Embedded is a Sound and Music composer and creative artist development programme. Funded by The Esmée Fairbairn 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 at an early stage in their career, Embedded is a bespoke programme, providing practical hands-on experience and a range of significant creative opportunities. So far nearly twenty 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.

As part of Sound and Music’s Embedded programme, we are currently offering three residency calls, BCMG, Manchester Camerata and Red Note.

Red Note is Scotland’s contemporary music ensemble, dedicated to developing and performing contemporary music to the highest standards, and taking the music out to audiences around and beyond Scotland.

Founded in 2008 by Scottish cellist Robert Irvine, Red Note are directed by John Harris (Chief Executive and Artistic Co-Director) and Robert Irvine (Artistic Co-Director). Red Note perform the established classics of contemporary music; they commission new music; they develop the work of new and emerging composers from around the world; and they find new spaces and new ways of performing contemporary music to attract new audiences.

Their performing ensemble is drawn from the deep talent pool of Scottish new music expertise, and they count amongst their players some of the very finest performers working in the UK today. They undertake a Spring and Autumn season each year in Scotland comprising tours, site-specific work and collaborations with other companies, and run a regular new music series showcasing the work of new composers (Noisy Nights and Noisy Words) in partnership with the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh.

Red Note are also extensively involved in the education sector, particularly at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow, at Glasgow University and in collaboration with Woodend Barn and the Sound Festival, Aberdeen, where they also run the Go Compose composition course in collaboration with Sound and Music. Red Note are actively developing multiple cross-artform collaborations and new work with companies abroad and are delighted to be Associate Contemporary Ensemble at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow, and an Associate Company of the Traverse Theatre.
