Episode 6: Offerings
Composers Errollyn Wallen, Richard Ayres, and Hannah Catherine Jones join Susanna Eastburn MBE and Des Oliver to share their music and thoughts exploring the gift of making music with and for other people.
We listen to music written for billions of listeners and music written for a community orchestra, the gift it is to write music and the gift it is to rehearse it. Join our CEO Susanna Eastburn MBE and composer Des Oliver for a unique insight into composing.
This podcast was produced by Michael Umney (Resonance FM) and mixed by Chris Bartholomew, with our theme tune composed by Rob Bentall. Our recommendation at the end is for Hannah Catherine Jones’ PhD research which is published by NTS Radio – tune in to Part 1 and Part 2 for an exploration of decolonisation through sound.
