Drake Music commission: Luke Lundin ‘The Angle of Looking’

Artist: Luke Lundin
Title: The Angle of Looking
Mentor: Charles Matthews
Commission Partner: Funky Llama, Theatre Royal Plymouth

Luke Lundin was the recipient of one of our Emergent commissions for early-career Disabled artists.

Funded by Help Musicians UK, the Emergent programme is designed to support Disabled musicians to build a portfolio career.

The programme creates chances for disabled musicians to write new music, train as music leaders, learn new skills and promote their work.

Luke commented:

“The theme of the commission is ‘nature and the environment’ and I have decided to take an abstract approach given the subject, thinking about tension and discord.

I have worked with music technology since I was 8 years old. I write sections of the piece in blocks – a melody here, a drum beat there – and combine them by mapping each section onto a key on the keyboard and triggering those parts during the live performance.”
