Sing City – Video Jam Summer 2016

  • Wednesday | 22.06.16
  • 6.00pm
  • Band on the Wall, Manchester

Sing City launches a new exciting collaboration with Video Jam, exploring music and sound in film in a month of exciting workshops and a showcase performance. 

Hailed as “one of Manchester’s most innovative nights” (Manchester Wire), Video Jam is an ongoing series of unique events that re-examine the relationship between moving image and live sound.

The workshops will put particular emphasis on the experimental, using independent moving image by emerging and professional artists. Over the course of four weeks, participants will compose an original soundtrack of their own interpretation, resulting in what Video Jam call ‘Blind Collaboration’. The soundtracks will then be performed at Sing City Live on Wednesday 29 June.  

Open to 13-18’s.  Free event, places limited. Must book ( in advance.
Please note, participants are expected to attend all four workshops and the final performance.

Full workshop dates: Weds: 1, 8,15, 22 Jun. 6-8pm.
Performance: Weds 29 Jun, 7-9pm. (Book a ticket for the performance.)

Sing City is a songwriting and vocal collective for 13-18’s. Weekly Wednesday evening sessions are led by a team of professional musicians, as well as a number of guest musicians. Sessions explore songwriting, composition, instrumental techniques, music production, music industry insights as well as a number of performance opportunities across Manchester.  Contact for more information.
