Composer Iannis Xenakis encouraged all communities to be involved in music making, and at BCMG we share the same view! In the lead up to what would be his 100th Birthday, join us for a FREE family fun afternoon of composing and digital drawing.

Participants will use the digital software Synethesia to draw musical scores, selected scores will be instrumentated and performed in concert on 29 May 2022 by BCMG musicians. Take part and become part of something very special.

This workshop is recommended for all ages.

Participants to our February Music Maze and Drawing Scoring will get FREE tickets to CBSO's Youth Orchestra Concert that takes place after Drawing Scoring! Read more about it: CBSO Youth Orchestra

Iannis Xenakis 100


In celebration of revolutionary composer Iannis Xenakis’s centenary, Birmingham Contemporary Music Group have created a festival for all senses, with partners from Sound and Music, University of Birmingham, and PRiSM (Royal Northern College of Music).

We are proud to celebrate the communal and creative beliefs of Xenakis, by sharing music from young participants in Birmingham and showing the beauty of maths through sensory visuals and sounds.

Join us in the afternoon for a family drop-in session; Drawing Scoring, talks from our partners at University of Birmingham and PRiSM, and for an invigorating performance from our musicians in the evening.

This will be a wonderful day of activity culminating in an evening performance of electro acoustic music by BCMG and BEAST. Tickets to the music and maths festival on 29 May.

Booking for this event has now closed.
