2nd Jan. 2017
A workshop aimed at developing a more imaginative approach to composing. Our composers were asked to bring ideas and then work on them through the day with expert guidance from w/s leaders John Pickard and Geoff Poole. It was a fantastic day of great music making involving graphic scores, extended techniques and thinking outside of the usual confines of traditional harmony and notation.

Dave Pagett: Clarinet
Steph Gilbert: flute
Harriet Riley: Percussion
