A Making Music ‘Adopt a Composer’ scheme to pair young composers with amateur orchestras resulted in Esmeralda Conde Ruiz being paired with The Fretful Foundation – Brighton’s mandolin orchestra. Screen Archive South East and Esmeralda carefully edited together a film to which Esmeralda composed a score and titled ‘The other ocean’. The live show at the Attenborough Centre for Creative Arts was co-hosted by Frank Gray, Director, Screen Archive South East and was recorded by BBC Radio 3. This will be on air in January 2019.
The project is funded by the PRS Foundation, Philip and Dorothy Green Trust and Creative Scotland, and run by Making Music in association with Sound and Music.
