The Emergence Factory was founded in 2020 in London, UK and comprises a music publishing business and record label.
Its music publishing business has a strong educational focus and currently presents several publications for violin ensemble (up to 6 violins) and string ensemble (2 or 3 violins, 1 or 2 violas and 2 cellos). Due to the different levels of difficulty of the parts and the variety of tempi available, these albums aim to speak to a large range of music students and enthusiasts. All repertoire can easily be taught and played in music education settings or from home. Future publications will be looking to expand the repertoire for violin ensemble as well as string ensemble.
The record label has several albums in the pipeline for 2023 and will focus on old and new violin solo repertoire across fields of music. More information to follow soon.
In philosophy, science and art, emergence occurs when different parts interact in a wider whole; emergent structures are patterns that emerge via the collective actions of many individual entities. It is a process of attraction and repulsion in which the internal organisation of a system - normally an open system - increases in complexity without being guided or managed by an outside sources. Emergent structures are more than the sum of their parts on the assumption that the emergent order will not arise if the various parts simply interact independently of one another.
The Factory was Andy Warhol's New York City studio between 1962 and 1984. It was the vibrant hangout for many artists and was famed for its groundbreaking parties. A meeting point for artists across various fields such as Bob Dylan, Truman Capote, Salvador Dali, Mick Jagger, Keith Herring and many others, it quickly earned prominent status on the music and visual art scene as a hub for creativity and iconic artwork.
