauty & the Beat. And in a space that’s all about music, Japanese food is a no-brainer. It’s light, healthy, lends itself well to sharing, and perhaps most importantly, it’s relatively odorless so there’s no random smells later on the dancefloor.
This is Brilliant Corners debut at Farr Festival. What do you envisage of the festival when you think of it?
We are not sure what to expect of the festival but looking forward to being in the middle of a forest listening to music all day and night with likeminded people.
The Brilliant Corners stage at Farr Festival will be housed within in a yurt, creating an intimate and inviting atmosphere for dancers. Tell us more about what people can look forward and expect at the stage?
Hearing sets that take you on a journey, played in a way that makes you wonder what’s coming next.
What music can people expect at the BC stage?
All types of music, all genres. Music which is inspired, and is inspiring to listen to. Music with a message. Music that’s greater than the sum of its parts. Good music, played at the right time.
