This chapter describes the Resolution composing project, a partnership between Birmingham Contemporary Music Group and the Rheumatology Research Group based at the Institute of Biomedical Research at the University of Birmingham, along with researchers from Birmingham City University. This composing project involved pupils aged 14 and 15 years old from three local secondary schools creating their own compositions from a specific set of stimuli. It was funded by The Wellcome Trust, involved biomedical scientists and composers working with classroom music teachers and young people to create new music around the theme of auto-immune disease. The title, ‘Resolution’, comes from a terminology connected with rheumatoid arthritis, and, of course, music.
