Among all the events for Sŵn 2011, one of the most interesting is Beyond Borders, in Swansea on Friday 28 October.

Beyond Borders is a grant scheme run by the Performing Right Society and is designed to assist musical cooperation between areas of the UK, in this case Wales and Northern Ireland. Belfast DJ and composer Phil Kieran is working with Swansea experimental group White Noise Sound at Volcano Theatre, in the newly-redeveloped High Street area of the city.

The gig comes after the two parties have collaborated, working up ideas brought by the other, with a third, completely collaborative, effort. The concert will feature these new works, as well as pre-existing material.

White Noise Sound, who have recently released their début album (on Alive Records, home of The Black Keys and Iggy Pop), produced by Pete Kember of Spacemen 3, said: "We're confident the collaboration with Phil will create some very interesting results. We're looking forward to this."

The gig takes place on Friday 28 October at the Volcano Theatre Company, Swansea, from 8-10.30pm

Beyond Borders Swansea has been put together by Northern Ireland's Oh Yeah Music Centre, Welsh Music Foundation and Swansea Creative Hub.
