Event description

Description

How do you make music when you have no inspiration, little time and few resources? This workshop will lead you through writing a choral work to be performed later in the day. Music making will be seen as a productive mindfuck whereby with minimal input a state of extreme confusion can be created thus inducing the necessary illusion of inspiration very quickly with nothing more than a few simple ideas.
Bring a book or two. Limited space! Book Now!

Richard Youngs has been involved with music for most of his life. He discovered the power of the art form by thumping the family piano as an angry 5 year old. In the intervening 45 years he has attempted to harness the same experimental, naive, playful power in his live performances and in all of his 140 releases. This creative openness has led him to explore different musical genres.
He is classically trained in piano and guitar, but musically he grew up in the shadow cast by punk rock. Adopting guerrilla recording techniques, the independent D.I.Y. ethic is at his core.

“Imagine Richard Youngs as the junior member of a cabal of prolific and puritanical English musician--mystics, including The Fall’s Mark E Smith, Van der Graaf Generator’s Peter Hammill, Martin Carthy and The Clangers’ composer Vernon Elliot, and still his nature will elude you” - Stewart Lee, Sunday Times.
