About Platform

Platform will see the reforming of Electric Storm Ensemble and the establishment of a new ensemble for Disabled musicians.

Participants will meet regularly to collaborate to make music. You will create, rehearse and perform music together, using assistive music technology and traditional instruments.

The sessions will be group-led. You can learn new skills in music (performance, composition, rhythm and singing) and technology (using iPads and assistive musical instruments such as Soundbeam).

Electric Storm Ensemble last played together 12 months ago and played their own compositions plus covers of more well-known songs.
