Trans_Formation brought together 11 noise-makers, rappers, composers and DJs together to make new sounds with I. JORDAN. Find out more about them.
Over five days in January 2023 the group met, collaborated and vibed, with a premiere performance at Star & Shadow Cinema on the final day.
The team then took their sounds south for TRANUARY, a new day to night festival by trans for trans, platforming the best in trans talent from across the UK.
“I can't really explain the impact that week had on my life. Like it genuinely made me rethink my entire trajectory as a musician just because of how that feeling of making music with other trans people fostered my creativity.”

JORDAN reflects on the project as part of an RA Exchange episode. The conversation touches on the power of queer community, the spectre of imposter syndrome and the growing importance of nurturing creative outlets for marginalised musicians.
"There is something really beautiful about trans spaces, something that I can't put into words."
A huge thanks and congratulations to the artists:
Donna, Eve Kearton, HUSK, Lyn Vegas, Pansy Bbes, Phoenix Rousiamanis, Princess Xixi, SKID, Syn, TU3SDAY, Vision 25-C and Xo FKA jayda.
With thanks to guest artists:
