For this composition project, we invite you to create music for an extract from a piece of choreography called ‘Stronghold’, performed by a trio of dancers from Visual Poets, a hip hop dance crew based in Brighton.

‘Stronghold’ by Visual Poets

In the video below, we offer some tips and advice for approaching the brief. Watch for some guidance and pointers as you begin composing. Musical responses to the brief can be found in the remaining videos in the playlist.


You can also download some written guidance, including further information about the choreography and ideas for approaching the project, in our useful links below.
