TYCI chats to Anna Meredith



Last week, award-winning and celebrated composer Anna Meredith led a four-day residency as part of Brighter Sound‘s Artistic Director Series in Manchester. Alongside guitarist and composer Jack Ross, and visual artist Eleanor Meredith, the residency provided an opportunity for young and emerging female musicians and multidisciplinary artists to collaborate and create new work inspired by the Wonder Materials:Graphene and Beyond exhibition at the Museum of Science and Industry.
