Could you be one of the next composers to work with LSO Discovery? Applications are now open for up to six emerging composers to join two of our composer programmes: LSO Jerwood Composer+ and LSO Soundhub. Find out more about how the programmes can help you and how to apply before the deadline of Monday 1 July.

LSO Jerwood Composer+ 2019/20

The London Symphony Orchestra is pleased to recruit two composers for the LSO Jerwood Composer+ scheme's third year.

LSO Jerwood Composer+ supports composers in programming, planning and delivering two chamber-scale concerts in Jerwood Hall, LSO St Luke’s including work of their own developed through the programme. Composers will gain entrepreneurial skills around programming for specific audiences, planning and organising events, marketing and budgeting, gaining knowledge and practical experience in how to establish and promote themselves professionally.

Guidance and expertise will be provided by LSO staff and an external mentor. Composers will also access compositional workshops and masterclasses with other composers and LSO musicians, supporting the development of their own musical practice.

Two composers will be accepted onto the LSO Jerwood Composer+ scheme, which will run from September 2019 for up to 16 months. Applications are welcome from outstanding emerging composers from any musical background who would like to gain skills to support their professional development, work with world-class orchestral musicians and contribute to the concert programme and its developing audiences at LSO St Luke’s. Applicants may not be in full time formal education or training due to the time required.

We are particularly interested in applications from underrepresented groups. Further information and application details are available on the LSO Jerwood Composer+ webpage.

LSO Jerwood Composer+ is generously supported by Jerwood Arts

 

LSO Soundhub 2019/20

Applications are open for the flagship LSO Soundhub composer programme, now in its eighth year, thanks to generous funding from long-time London Symphony Orchestra supporter, Susie Thomson.

We will be recruiting four composer members to LSO Soundhub, our composer-led resource, which responds directly to the needs of those using it. Based at LSO St Luke’s, LSO Soundhub provides a flexible environment for composers to develop and showcase new work through exploration, collaboration and experimentation; and access to vital resources, state-of-the-art equipment and professional support.

We will offer up to four new members the opportunity to undertake projects with LSO musicians or independently, with membership for one year from September 2019, initially. LSO Soundhub is open to UK-based composers who create music using any medium. Composers must demonstrate an active interest in, and some experience of, working with classical musicians.

We are particularly interested in applications from underrepresented groups. Further information and application details are available on the LSO Soundhub webpage.

Sonic Electronics Festival

Workshop Fort Processor by Isn’tses

Saturday 01 June 2019, 11:00 – 17:00.

Iklectik Art Lab

 

Tickets £65 Advanced only / Maximum capacity 15

 

The Fort Processor is a touch and light controlled synthesiser and audio effect circuit designed by Isn’tses.

The circuit consists of:

• A section which distorts and octave-divides incoming audio (eg from a radio, walkman, mp3, synth etc)
• Squarewave oscillators controlled by touching the metallic drawings across the centre of the circuitboard with fingers (touch two or more at once), and also by a light sensor (best played using flashing/colour-changing lights or moving shadows)
• A chopper/ring-modulator which rhythmically slices between the distorted input signal and the oscillators,
• A ‘Twin-T’ section; a classic kick drum circuit mutated into a mysterious bass oscillator/drum/drone/filter which is influenced by the audio input.

If no audio input is connected, the circuit instead uses feedback and acts as a self-contained synth.

The Fort Processor is powered from a 9v DC, centre-negative power supply, ie a BOSS-style guitar pedal PSU. Other polarities or voltages will probably damage/destroy the circuit so be careful! It is possible to wire up a 9v battery too.

SONIC ELECTRONICS FESTIVAL

Borns with the need to create a place where to combine DIGITAL ARTS with ANALOGUE DEVICES and it is interested in showing processes of technological evolution.

Within computation the term DIGITAL, and its contrary, ANALOGUE, are frequently used to denote the difference between a numerical-digital and a physical model and help to separate out theoretical abstract computation from any particular concrete computational, and thus material, iteration.

So, SEF has as a reference the use of CODE as an original TECHNOLOGY for making MUSIC. It enjoys the DIY and HANDMADE spirit which ARTISTS, MUSICIANS, CODERS, MAKERS & HACKERS share. The activity fosters a community of tool DEVELOPERS and creative PRACTITIONERS interested in supporting creative practice through DIGITAL and ANALOGUE tools.

The festival also opens to OS / OH practices in a counter-laboratory and participatory process.

SEF will present an EXHIBITION, WORKSHOPS, TALKS, CONCERTS, a PUBLICATION and a RECORD.

With the collaboration of Iklectik Art LAB, SEF will set for many days as an experiment that shows an exhibition, workshops and concerts. With this hybrid format, SEF wants to increase the audience experience and make them participant.

The Festival collaborates together with Chalton Gallery to present new media art exhibition, with interactive works, AV installations and the most advanced technologies in music with PD, and the use of open software.

SEF also counts with the participation of POPklik, a London based collective in charge of the creative visual communication of the festival.

Claude Heiland-Allen, musician and software developer, is supporting the development of the festival and gives support as well as technical and aesthetic advice.

SEF is curated by Laura Netz, curator, artist, and director of EAM elektronische-art-and-music, a curatorial agency and record label, altogether with a network of collaborators and artists who support and facilitate the event.
