Music wants to be free

In July 2007 Open Music Archive will be resident at Cornerhouse, Manchester's international centre for contemporary arts.

For two weeks Eileen Simpson & Ben White will be producing a series of live events and programmes for a temporary FM radio station broadcasting across Manchester and promoted to the UK and internationally.

We’re inviting bands and musicians to respond to the rare out-of-copyright folk, blues, and jazz from the Open Music Archive. It’s a unique opportunity to get to know and work with forgotten lyrics, chords, melodies and beats - to make covers and new versions of old tracks.

For two weeks the gallery will host live plugged and unplugged performances and one-off broadcasts by Manchester’s finest upcoming and established bands and musicians.

Bands and musicians are now being selected and projects are in development for July 2007. Email us for details:
