A new programme from Making the Future exploring history of music and creating new songs.
Cultural Harmony is a new online music programme that will see participants explore the history of music in Northern Ireland and work with leading musicians to write new songs.
Taking inspiration from music created during the 1970s and 1980s in Northern Ireland, the programme will feature a Q&A with John O'Neill, guitarist with The Undertones.
A creative session will help you make your own musical instrument before lyric and songwriting development sessions with musicians from across the country.
How will it work?
- Listen as author Stuart Bailie interviews The Undertones guitarist John O'Neill and take part in a live Q&A session
- Create your own musical instrument with household objects in a session led by artist facilitator Ed Devane
- Learn the art of songwriting and work with a musician to create a new piece of music
- Listen to a live online gig of finished songs from leading NI musicians
- Join an online community through Slack to share experiences and connect with others
*You do not need to have any musical experience to take part in this project.
