GENERATIONS: NITRO IGNITES
Nitro Ignites was a summer programme supported by Youth Music where young people aged 14 – 18 from around the ‘Market Road’ area worked with a team of professional music artists to create their own music, by learning how to play a range of instruments, singing, song-writing, rapping and music production in preparation for two showcase events at the end of the summer of 2011. The first was part of the Platform Festival in July and the second took place at the beginning of September at Nitro HQ!
The content of their show was themed around both modern and historical stories from the Market Road Estate. This was performed by those living on and around this specific area.
The workshops ran once weekly starting Monday 6th June – Monday 4.30pm – 6.00pm until, September 2011. It specialised in teaching young people aged 14 – 18 a range of skills as young musicians; specifically teaching them the basics of learning how to play an instrument as well as skills in music production, singing, rapping, song writing and performance.
Here’s our exclusive video footage of the project and the final performance held here at Nitro HQ in September 2011!
