The Big Lockdown Music Survey: Call for Music Creators

The Big Lockdown Music Survey: Call for Music Creators

Wednesday, 15 December 2021, 5.00pm

Funded with Arts Council England National Lottery Project funding, The Big Lockdown Music Survey is a snapshot in recorded music of a once-in-a-generation experience shared by the nation.

The Big Lockdown Music Survey will tell the story of the first national lockdown introduced in England on 23 March 2020 from the perspective of music creators, through recorded music and sound, data and testimony. We are interested in representing the broadest range of musical styles and in showcasing music creatives from the broadest range of backgrounds. The survey will be an account of exceptional personal circumstances, of emotions engendered by enforced isolation (or enforced community), but also of creativity, technical innovation, personal resilience, and originality.

By making music that was created all over England during this period accessible, we will together examine questions such as: How do you make music together, remotely? How has your music-making been facilitated by new technologies? How has the experience of the pandemic influenced the content and form of your work? How has the pandemic changed you as a creator?

We will develop additional elements to share knowledge and expertise on home recording techniques, aimed at those who may have recently begun recording their own music for the first time or are studying music technology at school or college but have limited access to equipment.

Applicants whose work is selected will be remunerated according to an MU-approved fee scale.
