Architecture in Music

In his Architecture of Music Series, Charles Brooks uses Special Probe lenses and High Resolution Lumix cameras to capture the inside of instruments in a way that makes them appear vast and cavernous. Each photo is made up of dozens to hundreds of individual frames, carefully combined to give the sensation of space and depth.

See if you can work out which instruments are photographed below:

Exciting opportunity for composers in years 10-13

Future Makers is an exciting new opportunity for young London-based musicians. Taking place on 9 November 2022, this main stage event at the Royal Albert Hall will feature young creatives from across the capital performing their original works to a stellar industry panel, invited guests and an audience of young people.

Submissions to take part in the event will be open from 21 February – 9 May 2022. Entrants must be submitted via a London Music Hub. Please see the ‘Criteria’ tab for more information.

A shortlist of acts will be invited to a live audition in the Hall’s Elgar Room in July, and entrants will be informed by the end of July if they will be taking part in the live show.

A cross-genre industry panel will give feedback and advice to all performers following the concert, and the winning act will receive a bespoke package of support and opportunities from the Hall and its partners to continue their development as an artist.
