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.
Applications for September 2017
Applications for new Soundhub Members and Associates are now open.
Four new Members will be offered the opportunity to undertake projects with LSO musicians or independently, membership being for one year from September 2017 initially. Applications to join (or renew) Soundhub Associate membership are also open.
Please download the Applications Guidelines below for full details:
Additionally, please complete our online Equal Opportunities Form. The form is not used in the selection process and is kept in an anonymous format for monitoring purposes only.
Deadline: Friday 28 July 2017 (midday)
Up to four composers will be accepted as Members, and 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.
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.
The Soundhub Community is also extended to a wider group of Associates, who along with the Members, benefit from access to Soundhub events at LSO St Luke’s, LSO rehearsals and concerts, plus occasional access to space and other resources. This year we have 84 Associate composers.
