Get curious with sound
CLIP are an award winning social enterprise who support, enable and empower young people to take creative risks and create exciting new music. Based in North Essex, our free accessible music workshops support young creatives to explore new technologies and get curious with sound in supportive and encouraging environments, ensuring self-perceived ability is never a barrier to entry. CLIP’s innovative range of music instruments offers exciting new accessible ways of making electronic music, and in turn generating income which supports our social cause.
CLIP was founded by artists Frazer Merrick and Simon Keep in 2017, beginning as an informal meet-up at Firstsite in Colchester as part of Tate’s ‘Circuit’ programme which examined how galleries can support positive change for young people. Since then CLIP has run a music club at the gallery delivering curious, inspiring and innovative youth music projects such as; going behind scenes at Colchester Zoo to record the animals, performing Terry Riley’s In C whilst in the sea, and circuit bending old keyboards which won the international Maker Music Festival.
