Platform South is a Jazz South programme. Platform South bands represent quality and exciting artist talent from the South, selected by industry representatives including regional and national jazz promoters.
DUE TO COVID 19 WE HAVE MADE A CHANGE TO THIS PROGRAMME
PLATFORM SOUTH COMMISSIONS
While live performances and touring are not feasible at this time we have instead commissioned each of the bands to complete their time on the scheme by creating a new audio work for digital broadcast.
These new audio works were featured alongside interviews with the bands in a 6-part podcast series with Kevin Le Gendre, Jazz South Spotlight, in autumn 2020. Listen to the full series: www.jazzsouth.org.uk/spotlightpodcasts
Platform South Commissions is part of Jazz South Commissions, a new three-part programme offering over £30,000 towards commission projects for composers working in jazz and improvisation in the Jazz South Region.
We won’t be taking any more promoter bookings for the bands, but you can find out more about the schemes below and how you can get involved to support an early career composer.
