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.
“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.”
