Pitch us Things!

Do you have an idea for a feature, interview or essay about new music and sounds in the UK?

Our editorial content explores the people, places, sounds, and emerging issues in the new music landscape. From climate change and automation, to post-truth and the politics of race and gender, composers today are looking and responding to the world around them in fascinating new ways. They’re also working in new ways and crossing different boundaries – between discipline, medium, and method.

We think this amazing buzz of activity deserves coverage that is sharp, accessible and up-to-date.

We pay for every article we commission.

If you’d like to write for us, you can pitch your ideas to our team by emailing Laonikos on Laonikos.PC@soundandmusic.org

It’s easiest for us to consider your pitch when it is direct (e.g. “I have noticed XYZ trends in ABC and I think this is important“) rather than generic (e.g. “I would like to write about notation.“). Even if you don’t have a super clear idea of what the final writing is about, we can help focus your ideas for a written piece.

Do get in touch – we’d love to hear from you!
