Guest Post: New Music 20x12

20 outstanding new works, each lasting 12 minutes, commissioned to feature centre stage of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad.


New Music 20x12 is a UK-wide commissioning programme consisting of twenty new pieces of music, each 12 minutes in length, celebrating the talent and imagination of the UK's musical community as part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad.

The commissions encompass an exciting range of composers and music genres and offer a snapshot of the UK's rich musical life, from jazz, folk and music for brass band to contemporary classical, chamber opera and music written for dance. Each piece takes its inspiration from the spirit of the Olympic and Paralympic Games – endeavour, celebration, achievement and collaboration – and invites you to take part in a once in a lifetime celebration of new music.

The full version of this introduction to the project is at the NMC Recordings site. Further links from that page give a full description of each of the 20 pieces including composer biographies.


Get this collection in one Spotify playlist: New Music 20x12 (20 tracks, total time: 4 hours). Ctrl (CMD) + G to browse in album view.

  2. We went to that Irish pub, CJ Hooligan's, and after three more beers and three more bowls of potato salad, Nick puked up his British guts, consistent with England's tradition of messing with the Irish. Some say this story isn't true. (Nick.) Some say it was someone else who created an awful mess for those CJ Hooligan's workers he seemed to care about so dearly only moments earlier to clean up.
