Music for a Better World
event announced! 3rd Oct 4-7
The event is FREE and open to all. It will include hands on 'noise stations' and a graphic score doodle table. Drop in and have a play!
Graphic scores by neurodiverse composers will come to life at a playful hands-on concert for children and young people – with the help of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop – which takes place at the Cornish Bank in Falmouth.
Earlier this year, the G7 summit was held in Cornwall and the acclaimed Scores of People project – which was launched in 2020 by the local arts organisation Moogie Wonderland – returned with a new programme called Music for a Better World to coincide.
Five neurodiverse artists and composers were commissioned to create graphic scores based on the themes of the summit: tackling climate change, the global recovery from coronavirus and championing free and fair trade. Now, children and young people will be invited to perform on noise stations in response to those scores at a playful hands-on concert, which takes place at the Cornish Bank in Falmouth on Sunday, October 3, from 4pm to 7pm. Entry is free.
Moogie Wonderland has benefitted from support and guidance from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop on how the event can have an orchestral feel and how participants can be guided through collaborative improvisation. At the noise stations, people taking part will be able to make sounds such as relaxing notes that can be shaped and stretched, or using white noise to replicate the wind and the sea to the scores, which are in a number of formats.
The project has been made possible thanks to support from Arts Council England, using funding from the National Lottery.
