About

"... support musicians and be involved in the monthly commissioning, recording, filming and performance of new music, featuring an eclectic range of leading artists, composers and bourgeoning young instrumentalists." - Jazzwise



Welcome - thanks for visiting! With the UK live scene completely upside down since March and unlikely to be back to anything vaguely resembling what we love until next summer, we feel it’s vital to try and support musicians and composers longer-term, both creatively and financially, along with the world of engineers, studios, filmmakers, labels and writers who work alongside them.

We would really value and appreciate your ongoing support to be involved in the monthly commissioning, recording, filming and performance of new music, which will feature a wonderfully exciting range of leading artists, composers and burgeoning young instrumentalists and musicians who are all part of a live scene which has virtually disappeared for the last six months.

There are lots of (we hope!) interesting and exciting benefits you'll receive in return for your ongoing support - check out the different options above.  You'll also be a key part in supporting something we really hope can build and evolve to help the scene.

Through commissioning, we can pay composers and musicians properly, give the impetus to focus on something new and exciting, create brand new artistic collaborations, and give a legacy to expand on the music in the coming months to perform it to audiences of real humans in the same space in 2021!

We're very excited that in the next year, we’ll then be able to release a collection of this music with new albums of truly eclectic writing and playing from some of the most inventive musicians and writers around.

We’ll also begin to amass a digital archive, and will have well-filmed recordings and studio-quality audio of each work sitting alongside interviews, podcasts and writing.  As we grow, with your support we can add even more regular commissions, and invite film-makers or animators to produce ever-more adventurous film alongside the music.

This is not-for-profit, so everything you contribute will go back into making this a long-term creative success.

Thanks for your support, and please get in touch if you have any questions or ideas.

ps .. here's our first pilot podcast from the spring, with Tony Dudley-Evans, of the Cheltenham Jazz Festival, TDE Promotions and Jazzlines Birmingham
