Zeta Potential Recording
Over the course of 2010-2012, 24 young composers took part in the innovative European Composers’ Professional Development Programme. Developed by hcmf, the programme offered some of the most gifted up-and-coming composers (selected from universities and conservatoires in the UK, Italy and The Netherlands) the opportunity to collaborate with a leading new music ensemble in a country other than their own. The composers spent a series of intensive weekends visiting and working with the Nieuw Ensemble (NL), Ensemble 10/10 (UK) or Icarus Ensemble (IT), before having their works premiered at hcmf. Zeta Potential is a collection of 21 original works which materialised from this programme. The European Composers' Professional Development Programme was funded by European Commission Culture Programme and the Musicians Benevolent Fund.
