As a musician and workshop leader with an understanding of music as a process, a state of mind, and a tool for growth, I believe that focussing too much on the ‘final product’ of a project can sometimes be counter-productive.
This #DM20 commission- a new composition written by deaf people for deaf people (and everyone else) – is the first time I have been responsible for the complete planning and delivery of a project of this scale.
The seed of the idea for my #DM20 commission came during a conversation in a music workshop with a girl who used cochlear implants.
Drake Music is delighted to announce 2 new artist commissions by Sophie Partridge and Ben Sellers as part of #DM20, our 20th anniversary celebrations.
