The New Music Biennial was a weekend-long celebration of new music that took place in Hull during the City of Culture celebrations in July 2017.  It featured 20 pieces of music by living composers who are pushing the boundaries of new music in the UK.

Some of those composers also visited schools and community groups in Hull to work with local people to create new music.  Some of those pieces have been included in Hull Collection #2.

Each of the 20 New Music Biennial pieces are featured in the Hull Minute of Listening collections – you can explore some of them here! We will be releasing more of them later in 2018, so watch this space!
