Found Voices

by Joe Duddell and Craig Vear (£10,000)

At the heart of this digital opera for family audiences will be the words and voices of three communities of school children responding to climate change in very different geographic locations. Inspiration will be drawn from the many sonic properties found in these individual environments. The composers will work in collaboration with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and a video artist from the Soup Collective, to create an inspiring, uplifting musical response woven from the weather, the environment and its people.

Awarded £10,000 in January 2010
