Art of Sound: Cedric Bardawil
Cedric Bardawil has travelled from Hawaii to Japan to Lebanon and back, searching for forgotten records and their stories.
Based in London, Cedric has hosted a night at Brilliant Corners for the last four years, inviting guest DJs from various musical backgrounds including Red Greg, Patrick Forge and John Gomez.
When playing out, he’s often looking for a balance between an obscure and popular sound, selecting records which may have failed commercially, but are distinctively produced and engage with a crowd. Interested in both listening and dance music, he often plays extended DJ sets where he can bring different sounds together.
When he’s not playing music, he’s been sharing his knowledge as a guest on radio stations including NTS Live, Red Light Radio and Worldwide FM, as well as writing for publications including The Vinyl Factory. In November 2017 he released his first recording on CGB Records, a live performance by New Age pioneer, Laraaji.
Since writing his MA dissertation on the interface of visual art and sound in 2013, Cedric has been exploring where the two worlds join. Thinking about space, sound and the impact it can have on an audience, he’s soundtracked numerous exhibitions.
This event is open to members of the Academicians’ Room, Patrons and Friends of the Royal Academy and booking is required. A limited number of tickets are available to the general public, so be quick to book if you don’t want to miss out!

The Academicians’ Room
An exclusive private members club for artists and art lovers.
The Academicians’ Room is a place to feel at home; a place to come together in a club setting designed exclusively for members. The club room in the Keeper’s House began life in 1883 as an architectural gallery, before becoming the favourite haunt of the Academy’s artists as a private members club. The room has now entered a new phase in its rich history, with a fresh look by the renowned Martin Brudnizki Design Studio. Vintage furnishings now create the intimate, bohemian ambience of an artist’s drawing room. It’s a vibrant and relaxed haven in the heart of Mayfair, join as a member and enjoy the company of this special artistic community.
