New Voices 2018

We’re pleased to announce that we are being supported by Sound and Music for two years as one of the artists in New Voices 2018:

Sound and Music is delighted to announce the 15 composers and creative artists who will be its 2018 New Voices, and the first group to go through this brand new artist development programme.

New Voices 2018 are: Alex Ho, Andy Ingamells, Bex Burch, Daniel McBride, David Austin Grey, Edmund Hunt, Eska Mtungwazi, Eunseog Lee, Gugak Sounds, Johnny Hunter, Liz Johnson, Marcus Joseph, Stuart Brown, Supriya Nagarajan and Vicki Bennett.

Congratulations to our New Voices 2018! These fifteen are creating work across a very broad range of musical genres but they share a deep commitment to critical engagement with their practice. All fifteen New Voices want to make changes to, and effect development within, their work. They are learners who cultivate their craft and we hope to be worthy of the trust they have placed in us to work alongside them.

New Voices is Sound and Music’s major Composer Development programme, lasting 18 months with an annual intake. It draws on the models from our previous EmbeddedPortfolio and Pathways programmes, and on the partnerships and expertise nurtured through these schemes. Find out more here.

Article about our influence across genres

Tom Comitta recently published the book Airport Novella, which he states was influenced by the People Like Us a/v piece “DrivingFlyingRisingFalling.” We can see the influence and know that our collation approach is very similar to a lot of writers, which in turn inspires us in the direction of wanting to work more with text as a primary output.
