About the Project

One Hundred Second Songs is a project curated by three composers David Lancaster, David Power and Hayley Jenkins.  In particular, we have a passion to support fellow composers, poets and performers through the commission, performance and recording of contemporary short songs. We also aim to celebrate the diversity of contemporary classical music and hope to encourage performers, and their audiences, to embrace new music.

If you are a composer, poet or performer and would be interested in collaborating in future iterations of our project, or sharing some work to the One Hundred Second Song community, please do not hesitate in getting in touch with us via the link below.


Have a listen to some of our featured composers work on SoundCloud.

As a result of our call for scores, those that are selected for live performance are recorded and feature on our SoundCloud. To explore further, please visit our full profile for more music.


If you want to participate in our next project or want to find out more, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We are always eager to collaborate and consider new venues and ideas.

Thanks for submitting!
