About

CoMA Glasgow is the first CoMA ensemble in Scotland.

It kick-started on Sunday 10 November 2019 with an afternoon event of playing and discussion. The event was well attended with those interested becoming members and a few who were excited about the ideas of CoMA and just wanted to join for a one-off event. You can here recordings of the workshop here.

Three rehearsals were held in the early part of 2020 in preparation for the Festival of Contemporary Music for All with more musicians participating at the weekend.

CoMA Glasgow will eventually grow into a large new music collective with members of all abilities, who will be invited to actively influence the future development of the group.

We can’t meet physically at the moment, so have moved our second project online.

You Create

Online Composition and Performing project

Our second project will be online and interactive from home. Led by composer Dr Ruta Vitkauskaite, the project invites musicians of all instruments, composers and sound creators to come together to create and perform a collaborative and unique piece of contemporary music for the lockdown-generation. The piece will be developed over 4 workshop sessions via the video calling platform Zoom, and will culminate in the final edited composition being streamed online. The 4 workshop sessions are:

  • Thursday 28 May 2020, 7-9pm BST (British Summer Time – GMT+1:00)
  • Tuesday 2 June 2020, 7-9pm BST
  • Monday 8 June 2020, 7-9pm BST
  • Thursday 18 June 2020, 7-9pm BST

The final recorded composition will be streamed online on Saturday 20 June 2020 at 4pm BST.

Cost – Pay What You Can Afford

We want to ensure that ‘Contemporary Music for All’ is truly accessible to everyone, especially in this challenging economic climate, so this project is run on a pay what you can afford model.
