Welcome to the Portfolio: Ludi Guitar Quartet Application Form
As part of Sound and Music’s Portfolio programme Adrian Lee and the Ludi Quartet South West aim to bring together up to 3 player and non-player composers alike to explore the potential of this entirely new, contemporary ensemble medium and develop new works for electric guitar quartet.

This professional development opportunity is focused on your artistic development.

Both Sound and Music and The Ludi Quartet Kernow will provide support to help you explore your ideas and creative practice. 

The works will be developed across workshops in Cornwall in autumn 2016 and spring 2017 and will be premiered as part of Truro Festival 2017.
