After working hard in Stockholm for the past 2 weeks, I have certainly learnt a lot from working in the brilliant studios and have produced some bits and pieces which will hopefully become parts of future pieces...got lots of ideas! Next project: I am incredibly pleased to be selected for the second round of TENSO Young Composer Workshops, working with the Latvian Radio Choir in September! Need to get cracking on more choral ideas and excited to see Nuno da Rocha and Georgi Sztojanov, fellow composers, again!
I am currently in the beautiful city of Stockholm, undertaking a residency at the Elektronmusikstudion for 2 weeks. I decided I wanted to further explore what I can do in the field of electroacoustic music, so why not do it somewhere exciting! I highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in working in studios within any genre of music.
Excited to try out the underwater microphones!
George Barton (percussion) and Siwan Rhys (piano) shall be premiering my new piece 'Saida Portraits' written for New Dots in The Forge, Camden, London on 10th June. Excited already! You can read about my piece in a blog post I did for the New Dots website and check out my inspiration for the piece. You can also buy tickets for the concert on the website, hint hint!
I have been selected to take part in the Tenso Young Composers Workshop in Mechelen, Belgium 16th-18th May! The workshop is part of the Tenso Days International Festival for Contemporary Choral Music and I shall be taking fragments of a choral piece to be workshopped by DR VokalEnsemblet with composer/conductor James Wood and composer Leo Samama.
