‘Interplay Now’ enables new musical collaborations across different cultures.
We are a new project bringing together very different musical genres, cultures and communities to create new music, and to encourage deeper understanding of the background to that music both artistically and socially using educative journalism. The UK is rich in having a very diverse range of cultures and the innovative possibilities through bringing us together are mostly underused. Our project’s starting point is with a diverse group of people mostly who arrived as refugees, who will perform, talk about and webcast a range of music created during the weekly project sessions. This is the Interplay Now Collective.
We aim to bridge divides, generate artistic innovation and develop organisational skills among local people. Interplay Now is creating an open crossover music and webcasting collective and we are also developing three micro-commissions connecting unusual pairs of Sheffield based musicians. .
Interplay Now hopes to catalyse the future evolution and understanding of musical crossover. We will use educative webcasting to develop audiences and influence musical and creative practice.
