Fancy performing at the first ever London Contemporary Music Festival?

Participate in a time-based piece at the inaugural Peckham event.


Words by: Sandra Song

Playing everything from Phillip Glass to Bernard Parmegiani, the inaugural London Contemporary Music Festival will descend upon south east London for two long weekends of experimental music and art in a Peckham multistorey car park. Premiering several new works, as well as performances by the likes of multimedia artist Ed Atkins and legendary No Wave pioneer Glenn Branca, the festival features a well-curated roster of contemporary greats and talented newcomers. 

For those interested in participating, intermedia artist Michael Haleta is currently searching for volunteers to help perform his piece '4 Points, 40 Paths.' A large scale time-based sound event that's set to take place on the last day of the festival, the work requires 40 musicians and non-musicians to help build instruments and/or perform. To volunteer or to find out more, email Michael at by July 26th.

The London Contemporary Music Festival 2013 will run over two long weekends from the 25th July to the 4th August. Find out more here.
