Oldham College Music & Album Design Project 2022
From the cinematic soundscape of Glass Trees and the anarchic energy of Green Grass, to the soulful indie vibe of Wave Goodbye, this is the sound of Northern Roots!
Earlier this year, Northern Roots asked Music and Art students at Oldham College to respond to a competitive creative brief and create original music tracks and album cover artwork. They had a choice of themes: ‘Where the Wild Things Are’, evoking the natural world of the 160-acre Northern Roots site, and the ‘Secret Lives of Northern Roots’, which celebrates the heritage of the site.
The project builds on Northern Roots’ partnership with Oldham College and our commitment to nurturing emerging talent and giving young people in Oldham a platform to be seen and heard. The project has contributed to students’ work experience and can be used to support CVs, university applications and job applications going forwards.
We are delighted to showcase our nine winners and hope you enjoy their creativity as much as we have. This is the sound of Northern Roots.
