This Listening project | Live Music

Thursday 8 December

Presenting at Bermondsey Project Space for the very first time, The Listening Project are a New Music group that provides a platform for musicians to develop and explore music penned by living composers for an ever-changing creative landscape. In doing so, we seek to demystify the often archaic conventions of contemporary classical music.

Fusing together the worlds of contemporary classical, jazz, improvisation, electronics, song and sound art, The Listening Project comprises vibrant and compelling performers from the New Music scene in the UK.

The Listening Project looks for new ways to innovate and create groundbreaking performances that people want to come and watch, leaving audiences with a sense of fulfilment and joy.
