"As part of this year’s UniSlam competition, my teammate Matt and I wrote and performed a poem about our respective hometowns. The poem is about the
love yet disconnect we have for our hometowns, and the yearning we experienced when moving away."
- Emily Breeds and Matt Sowerby
Premiering at the Summer Festival 2020, this project allowed members of Creative Exchange to explore collaborative composition. A particular highlight of the concert was
the premiere of a composition for single use plastic by Helen Cordina.
"The video is a timelapse of a painting of 'Old Joe', it took 2 months and was a way for me to occupy myself during the first lockdown and remain connected to the UoB community
while we were stuck at home and scattered all over the country/world." - Hannah Beech
The second collaborative composition project run by Creative Exchange was premiered in March 2021 and featured several compositions written specifically for an
asynchronous medium such as Zoom.
