Croydon Composers is a pioneering music project which will bring together the borough’s aspiring composers to create cross-genre, cross community collaborations starting this summer. Project organisers, local Croydon-based organisation Drum The Bass, will select 10 participants – individuals or groups – from across the community, and they will be matched with each other to form five pairs of collaborators. Each pair will create one composition which will be recorded and performed in Croydon.

Participants will be mentored and produced by award winning composer, producer and musician Shri Sriram while music business consultant, Michael Fuller will hold a workshop and practical mentoring session with advice on music industry structure and royalties.
