Bridges is a special collaboration with composer Mark-Anthony Turnage, photographer Lizzie Coombes, and groups of musicians from our three programmes Music in Prisons, Sounding Out and Making Tracks, to celebrate 21 years of the Irene Taylor Trust with a new piece of music. Watch the accompanying film by Lizzie Coombes and Andy Wood below:

As part of our 21st Year Celebrations we wanted to create a lasting memorial to our work to date, which would draw together the three strands of our work, Music in Prisons, Sounding Out and Making Tracks. Following a very successful collaboration with Turnage, Coombes and Wood in 2012 on the piece Beyond This, it seemed the obvious solution was to get the band back together for an even more ambitious project!

An exhibition of photographs by Lizzie Coombes taken during the creation of Bridges is showing at the Free Word Centre, Farringdon, until 30th January 2017. Visiting info here.
