LSO Soundhub

Soundhub showcase 2018 3Soundhub Phase I Showcase, July 2018


A platform for emerging composers

Based at LSO St Luke’s, LSO Soundhub provides a flexible environment where composers can explore, collaborate and experiment, with access to vital resources, support from industry professionals and LSO members and staff.

Soundhub is a composer-led resource, responding directly to the needs of those using it: a supportive framework for artists to try out new ideas, develop existing work and benefit from peer-to-peer networking and support.

The programme is open to UK-based composers and builds on the LSO’s ongoing investment in emerging talent, in particular through the Panufnik Composers Scheme.

The LSO supports Sound and Music’s Fair Access Principles, a code of best practice for running successful, open and inclusive artist development programmes, competitions and awards for composers.

Four Soundhub members each undertake an initial project at LSO St Luke’s either with a small group of LSO players, or an independent project for which space and other resources are provided. Each member is also allocated a mentor to support them as they develop their project. Soundhub offers support for one year initially (Phase I) – members may apply to be considered for two places available in a second year (Phase II).

The aim is to provide members with an opportunity to explore and develop their practice. These projects do not necessarily need to result in a finished product; the focus is on demonstrating learning and development through the creative process.
