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.
LSO Soundhub is generously supported by Susie Thomson, The Northwood Charitable Trust and The Garrick Gharitable Trust.
The 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, and will showcase work developed through the scheme at LSO St Luke's on Saturday 14 July 2018.
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 96 Associate composers.
