‘A Day with Platform 4‘ events:

Thursday 12th May

11am TalkHow We Make Our Music I will be presenting my piece [S]urge and will demonstrate how I often use drawing to generate ideas and how, in writing [S]urge I didn’t have to develop the notation much beyond that in order to get the result I wanted. I will also explain more about how I utilise stage placing in my work, the aural outcomes, and how musical performances can become more theatrical as a result.

2 – 5pm WorkshopCome and Compose Get creative and compose a new piece of music with support from Platform 4 composers Jenny Jackson, Tom Owen, Chris Noble and Tom James.
