Platform – a new inclusive ensemble for Disabled musicians in Bristol


A new Drake Music project will start in September in Bristol.

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

Electric Storm Ensemble gathered at the front of a large room made of wood & windows

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

We will be inviting new people to join the group, with the opportunity to come along to a series of taster sessions, before forming a new ensemble who will work towards a performance in early 2018.

Meeting regularly, participants will collaborate to create, rehearse and perform music using assistive music technology and traditional instruments.

The sessions will be group-led and there will be the opportunity to learn new skills in music (performance, composition, rhythm and singing) and technology (use of iPads and assistive musical instruments such as Soundbeam).

More information about the sessions will be available very shortly.

If you would like to register your interest in the sessions please e-mail

Platform is supported by the John James Bristol Foundation, D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust and the Quartet Foundation.
