‘Originally founded in 2000 at the Royal College of Music, the CPS has become an internationally distinctive centre for research, teaching, and knowledge exchange in music performance science. Now, nearly two decades on, we are opening a new chapter in performance science: a cross-institutional partnership between the Royal College of Music and Imperial College London. Performance is at the very core of progress in the arts, business, education, medicine, science, and sport. Increasingly, new methods and technologies are emerging that allow us to understand better how and why we perform and the reasons we find great performances so compelling.’

www.langhamresearch.co.uk

‘A group devoted to auth­entic perfor­mances of classic electronic music, and the creation of new music from their instru­ment­arium of vintage analogue devices ... Langham Research Centre first got together in August 2003, at which point we were all producers at BBC Radio 3. BBC national radio is based in Langham Place in London, which we took for our name ... As well as composing our own music, we have a passion for realising works by great 20th century composers like John Cage, Alvin Lucier, Earle Browne and others, particularly those works which can only be performed by a group working with vintage technology like reel-to-reel tape, phonograph cartridges and oscillators.’

‘We are a UK Charity. Our aim is to preserve, promote and celebrate the causes of jazz in the UK and beyond. We also interview musicians and other jazz icons! ... “People have died for jazz" said the legendary trumpeter John Birks 'Dizzy’ Gillespie" - and you still have a problem calling it 'serious music?'" The great British tenorist Alan Skidmore echoed the thought on a recent visit to 'The Jazz Centre (UK)'. "I've given six decades of my life to this art-form" he said " - and I appreciate its full celebration in words and deeds". Our Trustees believe him. And while we have a long way to go we believe that “The Jazz Centre (UK)” can soon remove the brackets from its last two letters.’
