Inspired by Digital: LCO and QM’s joint project
QM is working closely with LCO on a project called 'LCO New: Explore project ‘Inspired by Digital', which is a study day, workshop and concert sequence that aims to forge new connections between composers, state-of-the-art technologies, performers, and listeners. The project, based at the People's Palace, celebrates the distinguished orchestra’s new residency at Queen Mary and is jointly led by QM’s world-leading Centre for Digital Music. A pump-priming grant from QM’s Centre for Public Engagement provides the seed funding for the events.
Young emerging composers will be introduced to the technologies and exposed to established composers’ responses to ‘inspired by’, stimulating their creative approach to composing music, and instigating new forms of musical expression, ways to conceptualise music, and listening experiences. These young composers will be invited to write short works using and integrating these technologies; selected compositions will be performed, recorded, and published by the LCO and C4DM. The study day, workshop, and concert are open to the public.
