we’re here to grind the teeth of the gears of musical culture and hopefully get something moving.
anyone new to the site, welcome. you may like to read the manifesto, which states our vision, our aims, and some of our ideas.
the biting point is a celebration of the vibrant, the daring and the relevant in new art music : attempts to engage with wider culture, with other artistic disciplines, with other audiences, with non-musicians, and with the zeitgeist as a whole.
we listen to those artists, ensembles and institutions aiming to break boundaries, hold up their successes, analyse any possible failures, all with the aim of turning a burgeoning but fragmented wave of new, young musical optimism into a powerful, focused cultural movement.
