Sound and Music Embedded

February 18, 2015 in All Opportunities, Composers by mwhiteside

For our Spring 2015 Embedded residencies, we are delighted to announce partnerships with BBC Symphony Orchestra, Cafe OTO and Music Hackspace. 

 The BBC Symphony Orchestra has played a central role at the heart of British musical life since its inception in 1930. It provides the backbone of the BBC Proms, performing around a dozen concerts each year, including the First and Last Nights.

The BBC SO has a strong commitment to 20th-century and contemporary music, with recent performances including commissions and premieres from Brett Dean, Tristan Murail, Colin Matthews, Esa-Pekka Salonen and Bright Sheng. As Associate Orchestra of the Barbican, it performs an annual season of concerts there. Its 2014/15 Barbican season includes a series of Nielsen’s six symphonies with Sakari Oramo, Unsuk Chin’s opera Alice in Wonderland, Smetana’s Dalibor with Jiří Bělohlávek, live accompaniment to Chaplin films, and Total Immersion days remembering John Tavener and celebrating Pierre Boulez at 90.

The Music Hackspace was founded in 2011 as a community of artists, engineers, and entrepreneurs passionate about music and technology, and as a place to share and develop ideas, knowledge, technologies, processes and aesthetics about music and audio.

The main activities consist of regular seminars, workshops, performances and residencies. Our mission is to support the development of innovative projects in a dynamic and friendly atmosphere. We are located at the epicentre of our active community in Regents Canal next to Broadway Market, where we meet every Thursday.
