'Croydon Composers' is a project by 'Drum The Bass'.
It's about creating new, cross - genre collaborations between aspiring & established composers.
Participants are selected & setup as duos, trios or bands to collaboratively compose, record & perform 1 new composition each. They are mentored in music & music business by established music professionals.
Young Croydon Composers 2021
Since you were last here, the 17 Young Croydon Composers (between the age of 12 & 18) have astounded us with what they came up with - incredible enthusiasm, energy, creativity and ORIGINAL COMPOSITIONS that are inspiring in every way !!!
To think, a lot of them did not know what 'composition' and 'collaboration' was at the start of this project.
And this is what they created! (click here to watch & hear their music)
All this was done with the help of mentors Shri Sriram & Dennis Rollins, facilitators Felix Shepherd & Shirin Sriram (who is also the project producer/director), ToneO who conceptualised/filmed/edited the videos and Michael Fuller, who ran a workshop on the business of music and what creating and thus owning a composition entails!
All of this, supported by Arts Council England AND Croydon Music & Arts.
