- Emerging contemporary artists from Coventry, Birmingham, Wolverhampton and the West Midlands will be among the first in the country to have samples of their current work permanently stored in the British Library music archive.
This is because they have been selected for a new website which showcases the very best new independent music from the West Midlands.
The PILOT PROJECT website – www.pilot-project.co.uk – went live Thursday, November 18 in Birmingham, at 7pm.
Music on the site will be accessible to stream, and the site database is fully searchable. The music and data will also be stored permanently in the British Library’s music archive as part of the British Library’s New Music Network. This aims to document contemporary British independent music of all types as it is made available through websites, blogs and other digital platforms.
