Bristol project shortlisted for the PRS New Music Award
PRS for Music Foundation’s New Music Award recognises and celebrates leading innovators in the UK. It provides investment, support and profile for exceptional and pioneering music creators. Allowing total creative freedom, the Award is open to absolutely anyone working in any genre and artistic context.
It is an opportunity for anyone to come up with a ground breaking idea for a new work, which, if chosen, will be given a £50,000 prize towards its creation and performance. A panel of 6 judges will select the most exciting idea from a shortlist of 5, which will be awarded the prize in September 2010.
This year, one of the finalists is the Bristol based project SATSYMPH. Developed by south-west-based composer and artist Marc Yeats, poet Ralph Hoyte and coder Phill Phelps, this project will allow people to create their own “satellite symphony” through an iPhone app.
PRS Foundation have made 5 films – one for each of the finalists – to explain their idea to you. You can view all of these videos on the PRS for Music Foundation website and vote for the one you think should win the prize of £50,000.
Who’s the most pioneering music creator in the UK for 2010? 5 finalists have been chosen but only 1 can win the £50,000 prize…
Remember, you can vote only once and voting ends midnight Sunday 5th September 2010.
