Sound Explorers wanted
As part of our Birmingham 68 programme during the festival (more on which very soon...), composer and filmmaker Scott Johnston is working with people in the Erdington area to create a new piece of work inspired by hidden histories. During February he'll be running a couple of sessions at the Welcome Cafe in Erdington High Street, starting this Saturday 3rd February. If you're based in the area and interested in playing around with sounds, get yourself down there. For more info or to book a place please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This commission is part of a two-year initiative called For-Wards, which will create a feast of new music in collaboration with people across Birmingham. More info here, and look out for a series of climactic performances in June.
