Brownswood: Talent Development Partner
Gilles Peterson & Brownswood Music's Future Bubblers: Year 1 Candidates Live Development & Project Outreach in Collaboration with Ableton.
Future Bubblers is the new talent discovery and development arm of the Gilles Peterson and Brownswood Music family. Launched in April 2015, the intention is to make new inroads across England, both musically and geographically. Brownswood Music are selecting 10 “Bubblers” candidates each year to be paired with industry mentors and receive real-life music industry advice and development in tune with the individual vision for their own sound. The project is also working in 2 focus cities (e.g. Nottingham, Salford) each year to host free music events, workshops, panels and vibes for the local community to experience and appreciate musical styles that are often most under-represented.
Securing PRSF Talent Development Partner funding has allowed both levels of the project to develop and expand beyond original plans, by filming and producing live session videos in the form of Brownswood Basement Session performances as well as Collaboration workshops with partner organizations across the country in partnership with Ableton. In tune with the intention of removing all barriers possible to music creation and support, the Bubblers will be offered out free of charge to young musicians who have previously been excluded from such opportunities.
