    Who Are We ?

    We are an independent visual broadcast studio based in the heart of Frome, Somerset. From our unique space inside the town’s old fire station building, we have a superb range of technical facilities that we use  for a variety of different projects. Visual radio is an exciting new format that combines both audio and visual mediums to extend the traditional radio experience.

    Our flagship visual radio programme is Soundcheck. Soundcheck is a live music performance netcast. It is video streamed to Facebook as a FREE virtual gig offering the opportunity for musicians to deliver a show to a global audience. Fans can participate in the event from the comfort of their own living room or even on the go. All performances are recorded and remixed and polished with titles to be viewed again or discovered by new fans for the first time.

    Soundcheck is FREE to watch but you can contribute on to keep these LIVE gigs going.

    The audio is then made available to radio stations for replay on FM and on their internet radio services. If your radio station would like to subscribe to receive 40 plus Soundcheck radio shows per year then please contact us for affordable pricing.

    Live Event Streaming

    The Visual Radio Arts team and technology is available for hire to bring the magic to your venue or event. If you are planning a live event – a performance, a workshop, a debate or a meeting – we can provide live streaming and post production services, using multi camera setup, stage lighting and wireless microphones to enable you to broadcast your message to the wider community of interest.

    Studio Recording

    At our studio we have the equipment and skills available to make affordable recordings and video sessions. You may want to record an ‘as live’ multitrack studio demo and a short video for online promotion. Or perhaps you need to create a short tutorial video to help support your product. Or maybe it’s that time of the year when you and your leadership team need to deliver a keynote message to all staff.

    Pop Parties

    What better way to celebrate a special occasion by having your child and their friends get together for a group sing along to their favourite music. We cater for groups up to 10 and each child will get a copy of the recording to take away on the day so they can remember it forever.

    And it’s not just about the music, we also have the facilities for a video shoot, for those who want to dance as well as sing. Our team will make sure that the children have fun and get the most out of it.
