Music Lab is an opportunity for people aged 14 – 19 yrs to explore the possibilities of music technology as a means of creating crossovers between musical genres.
Music Lab will be led by tutors Rob Westwood and Will Frampton, together with the percussion ensemble Quartet 19.
This will allow participants to create soundscapes together with professional musicians, using traditional musical instruments as well other sound sources, such as found sound and voice, to create experimental music and sound art.
Apps, synthesisers, loops and other elements of sound recording and editing will also be used and participants are also welcome to bring their own instruments. There will be no barriers to what you can create!
Music Lab is one of our projects as part of our Young Creatives programme which is a diverse, exploratory, innovative and experimental programme of activity with and for young people. Whatever the artform, at the heart of our ‘young creatives’ programme, is the desire to encourage arts-led inquiry and offer the means to discover and enhance a language of self expression in participants.
