PRS Foundation's New Music Biennial 2019

5 - 7 July (London), 12 - 14 July (Hull)

J-Night is proud and delighted to be contributing to three commissions by Sarah Tandy, Arun Ghosh and Numb Mob as PRS Foundation announces the new works selected for the New Music Biennial 2019 in Hull and London South Bank in July. 

The critically-acclaimed free festival - a PRS Foundation initiative presented in partnership with Absolutely Cultured (Hull), London’s Southbank Centre, BBC Radio 3 and NMC Recordings - features brand new music by the most exciting music creators working in the UK today. The programme includes new, global music across all genres - from electronica to jazz, folk to chamber music, orchestral pieces to music for kora, gamelan, oud and organ. Pushing the boundaries of new music, many of the pieces experiment with projection, installation, spoken word and dance.

Presenting and commissioning works of no longer than 15 minutes, the New Music Biennial provides a unique pop-up and accessible way for audiences to discover new music and learn more about the pieces from the artists themselves through Q&A sessions.

Other artists taking part in the New Music Biennial include Aidan O’Rourke, Kit Downes & James Robertson, Sona Jobarteh, Gazelle Twin & Max de Wardener, Roderick Williams, Shiva Feshareki, Dan Jones, Jessica Curry, Claire M Singer, Khyam Allami, Edmund Finnis, Forest Swords & Immix Ensemble, Klein, 9 Bach, Conor Mitchell, David Fennessey and Rolf Hind.

All events are free, but ticketed. Tickets will be released 7 June.

New Music Biennial is supported by: Arts Council England, Creative Scotland, Arts Council of Northern Ireland, Arts Council of Wales, University of Hull, The John S Cohen Foundation, The Richard Thomas Foundation, The Radcliffe Trust, RVW Trust, The Finzi Trust, The Bliss Trust and the BBC Concert Orchestra.
