Monday 12th October 2015

Composers are being challenged to compose a work out of 140 notes or less as a sort of pun on twitter.

Professionals are finding it difficult to compose such condensed compositions, although it has been revealed that Bach and Beethoven amongst other great composers also took up the challenge.

William Harvey took the sounds of a bomb attack in Kabul in 2014 and translated them into something a string quartet could play. The result was an experience which a headline or standard 140 character tweet could not convey.
