Brighter Sound in Manchester is looking for 15 young music makers and composers to take part in its Found Sounds project.
Over the course of the week, participants will take over Manchester Central Library, and be given access to its archive including more than 2,000 audio files.
Collaborating with a team of skilled professional producers, the group will use the archives for inspiration, and respond to them, experimenting to create a modern day interpretation of what they find.
The project will focus on urban and popular music, but will fuse together other genres based on the group’s skills and interests.
According to Brighter Sound: ‘Musicians excited by the potential to use found sounds in new composition and with experience of beat-making, production, sampling, DJing, freestyling, remixing/ refixing or live instrumentals are invited to apply.’
In addition, participants will be able to explore Manchester city centre to find new and alternative sounds to include in their productions.
The week will culminate in an exhibition and performance at Manchester Central Library.
All work created will be added to the archives for future generations to explore, and will be used as part of a ‘Live’ presentation in Manchester Central Library.
