Features

Welcome to New Voices 2014, Sound and Music's relaunched composer support scheme. 

"One of the most exciting new features of the Collection website is the ability to free-tag composer profiles, scores, and articles"
"As a composer and music analyst the opportunity to explore a collection of thousands of scores and recordings is perfect for me"
"The new Collection website is a feat of music exchange and promises to be quite dynamic as an educational and research tool"
"Every single change of harmony, every addition of a new pitch, every introduction of a slight new register comes to feel like a monumental change"
"You are invited to the world of quiet and solemn emptiness of dark female voice with the punctuations of crunchy tasty cluster harmony!"
"This music is at once organic and surprising: sections lead logically from one to the next, but there are also moments of dramatic change"
"With work starting on the surveying and cataloguing of the British Music Collection, we would like to introduce you to one of the most exciting sections of the collection"
"With nearly 40,000 scores of both published and unpublished works, the British Music Collection is a treasure trove of musical creativity and diversity in Britain in the 20th and 21st centuries"
