The RCM Electronic Music Society presents a programme of works inspired by diversity and protest.

In this exciting new concert curation, members will premiere their works inspired by the theme of ‘protest’. The composers have responded to the topic in a variety of ways, drawing upon subjects meaningful to them, and ultimately bringing a unique perspective on issues regarding animal rights, global politics, freedom of speech, mental health and many other equally thought-provoking subjects inextricably linked to ideas of protest.
