Young Producers is a new project for young people who have taken part in Making Tracks, supported by the Arts Patron Trust. Our Young Producers Müqzz and Pedro are collaborating to put on a gig involving other young people and will be blogging about the process.
On our third day at Young Producers, we attended the Sounding Out gig. The Fish Police were the first act to perform and I was blown away with the performance. It was quite odd, something I’ve never seen before. The sounds were great and I could see the whole crowd bopping. I never knew who they were, which gave me high expectation, but they managed to meet.
I managed to see all the acts before the actual gig at rehearsals and I was lost for words by the songs that Inside Out were going to perform. No words can do any justice but I have to say Alcoholic is my favourite song. It’s a song that gets you thinking, deep and has a strong message. I like songs with a story and a meaning behind it and I was glad to hear that song. Seeing it in rehearsals and then seeing it on the day, the song was bought to life and I could see the crowd enjoying it.
Before the Inside Out performance, Phaedra, a violinist group performed. Classical music isn’t really my cup of tea but their performance was amazing. It was something that I’ve never seen before, I’m used to listening to more contemporary music.
What I’ve learnt about the event was the different styles of artists that performed. Some of the songs had strong meanings and it told a story. It made me ponder about my experiences and gave me inspiration to write songs when I got home.
