DESCRIPTION

Artists:

Prisoners and staff from HMP Lowdham Grange

Composer Mark-Anthony Turnage partners with the Irene Taylor Trust ‘Music in Prisons’ and some new composers, comprising a group of prisoners from HMP Lowdham Grange. Beyond Thispresents music as a powerful vehicle for change, and enables prisoners to contribute positively to New Music 20x12.

'As a patron, I am highly supportive of the charity's attempts to influence change in prisoners' lives through music. I will relish the opportunity to collaborate with a group of new, untrained composers and use their raw talent, energy and ideas to develop a piece of new music for the Cultural Olympiad.' Mark-Anthony Turnage

New Music 20x12 is the brainchild of Jillian Barker and David Cohen who wanted to put new music at the heart of the Olympic celebrations in 2012. It is delivered by PRS for Music Foundation in partnership with BBC Radio 3, London 2012 and NMC Recordings. For a full list of funding partners click here.
