The Boreal Electroacoustic Music Society (BEAMS) is a non-profit society dedicated to the promotion and production of sound oriented experimentation. Its members are professional musicians, composers and media artists from diverse backgrounds who are driven to create a voice for sound art in Edmonton.

BEAMS has been active since 1989 and in that time has produced a regular concert season, three cassette and CD compilations and three major festivals - Radio Unbound (1995) and the Edmonton Intermedia Arts Festival and Symposium (1996 and 1998). The diversity of interests of our members has resulted in a high amount of community involvement in our events. Over the years, this has resulted in collaborative efforts with the local campus radio station CJSR, the University of Alberta, Grant MacEwan Community College, Edmonton Composers' Concert Society, Edmonton Art Gallery, Latitude 53 Gallery, the Film and Video Arts Society of Alberta, and Metro Cinema Society.

BEAMS' philosophy is one of inclusion. This has allowed us to explore a wide range of artistic expression, from the edges of popular music to electroacoustics and interactive multimedia performance to the avante-garde. Artists working in the areas of electroacoustic composition, radio art, improvised performance and computer interactive performance regularly make appearances during our concert season.
