Composer Social: West Yorkshire
Join our host, event promoter and musician, Sophie Cooper, for an online get-together with like-minded music creators in the West Yorkshire region.
If you are a composer, DIYer, electroacoustic musician, or create music in any way, you are welcome to join us.
The event will start with a talk led by Theo Gowans who will discuss his own work and artistic ideas, as well as the No Audience Underground and DIY event organisation in various spaces across Leeds. Following this, there will be space to chat about topics arising from Theo’s talk and a chance to share info about exciting opportunities in the region.

As well as his solo music work as Territorial Gobbing, Theo has also curated noise and improvised music gigs under the name “Heinous Whining” (both in Leeds and virtually throughout the pandemic), helped run the cooperative venue and practice space CHUNK, currently works as event organiser for cooperative venue Wharf Chambers, has collaborated with artists both locally in West Yorkshire and globally, and has released hundreds of albums on labels such as Chocolate Monk, Opal Tapes, Soundholes and Beartown Records.
This event is hosted by Sophie Cooper, a Sound and Music Associate, and is made possible through support by the Arts Council England and PRS Foundation.
