  • 'Working with Sound and Music on their Portfolio scheme has shown us a dizzying array of new composing talent. In choosing Rasmus Zwicki and Amble Skuse we anticipate two wildly exciting new Paraorchestra premieres. These two fierce creative spirits could not be more welcome!' Charles Hazlewood, conductor and founder of the British Paraorchestra
  • 'I am most excited to work with Portfolio because it enables me to take the leap from composing for dance, theatre, film or whatever to writing concert music. This will give me a chance to try and manifest all these abstract ideas I have, to experiment and explore new territory with the quartet, getting mentoring and support and hopefully ending up with work which is challenging, beautiful and modern.' Dom Bouffard, composer
  • 'As a composer who also performs as an electric guitarist, the opportunity that this Portfolio project offered to work in the capacity of a composer with four other electric guitarists was very attractive to me indeed. It feels like this opportunity has come at a particularly important time for both elements of my practice; after a substantial period of time of focussing solely on my work as a composer, I have recently become more active as a guitarist again, and I think this project gives me a very interesting chance to examine these two elements of my practice in relation to one another.' Alex Mackay, composer

  • To allow composers to develop a portfolio of compositions in collaboration with professional ensembles and presenting organisations and deliver this work to public audiences.
