A Day with Platform 4: Come and Compose – Creative Workshop with Platform 4

Past Events

£10/£8 Disabled & Unemployed /£6 Under-18s, booking required

As part of Sheffield’s Year of Making, the four members of the city’s composers’ collective Platform 4 help us to take a look at where musical inspiration comes from and how it is notated and performed.

Platform 4 are: Tom James, Jenny Jackson, Chris Noble, and Tom Owen

An afternoon of exploration and discovery! Use your musical imagination to help compose a new sequence of music inspired by Sheffield’s industrial heritage. Each participant will be encouraged to develop the group’s composition in their own way, contributing ideas and inspiration to the emerging piece. You might not (yet!) feel that you can compose, but this afternoon will enable you to explore what it means to be musically creative, and give you the chance to study and shape new music from your own unique perspective.

The afternoon includes refreshment breaks and plenty of space for reflection, culminating at 5pm with an informal performance of the new work. No previous composing experience is needed – only a bit of musical imagination, and a willingness to give it a go!

“Truly an amazing day out of time”  a recent first-time composer
