Drake Music Commission: Club Soda ‘Echoes in Time’


Echoes in Time is inspired by the brutalist architecture of the Queen Elizabeth Hall on London’s Southbank and the early concerts that were staged there.

It is simultaneously a ‘look into the past’ and ‘a glimpse of what’s to come’.

This is a new music commission from Drake Music & the Southbank Centre.

The commission was awarded to Royal Boil Alice – musicians from the pioneering arts organisation Club Soda. Club Soda creates opportunities for people with learning disabilities to be happy and social, creative and productive.

It was performed live for the first time at the ICA in London as part of DMResonate, supported by the Wingate Foundation. See the live performances from DMResonate here.
