In a nutshell

A collective musical engagement using graphic scores, text and recordings

Go on...

Since 2015 the Vonnegut Collective has facilitated creative music-making, story-telling and free expression through structured and improvised sound in the concert hall and within local communities.

Championing Kurt Vonnegut’s philosophies on personal involvement in the arts to ‘find out what’s inside you’, to ‘make your soul grow’, these passionate musicians work tirelessly to present new music in unique and engaging ways, challenging hierarchies between composer, score, performer and audience. They wish to give everyone the chance to experience new music in an active and inclusive way, giving people ownership of the music of their own time.

The performance will place the musicians within a surrounding audience. This will be a collective musical engagement using graphic scores, text and recordings, all of which have grown out recent work with local schools, universities and care homes. Prepare to be engaged! A discussion will follow the event.
