Sounding Out 10:00 am - 12:00 pm on 27/11/2014
Part of the Next Wave Showcase
Getting going as a professional: what do composers need?
hcmf// showcases 12 of the freshest and most talented composers emerging out of higher education in Britain. Selected from around the country for the Sound and Music / NMC Recordings Next Wave programme, the composers have had time and space to develop new works for leading UK performers including Sarah Nicolls, Loré Lixenberg, Oren Marshall, Sound Intermedia and London Sinfonietta. As a cohort they have worked together, as well as receiving mentoring from Richard Baker, David Horne, Alwynne Pritchard and Richard Rijnvos, and the 12 new works are also available for download from NMC as part of a new album celebrating the label’s 25th birthday.
The Next Wave showcase is presented alongside key debate and discussion about how talented composers coming out of education can thrive, as part of Sound and Music’s popular Sounding Out series.
Produced by hcmf// and Sound and Music, in partnership with NMC Recordings; supported by PRS Foundation, Help Musicians UK, Lord and Lady Lurgan Trust, Angus Allnatt Charitable Foundation, The Steel Charitable Trust, The Fenton Arts Trust and Stanley Picker Trust
