Participation, exploration and education are at the heart of sound.

We offer a range of creative workshops, discussions and masterclasses for all ages.

soundgeneration is a year-round programme of contemporary music workshops and events. Most of these opportunities take place during or around the festival in October/November but we often have projects taking place at other times of the year. Check back regularly for details of forthcoming opportunities including Go Compose! our annual 3 day composition course for young composers in the school October holidays!
