UK Music Research
UK Music is committed to an extensive programme of research which defines the industry’s place within the country’s cultural and economic framework and can also inform and influence current debate and decision making.
For many years BASCA (and its predecessor organisation the Composers Guild of Great Britain) produced Commission Fee Guidelines (CFG) of indicative fee rates for the commissioning of new music from modern classical and jazz composers. These guidelines, which were updated annually, gave a variety of per minute rates for new music broken down by the forces used. The CFG were produced in hard copy and on the BASCA website and were used as a reference by both composers and commissioners.
Equality and Diversity
New and exclusive research undertaken by BASCA has revealed the extent of the problems surrounding diversity and equality in regard to gender and ethnicity within the realms of composition commissions and classical music education.
