At the heart of our melting pot of musicians and ideas is the Emulsion Sinfonietta – a colourful line-up of trumpet, violin, clarinets, saxes, oboe/cor anglais, cello, bassoon, electric guitar, piano, bass and drum kit. A happy by-product of several Emulsion festivals, to date it has premiered 17 new works – you can listen here. Two of these works have gone on to win BASCA British Composer Awards in the Contemporary Jazz Category (Joe Cutler’s ‘Karembeu’s Guide to the Complete Defensive Midfielder’ – 2016; Cevanne Horrocks-Hopayian’s ‘Muted Lines’ – 2017).
