Join us to learn how you can make use of the British Music Collection: the UK’s national archive for new and experimental music.

The collection’s digital platform offers ways to discover a vast range of artists, including many neglected in mainstream programming. As a composer, you can use the platform to boost your profile and find out more about your peers’ work. From rare 1970s graphic scores, to recordings, books and unpublished letters, the collection is a prism on to the little-known material cultures of British new music – a way of bringing times, places, scenes and sounds vibrantly to life in the present.

As well as an opportunity to  experience first-hand some of the collection’s most fascinating items, we’ll also hear from Susanna Eastburn MBE and Angharad Cooper, both of Sound and Music, who are working to develop and expand the collection for the future.
