In 2016 Olivia Jageurs launched 15 Second Harp, in which she pledged to video record any notated harp music, composed and submitted by anyone from all over the world. By the end of the year she had recorded over 200 submissions.
The aim of the project is to create a sharing platform for composers and harpists to try out ideas, techniques and pedalling, with near instant feedback. Olivia came to YCAT with the idea of exploring how she could develop this existing project into new instruments and media.
“YCAT Sounding Board sessions have let me explore my ideas at length with professionals who have unique industry insight. I have been able to solidify my goals and the experience so far has been invaluable.” Olivia Jageurs
