Chapter, Cardiff

From Now On returns for the third year to fill Cardiff's iconic arts space Chapter with adventurous, fresh and boundary pushing music.


Over three days you will be able to delve into a multi genred soundscape of analogue dance, ancient reimaginings, improvisation, silky balladry and lo-fi punk. We have sourced significant international visitors and some of the most intriguing performers working in Wales and the UK today. As part of the celebrations, Chapter Cinema will be screening a compelling programme of music film and we are proud to present our first artist in residence.


Acts include US experimental pop luminary Julia Holter; surreal electronic trio Stealing Sheep; paradoxical medieval/improv fiddler Laura Cannell; Bas Jan, a new krautpop trio from Serafina Steer; ambient explorer Mark Lyken and minimalist synth duo Happy Meals. Meilyr Jones will be presenting new work informed by his recent exploits in film and theatre that will be made in residence in the week leading up to the festival. Anna Homler & Stephen Warwick present a dance and film led performance of 'Breadwoman' and we'll be hosting a version of Tim Parkinson's anti-opera  'Time With People'. We also have an alternative Valentine's Day orgy of bands and short films curated by Club Foot Foot. In the cinema H. Hawkline soundtracks 'Gwaed Ar Y Ser' and CAM Sinema presents a selection of experimental Welsh music film.


From Now On is produced by Shape and Chapter.
