This project is a pilot version of a new strand of our well established creative development programme, Embedded. In this trial of Embedded_Innovate, we will test what it is like having a composer in residence within a commercial organisation and will explore the benefits and new opportunities that could arise from such a partnership.
Composer-in-Residence: Tom Barnes
Tom Barnes has been selected to take part in our pilot version of Embedded_Innovate with London-based technology company, ROLI.
Tom will work with ROLI over the next twelve months, immersing himself in all things Seaboard - a radically new musical instrument that reimagines the piano keyboard as a soft, continuous, highly expressive surface.
Embedded is a Sound and Music composer and creative-artist development programme. Funded by The Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and the PRS for Music Foundation, Embedded places a selection of composers from a range of disciplines into extended relationships with leading national arts organisations.
