The British ElectroAcoustic Network (BEAN) is an independent, not-for-profit organisation that aims to help support, represent and promote electroacoustic music from Great Britain. BEAN was established in September 2016 by Adam Stanović (Stansbie) and James Andean with the intention of forming a national network of composers, researchers, performers and teachers with an interest in electroacoustic music. The network has two primary aims: 1) to provide a national network that explicitly foregrounds and represents electroacoustic music, and 2) to encourage the creation and dissemination of such music at national and international events.
