Field Music’s Peter and David Brewis are to host a Brighter Sound residency in their hometown of Sunderland in November. As with other such events, it will see the musicians working with emerging artists over the course of a week, exploring their creative process and creating a collaborative recording.

Speaking about the event, David Brewis says: “At some point, quite early on, we realised that no one was going to show us how to make the records we wanted to make – slowly and awkwardly we had to figure it out ourselves. I hope this project will be the kind of thing we needed back in 2001 – maybe a bit of inspiration, a few technical tips, a little kick up the arse and the fun of trying things out with a bunch of other musicians in a similar boat”.

Ten musicians and songwriters will be chosen to take part in the sessions, which will take place from 13-17 Nov. For more information and to apply, click here. The deadline is 8 Oct.
