Each year we collaborate with students on the Performance Design and Practice course at Central Saint Martins. Inspired by our Sinfonietta Shorts, students on the course create short films in close collaboration with the composers and players, which are then shown live with their music counterpart. Sinfonietta Shorts are snapshots of music by the leading composers of our time that we commission, record and release as downloads.
Collaborating with the London Sinfonietta is one of the most inspiring and joyful experiences for our students…the possibilities for inter-disciplinary expression is enormous. New forms of expression and ideas are only found in such in-between spaces, and Performance Design and Practice at CSM seek these out. The calibre of the London Sinfonietta allows our students to truly go beyond what is expected.
