Season for Ex-Change Two
OCM Listening Parties: Music for Change
We’re partnering with Oxford Contemporary Music (OCM) to bring you a special Listening Party! We’ll be celebrating and sharing music that has changed the world – in big ways or small. Music of protest, revolution, quiet revelation, whether it’s helped you change your habits or been part of major historical moments of change. We want to know what music for change means to you. As part of this one-off, we will share the tracks that inspired us to get us started, before it’s over to you.
This edition’s track for starters is Get Up Stand Up, by Bob Marley, chosen by the Season for Change team.
About OCM Listening Parties
What is it?
We love discovering new music, and the best way to discover is to share.
Listening Parties are a space to share the music you’re passionate about. You’ll discover something new and meet new people through their music choices.
How does it work?
Listening Parties are temporarily online. We’ve tried out several platforms for communal listening and decided to use Zoom for our virtual Listening Parties, until we can be in the same room again.
Like an open mic, let us know when you sign up to attend if you’ve got a track you’d like to share. Unlike the live events, we’ll ask you to choose in advance what track you want to share and send it to us, so that we can play it to everyone. It can be a link to Youtube/Spotify/Bandcamp/Soundcloud/any freely accessible digital platform, or a file that we can download.
We’ll pull names out of a hat to determine the order of play. When your name comes up, we encourage you to introduce your track, tell us why you’ve chosen it, what is special about it to you before we all listen together. We’ll limit contributions to 4 minutes each so that we can fit in lots of contributions.
The night’s bespoke playlist will be available to listen to again after the event, to go back to find any jewels you discovered.
Sign up through Eventbrite, and we’ll send you a link to join the Zoom call and further instructions for participation.
