EXTRAORDINARY MUSIC FOR EVERYONE
We produce extraordinary musical encounters.
We want as many people as possible to experience and enjoy these.
To make this happen, since 2001 we’ve sought out the most creative artists, realising their most imaginative musical ideas for the enjoyment of audiences across the UK.
MORE MUSIC TO MORE PEOPLE
We want to make it easier for more people to experience and learn about exciting new music and the people that create it. We do this through providing a range of ways to get involved in our work including talks, workshop programmes and training.
We also create projects that call on local communities to help artists create new music in response to where they live.
Together with artists and other partner organisations, we create a wide range of ways to experience new music; from concerts in major concert halls to villages, sound installations in museums to music performed on farms plus digital works for the online community worldwide.
The music we present in these places embraces all musical genres, from jazz to sound art, electronic to contemporary classical and all points in between.
Across everything we do we strive to enable artists and audiences to take risks – and enjoy them.
