Contemporary music in the UK and Ireland is crying out for a magazine like Sounds Like Now

Joe Cutler- Composer

Great to have a place to find news and experiences from other composers and performers in the contemporary music world

Charlotte Bray

The UK’s new music scene has a decent grapevine, but not even Marvin Gaye heard everything that way. For years now, I’ve wondered why we don’t have a ‘town square’ or forum for all the brilliant, crazy, wondrous, damaged, and just plain skilful and musical work being done here. This is a great initiative

“EdEd McKeon
Director, Third Ear music producers

NMC relishes the opportunity of working with Sounds Like Now to share our work, and to learn from others who are as passionate and committed to contemporary classical music as we are

Anne Rushton - Executive Directer, NMC RecordingsAnne Rushton
Executive Director, NMC Recordings

A great addition to the growing interest and conversations around contemporary classical music

“KatieKatie Tearle Director of New Music and Nicholas Riddle, CEO, Edition Peters Group

This is a very exciting initiative and provides an excellent forum for the huge wealth of UK compositional talent. We at BASCA are more than happy to support this!

“GARYGary Carpenter
Chairman, Classical Executive Committee and BASCA Director

Sounds Like Now has real potential to further enrich the already vibrant world of contemporary music

Deborah Annetts - ISMDeborah Annetts
Chief Executive, Incorporated Society of Musicians

We really need this kind of focus so that those who share an interest in the new will know where to look and can explore in greater depth what’s happening and who’s doing it.

“MichaelMichael McCarthy
Music Theatre Wales

This is a great opportunity both to show how lively the new music scene is and to open it up to a new audience.
