City Battle of the Bands II

We were recently pleased to host the second City battle of the bands which took place here at the Brady Arts Centre. The event featured bands and artists from across the nearby financial district, all cheered on by their friends and colleagues. The bands performing included the Catford Honeys, Triggerfish, Carbon Copy and audience members were also treated to a guest appearance from young guitarist and singer Gemma Warren, currently benefiting from CMs Music Space Programme. The winners on the night, voted for by the judges and the audience vote, were Carbon Copy, a well earned victory! The event raised funds for CM's youth programme, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who attended and took part. If you are interested in helping support the work that CM does, either as an individual or as a business, find out here how you can become a friend of CM.

CM and the OAE

Students from CM's Creative Music Production & Business course worked alongside the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment to create new musical compositions.This collaborative work focused on both the technical and the creative demands of working with unfamiliar sources and styles; taking place in the unique acoustic space at Village Underground. Students used the recordings to form brand new pieces of music, fusing their own production styles with the acoustic samples.
