Exploding Plastic Inevitable consisted of organised sound and lighting events constructed by Andy Warhol in 1966. His favourite group Velvet Underground performed there along with the showings of Warhol’s films and Nico.

Whether you’re into songwriting or jazz, film music or classical, this is your chance to take things to the next level and develop your creative voice. We know that there are very few opportunities for young composers and music creators to develop their compositional skills and voices, so we are working with partners across the country to create a network that can help them find that support. We support music educators who work with children and young people, so they can empower them to compose and create their own music.

John Lennon enjoyed experimentation with sound along with artist and wife Yoko Ono. They would create tape loops and use the technique ‘Musique Concrete’, a technology that allowed tapes to be cut and edited.
