About the Programme

Embedded is a Sound and Music composer and creative artist development programme. Funded by The Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and the PRS for Music Foundation, Embedded places a selection of composers from a range of disciplines into extended relationships with leading national arts organisations.

Aimed at talented composers and creative artists. Embedded is a bespoke professional development programme, providing practical hands-on experience and a range of significant creative opportunities. So far over thirty composers have benefited from Embedded, and there is overwhelming evidence that it can be a transformational experience in terms of talent development, artistic ambition, professional experience and growing networks.
