Talent Development Partners 2019: Sound Festival

Being an innovative new music creator is an ongoing challenge. Adventurous audiences are small, funding is rare and there are a limited number of artists performing this type of work, making it difficult for composers to find commissions and have work performed. As one of Scotland’s principal new music promoters, we have a responsibility to support UK and Scottish creators – nurturing their talent and facilitating opportunities to have their music heard nationally and internationally.

Our soundcreators programme offers a number of development opportunities, supporting those creating cutting-edge new music from across the “new” music spectrum in the UK. It includes emerging, mid-career and established composers as well as creative performers who work closely with composers and/or are creative through improvisation. In 2019-2020 we will work with over 60 creators.

There are seven strands to our soundcreators project:
i) a composer-in-residence scheme offering a tailor-made programme of activities;
ii) commissioning of new works;
iii) mentored commissioning for emerging and mid-career composers with extra help and support where needed;
iv) skills development for composers through workshops and individual support;
v) supporting creative performers to work more closely with composers and develop their own creativity;
vi) researching the professional barriers to creators with Additional Support Needs & developing a support programme;
vii) providing national/international opportunities for creators where possible.
