Two of the Flash Up! musicians contributing music for the Flash Up! street performances (taking place during Artsfest on 8-9 September) came along to Music Potential at the new Birmingham Ormiston Academy in Aston yesterday to explain how to get involved with Flash Up! and share ideas on how to perform their music.
Kirsty Devaney and Becky Woodcock delivered a drop-in session to enthusiastic Music Potential attendees who were interested in finding out whether their skills as musicians, vocalists and spoken word artists might be suitable. The answer, yes!
With a broad range of skills, instruments and ideas there is something for all young people who are interested in developing their musicianship…check out the links to the wide variety of Flash Up! music on our Flash Up! soundcloud set on http://soundcloud.com/ontheedgefusionyouthorch as well as the lyrical zeal of spoken word poetess Deanna Rodger http://youtu.be/S-27rfzk7DE and decide for yourself whether you would like to perform one of the pieces of music provided by Flash Up! musicians and spoken word artist or, if you’re feeling bold and brave, submit your own composition and perform it instead. If you’re a singer, use the music as a stimulus to write your lyrics and sing over. We’d like to hear from anyone who wants to test their creativity and push their skills.
Thanks again to our friends at Punch Records for helping us take part in Music Potential.
