Our project is designed to introduce young musicians of all instrumental disciplines, aged 10 - 20, to techniques and performances of the last and present years, involving them in a 'hands on' ethos. This will be the starting point for a National young ensemble for contemporary music.

This is the first of two projects each containing three workshops, a workshop performance, and culminating in a professional concert. The workshop sessions will include 'behind the scene' access for participants to the professional specialist groups prior to their concerts.

Participants of the third workshop will rehearse and perform a transcription by Roberto David Rusconi of a work by Josquin Deprez.  These workshops and performances are formulated to stimulate young musicians' understanding of sound and to enhance their instrumental skills in creating them. We want to create an environment that is supportive in developing experimental material and communicating it in performance.

The project is intended to introduce new perspectives, different inputs and real interdisciplinary work providing additional material for GCSE/A level Music and Science. Students will receive a document confirming their participation.

The workshops will explore extended technique and theory, compositional techniques, and ensemble craft. We will be investigating the ways in which contemporary composers explore and explode the parameters of timbre, dynamic, pitch and rhythm in conjunction with instrumental specialists. We will also look at the relationship between memory and emotion related to practicing and studying.
