Children & Young People
We are developing creative workshops for schools & youth groups, using electronics and digital technology with music and the arts.
The work from the Lab will also cross-over with Tinderbox’s other programmes, such as its youth orchestras, music hubs, and workshops in schools, hospitals and community settings.

Commissions, Projects & Partnerships
We are keen to work with people and organisations to build and develop exciting new ideas and projects.  If you are interested in working with us, please contact

Some projects currently in development include:
– Bespoke digital instruments & hardware for the Tinderbox Orchestra.
– VST / plugin of unusual orchestral sounds and effects for composers & producers.
– “Gloam in 5 Parts” – an interactive orchestral recording and original composition, in collaboration with Biome Collective.

Residency Projects
We are keen to develop a residency programme at the Tinderbox lab in the future.  If you are interested in working with us on this, please contact
