Sound UK's new artist development programme, Sound Generator, reveals its first artists.
Following an open call, a panel of judges, including leading figures across music, chose six artists at the forefront of sound and music.
Each artist is in the first 5-10 years of their career. Over the next six months, they will be supported by a range of professionals to develop an innovative idea ready for showcasing to the industry. These range from sonic sculptures to opera exploring racism against Chinese communities. DJ/turntablism to a multi-sensory installation inspired by our environment.
The aim? Exciting new work for you to discover in the future.
