Picture Gallery Composer-in-Residency 2020-21

Now in its fifth year, we set the task for nine sound artists/composers/music creators from across a range of genres to create music and sound installations exploring the wonderful art collection at Royal Holloway.

We are excited to premiere three responses today, where music creators were be tasked to create a new music landscape incorporating the live sounds of the musicians from both New Music Collective and New Voices Consort. These digital installations are accompanied by specially-commissioned videos showing the paintings and spaces that inspired them. 

This event will feature world premieres of music by Kyriakos CostaHaven, and Cora Bastable
