Made in Aldeburgh

Aldeburgh Music is as much a retreat where artists can create new work as it is a venue. The organisation has new work at its heart and is one of the UK’s leading facilitators in music and other arts. Watch the most recent work created here below.

Kit Downes & Tom Challenger

Inspired by the huge variety of organs and church acoustics in Suffolk to create 'Vyamanikal'.

The Society of Strange and Ancient Instruments

Creating 'Sound House' from the experiments of Francis Bacon.
