Next-generation creativity

Georgia Ellery of Jockstrap selects the best new music emerging from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London for Verity Sharp.

Georgia Ellery and Taylor Skye formed Jockstrap when they met as students at London’s Guildhall School of Music & Drama and together they create a woozy hybrid of pop, electronic and classical music.

Georgia talks to Verity about the experimental scene fostered at the Guildhall and selects some of her favourite tracks made by her peers.

Elsewhere on the programme: new music from Faith Elliot, composer Keeril Makan explores the sonorities of the piano with a new piece inspired by his baby daughter, and Sarah Angliss’ new music for a 14th-century relative of the harpsichord.

Produced by Freya Hellier.
A Reduced Listening production for BBC Radio 3.
