Below you can find out more about some of our projects, developments and collaborations. These include exciting partnerships with PRSF New Music Biennial, Hull City of Culture 2017 and Bristol Beacon (previously Bristol Plays Music), as well as new minutes and training opportunities that you and your school can access through Minute of Listening.
Minute of Listening is working in collaboration with a number of cultural partners, clusters of schools and music education hubs across the UK, and we hope that one day all children will have the opportunity to access and experience creative listening. If you would like to discuss an idea or an upcoming project at your school or in your area, please get in touch.
Bristol Plays Music
Bristol Plays Music (BPM) is the music education hub for Bristol. We believe in the power of music – to inspire, teach and transform lives. We want to make sure that every young person has access to music education activities and a platform for musical expression.
Minute of Listening for Bristol is a bespoke pack of minutes and sounds taken from all over the city.
Bristol’s unique and vibrant cultural heritage lends itself perfectly to this collection of music, natural and industrial sounds.
Hull New Music Biennial
We had the pleasure of working alongside PRS for Music Foundation, which supports and provides a platform for talented organisations and music creators who are pushing the boundaries of new music in the UK.
As part of Hull UK City of Culture 2017, Minute of Listening worked on two exciting projects which involved composers, local residents, community groups and primary schools across across the city in the creation and performance of new music.
Minute of Listening featured these minutes by New Music Biennial composers, as well as unique sounds of the city of Hull.
