Figurenotes projects have led to nominations in FOUR categories of the Scottish Awards for New Music 2020.

Diversions, written by Ben Lunn, was performed by Drake Music Scotland’s Digital Orchestra and Hebrides Ensemble. The Queen’s Hall in Edinburgh was the setting for this accessible concert of new works.

Figurenotes was used by some members of the Digital Orchestra alongside their colleagues using standard notation. These fantastic musicians created some phenomenal new music that has been duly recognised in four categories:

The RCS Award for Contribution to New Music in Scotland

The ISM prize for Collaboration

The RCS Award for Making it Happen

The SMIA Award for Creative Programming

We wish Ben Lunn, Hebrides Ensemble, Drake Music Scotland, and the Digital Orchestra all the luck in the world for the award ceremony. We have everything crossed for you!
