Drawing together, via a co-operative network of some of the most innovative independent promoters, artists and labels, and sponsored by The Arts Council of England, LOGARHYTHM aims to readdress the balance between the UK's pool of pioneering and creative talents, and the under representation of electronic music, particularly in the live arena, with a series of events, workshops, tutorials and concerts that will serve as a focal point for the UK's electronic music scene.

With a bold approach, not only to staging music events, but also to
exhibiting the work of up-and-coming visual artists, LOGARHYTHM also aims to provide potential promoters with training in the areas of funding, fundraising, marketing and promotion, as well as offering advice, discussion and seminars on the core technologies of electronic music. In addition, each event will also offer rare and exclusive vinyl and CDs for sale.

Allied to these live events, and supporting LOGARHYTHM's aims and activities will be an ever-changing communication hub and forum - www.logarhythm.org.uk - which, with a dynamic content, including extensive record and live reviews, will also contain comprehensive listings sections, message boards and expert advice columns.

This website has become the two-way focal point of the organisation's operation since its launch in late June.
