SEM Student Success

Johnny James Selected To Take Part

In Brighter Sound Commission

In October 2017 Manchester based creative charity Brighter Sound announced the opportunity for 16-25 year olds to take part in a brand new music commission. The commission named ‘Disruption’ questioned the role systems play within music making and the ways in which we’re able to disrupt them.
SEM music production student Johnny James applied to take part and was one of only 2 young people that were selected to take part. The two successful applicants received mentoring from professional sound artist
Vicky Clarke and over the last 3 months they have explored a range of audio format technologies.
The 3 month programme ends on Sunday April 8th when Johnny and two other artists will perform their pieces at Band On The Wall. We talked to Johnny James to find out more.
