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 are excited to be 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 will be working on two exciting projects which will involve composers, local residents, community groups and primary schools across across the city in the creation and performance of new music.
Minute of Listening will then feature these minutes by New Music Biennial composers, as well as unique sounds of the city of Hull.
Give us your feedback“Minute of Listening has broadened the children's experience of sound and music. It has developed their interest and inspired dance and music-making activities. It has introduced many unfamiliar sounds and instruments. It has given them the opportunity to talk about the unfamiliar, share their views and ideas. ”Primary Teacher, Primary Teacher
Give us your feedback“I can see how Minute of Listening can be used in other ways; it can be used in lesson support because the sounds are so varied, so if you were doing a geography topic or a particular book in literacy, you might be able to have a sound that links with that. It's a way of firing their imaginations”Alex Richardson, Science Co-ordinator
