Sound and Music

New Voices: an artist development programme for new ideas, new sounds and new music

  • Are you a composer or artist creating or composing your own original music or sound?
  • Are you looking to explore, stretch and realise your creative ideas and ambitions?
  • Are you determined and excited to explore your artistic and personal development?

Then this could be the opportunity for you.

In June 2018 Sound and Music announced the New Voices for 2018: fifteen composers, music creators and artists who together make up the first group to take part in this new programme.

Now Sound and Music is on the lookout again.

We are looking for New Voices for 2019, and we want to hear from you.

Register your interest. That’s all you need to do at this stage.

Sound and Music aims to ensure that all its programmes and activities are inclusive and are representative of the diverse range of composers and music creators working across the UK today. This includes our New Voices programme.
