We’re thrilled to introduce the talented artists selected to join Beth Orton for the first residency in our brand new Both Sides Now programme.
Both Sides Now is our three-year programme to support, inspire and showcase women in music across the North of England. For the launch of this programme Beth Orton will direct the emerging artists over a five-day artistic residency where they will create new music, contemplate dialogue and response in the process of songwriting, and perform at the launch of Both Sides Now on Thursday 23 November to an audience of specially-invited guests.
“I’d like the residency to be about collaboration and experimentation. Mixing sounds and textures and voices to create music beyond definition. I’m looking for stories that reach beyond genre or gender. For me, Both Sides Now stands for a space where you can feel free to create music you feel excited to explore, a language you get to define for yourself and not be defined by.” – Beth Orton
