We are happy to announce, that the winner of the 2017/18 Noted Fellowship is Ben Corrigan with his extraordinary podcast “excuse the mess”!

“We chose Ben Corrigan as this year’s winner because his podcast has an innovative and cogent approach to the realities and difficulties of the classical music market today. It is entertaining, intellectually demanding and whets the appetite for classical and contemporary music. I am very pleased to work alongside his project in the coming year.”
(Carolin Denz – Director, Noted Fellowship)

 

 

Ben Corrigan’s podcast is unique in the classical music market. Not only does he invite composers to talk about their new works and discuss their opinions on the classical music industry, but he joins them in composing a completely new piece of music “off the cuff” at the end of each episode.

Corrigan does everything himself – from the conceptual design of the individual podcasts to the recording and technical implementation. His goal is to complete the first podcast series excuse the mess by the end of 2018 and to publish an album with the newly created compositions.

The podcast is currently in development and within the next year, with the support, help and input of selected mentors from Noted Fellowship, Corrigan will further develop his podcast and music album in terms of content and structure. Furthermore, he will receive a financial support from Noted of 5,000€.

(Written on April 5, 2018 )

The first podcast from Noted has been released, following the Noted Roundtable on Inclusion and Diversity.

Noted Round-ups are short podcasts that follow the Noted Roundtables – an international series which looks to bring about change in the performing arts industry through discussion and implementation. Through Noted, we want to generate new solutions to industry problems, not just with our own industry members and artists, but with brand leaders from different fields, and also—most importantly—the audience! The Roundtables bring together this unique combination of stakeholders on an equal footing.

The very first Noted Round-ups episode is a discussion on what was originally “diversity”, but now referred to as “inclusivity”. Here we discuss minorities in the performing arts industry, focusing on those backstage (not on stage), covering race, gender, background, and more.

We came out of this session with the following action points:

  • When recruiting, be more explicit about what we don’t want or need (e.g. an arts degree), and present the image of our ideal candidate in the advertising
  • Either ensure that job titles clearly state what the position is, or make them more sexy and fun
  • Create inclusive communities in the performing arts administrative sector, spanning across both audiences and potential employees
  • Showcase the exciting elements of our industry, through podcasts, videos, partnerships with mainstream brands
  • Shake up internal systems – reverse mentoring, creative sessions led by interns, engage more with outside the industry

This episode is hosted by Kathleen Alder and Olivia Brown, produced and edited by Olivia.
