EP21: Gavin Higgins | Using music as a self therapy
Marc delves into the extraordinary career of composer Gavin Higgins, hailed by critics as "boldly imaginative," "a talent to watch," and "one of the most interesting voices of his generation."   Born in Gloucestershire in 1983, Higgins' musical journey began at Chetham’s School of Music and continued through prestigious institutions like The Royal Northern College of Music and the Royal College of Music.   His portfolio boasts remarkable compositions, including the acclaimed "Der Aufstand" and "Velocity" premiered at the BBC Proms, and the Ivor Novello Award-winning trombone concerto, "The Book of Miracles." Notable for his diverse range, Higgins' works span from operas like "The Monstrous Child" to dynamic brass pieces deeply rooted in his working-class brass band heritage.  As the inaugural Music Fellow for the Rambert Dance Company, Higgins crafted mesmerising ballet scores, earning accolades for works like "Dark Arteries." His debut album, "Ekstasis," showcases his chamber music prowess, described as "seductively sinewy" and "sensuously gritty."   Gavin talks about how being diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome and OCD as a child helped him use music a self therapy, as well as the challenges around general misconceptions of Tourette’s.   With the UK's arts and culture sector facing mounting challenges, including funding constraints and limited opportunities, Marc and Gavin explore the imperative need for broader conversations, particularly surrounding diversity and class representation within the arts.   They explore the personal growth and development fostered by music engagement, regardless of proficiency level or instrument choice. While underscoring the pressing need for increased funding, support, and investment in both music education and accessible venues, we also spotlight the transformative potential of community-driven initiatives. 00:00:00 - Episode Begins - Intro to Gavin 00:05:21 - Musical Education 00:07:41 - Brass Bands 00:10:59 - Chetham Music School 00:15:15 - Royal Northern College of Music 00:17:45 - Early Compositions 00:22:44 - Moving to London 00:27:31 - Financial challenges of pursuing a career in music 00:33:44 - Class representation in the arts 00:41:00 - What can be done to get kids more musically engaged? 00:47:12 - Tourette Syndrome 01:02:06 - Venues 01:07:17 - Finding Inspiration and Creative Process 01:14:19 - How do you compose for a whole orchestra? 01:20:26 - Awards Find out more about Gavin on his website.

EP017: Annie Pye | When do we develop our musical senses? (full episode)
When do we Develop our Musical Senses? Annie Pye, lecturer in the psychology of music at Manchester University joins us in this episode, where we unravel the nuances of prenatal and newborn musical development. Delving into the age-old tradition of singing to babies and children, we explore the profound impact it has on their cognitive and emotional growth. We deep dive into the intricacies of voice perception in babies, shedding light on how infants tune into the unique cadences that surround them. We also examine the age-old question: Does exposing children to Mozart's compositions truly enhance their intelligence? Our exploration extends to the fascinating realm of pitch perception, demystifying why some individuals find it challenging to sing in tune. Uncover the secrets of perfect pitch and understand the mechanisms that underlie this remarkable ability. As we navigate through the tapestry of musical development, we shine a spotlight on temporal perception, exploring how children interpret rhythm and timing. Venturing into the emotional landscape of infancy, Annie discusses the development of emotional responses to music, showcasing the power of melodies to evoke profound feelings in the youngest listeners. Our exploration also touches upon the phenomenon of spontaneous singing in children, highlighting the natural inclination for self-expression through song. The joys and challenges of parenthood take centre stage as we examine the delicate balance between nature and nurture in shaping a child's musical aptitude. Whether you're a parent, educator, or a curious soul intrigued by the harmonious interplay between music and child development, this episode promises a rich tapestry of knowledge and insights. 00:00:00 - Episode Begins 00:01:13 - Intro to Annie 00:05:37 - Annie's Course 00:07:34 - Prenatal and Newborn Musical Development 00:11:53 - Why is it Important to Sing to Babies and Children? 00:17:52 - Voice Perception 00:19:21 - Does Mozart Increase Intelligence? 00:21:50 - Pitch Perception 00:30:28 - Why Can't Some People Sing in Tune? 00:32:24 - Perfect Pitch 00:35:29 - Temporal Perception 00:38:42 - Sensitivity to Rhythm 00:40:18 - Development of Emotional Response to Music 00:46:22 - Spontaneous Singing 00:51:28 - Challenges of Parenthood 00:58:51 - Nature vs Nurture Links to follow up after: Northern Network for Empirical Music Research Email Annie: annie.pye@manchester.ac.uk For more episodes of the High Point podcast, follow⁠⁠ ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠this link⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠ or ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠this one⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠ for Youtube⁠⁠. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Following Atelier Crescendo or the High Point podcast -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- To follow the High Point podcast on Instagram, follow ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠this link⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠.

EP015 (Full Episode): Wayne Hemingway | Placemaking and Fashion Design
Wayne Hemingway, renowned designer and co-founder of fashion label Red or Dead, embarked on a fascinating journey from the world of fashion to becoming a pioneering figure in the realm of placemaking. Wayne's initial success with Red or Dead catapulted him into the limelight of the fashion industry. However, his passion for design extended beyond clothing; it encompassed a deep-rooted interest in shaping spaces and communities. The shift from fashion to placemaking was propelled by a desire to create meaningful and impactful change in urban landscapes. He recognised the power of design in shaping human experiences and sought to channel his creative energy into projects that would transform communities. Collaborating closely with locals, he created sustainable environments that celebrated the area's identity. In this episode, we delve into Wayne’s career, exploring how his design prowess transcended fashion. From reimagining the uniforms for Transport for London to revolutionising urban spaces in Gateshead, join us as we unravel the fusion of creativity and community in Hemingway’s transformative projects.

How on earth is that going to work acoustically? (Extract of EP012: The Theatreship project with Inigo Lapwood)
Extract of Episode 012 of the High Point podcast with Inigo Lapwood on the Theatreship project. ----------------------------------------------------- Welcome aboard the only net zero theatre in the world! Moored up in the historic docks of Canary Wharf, Theatreship will contribute to the exciting new development of the area, while reflecting and preserving local history. This space will support and celebrate a range of art forms: from western orchestral music to Bengali cinema; from classics of queer theatre to local contemporary art; from academic lectures to theatrical workshops for kids. Globally recognised artists will perform alongside local and underrepresented creatives, drawing new people to the area and engaging the existing community. Marc catches up with Inigo Lapwood, an expert in restoration and repair of historic steel ships and discusses: Where did the ship come from?How will it be converted into a Theatre?Why is the history of the area so important?How do you control the acoustics within a giant metal tube?Creating the world’s first net-zero theatre (not just at sea!)
