New Logo? Who Dis?

The Rattle is heading into 2020 with a whole new look. But first let’s to a little Rattle roundup and look back at some of the magic collective moments from 2019. 

Throwing it back to June, Rattle Live brought us out of hiding to take over E1 London in full force. It was (as ever) a proper celebration of art, community and The Rattle as a whole. Massive love to everyone who performed. More videos here!

This year The Rattle has had over 50 releases, 15 of which were debut singles. Berne released their debut single Oceans, and paired with an unforgettable release party in the space, a true display of collective power. With performances, sound, tech and a whole load of love and support from fellow Rattlers. We also got to see a preview for their music video featuring British Sign Language Performer Tyron Woolfe!

And, special kudos to Alex Parsons for scoring two BAFTA nominated tv series this year, as well as being nominated for a Music Sound Award in the Best Original Composition in a Television Programme category.

Vochlea‘s entire 2019 seemed to be a stream of highlights – Going above and beyond their fundraising goals, selling out on pre orders of their Dubler Studio Kits and to top it off they won the 2019 Web Summit Music Innovation Award. BOOM.

BBC Introducing Live 2019 was a mega success and we finally have some videos to go with it! We sent a whole newsletter out about it thought, so I won’t ramble on. But, in short we had a tonne of panels and performances that blew us all away. Big Peyote’s performance is above and you can see the rest here.

Several Rattlers were awarded funding from Help Musicians, Arts Council and PRS this year. With Bishi becoming the lead commissioned artist for Delia Derbyshire Day 2019. Bishi has since been writing and composing an EP ‘The Telescope Eye,’ supported by The ‘Women Make Music’ fund.

Laid Bare launched their record label from The Rattle. Since launching 2 months ago they have already seen some amazing successes. Zach Said’s single was instantly added to New Music Friday on Spotify, Vicky Sometani reached number 4 in the iTunes charts and they’ve had a whole bunch of incredible shows.

Last but not least, Jenna Whelan was selected as one of four composers to take part in the IMRO RTÉ Scoring For Film Programme. She composed the score for short film HEDY, due for release in 2020 with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra. To top it all off, Jenna has also launched new sync company Pyramids.

?2020 is gonna be a big one. Have a fab Christmas and an insane New Year ?
