about

NMS Presents: Lockdown Listening
Over three hours of new music in aid of Help Musicians UK

The New Music Society is a student-led initiative at Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London, UK. It offers opportunities for any composer at the school, regardless of their principal study, to showcase their work in a supportive environment.

We usually curate three concerts per year, one each term. Our Winter 2019 concert was a success, but as the spread of COVID-19 accelerated we were compelled to cancel our spring and summer concerts.

Rather than let the situation put a premature end to NMS 2019-20 we decided to kick back. In lieu of cancelled concerts: a compilation album, an opportunity to showcase the talents of Guildhall composers and performers whilst raising money for the charity Help Musicians UK.

We were overwhelmed by the response to our call for recordings. There were twenty-nine submissions and you will find twenty-nine tracks on this album; such was the quality and rich variety of the music we received. As you will hear, it is impossible to pigeonhole the new music that is being passionately created in and around the school.

We hope you enjoy listening as much as we have enjoyed curating.
