We’re looking for talented music makers aged 13-18 to take part in Breaking the Silence – a major project to mark a century of remembrance in partnership with Imperial War Museum North.
Using electronics, digital technologies and vocals, you’ll experiment with sounds and silence to create a modern day response to the centenary of the end of the First World War, performing at Imperial War Museum North this forthcoming Remembrance Sunday, November 11 2018.
This is a great opportunity for young producers, lyricists, spoken word artists, singers, songwriters – or anyone with an interest in making music in new and innovative ways, and developing themselves as musicians.
Across four weekly sessions, you will:
- Collaborate with other young music makers
- Work alongside a team of cutting edge Manchester-based artists and producers
- Create personal and collective responses to the Lest We Forget exhibition at Imperial War Museum North (IWM North)
- Explore vocal technique, the voice within electronic music, microphone technique and live performance
- Showcase your work as part of a historic remembrance event on Sun 11 Nov
