MATTHEW HERBERT | MUSIC FOR A BUSY CITY 

Music for a Busy City took six leading composers out of the concert hall and into Manchester to make music for the spaces through which we pass every day.

This pioneering project featured six new pieces of music, each created in response to a specific space in Manchester – from shopping centres and train stations to the Town Hall. Up to 10 minutes long, these recorded pieces became part of the spaces that inspired them so audiences could journey around town and hear each one in succession.

Commissioned as a series of films for Manchester International Festival, this artist spotlight film reveals the process and passion behind Matthew Herbert's music.
