Swimming with music, the London Aquatics Centre Stratford
Published 14 November 2015 by JT


Hallo ,
For the last 9 or so months I have been involved in a great collaboration between the University of East London, Sound and Music and Bigga Fish for UFest , the London Youth Festival.
We have all been working together to create opportunities for the students at UEL to perform new music works in the London Aquatics Centre in Stratford.Swimming with music is a week long series of performances in the the Aquatics Centre, Stratford.The music students from University of East London have been working over 7 weeks to create original live music compositions which are to be performed while the general public are swimming. During the project our students have been mentored by professional musicians Shiva Feshareki , MatthaisKispert ,Tim Murray- Browne, and Jackie Walduck.

I have led the project for UEL in with collaborators Sound and Music and Bigga Fish.

There are four groups of students and each day they are performing a different work from 4-6pm in the pool.
If you fancy coming along to listen to one of the performances the groups are as follows
