Following a successful inaugural seminar in 2015 and a gigantic 2016 seminar, Richard Gill, Karen Carey and Andrew Batt-Rawden team up again to deliver another astounding compositional development experience for high school music 1 and music 2 students in years 8, 9, 10 and 11 with a choice of either Monday 24 July 2017, or Tuesday 25 July 2017. The workshop will run from 9am to 2:30pm.
The day has three core components;
- workshop/analysis of students' works
- analysis of contemporary Australian work composed by Stefan Cassomenos
- a performance and discussion other repertoire commissioned by Plexus, by both international and local composers.
A kit will be distributed on the day that includes; all student scores being played through, an educational guide to Stefan Cassemenos' work, scores of other works being performed and a guide to approaching their analysis.
Students are invited to submit a work that is no longer than a minute of a piece for the trio, clarinet (including bass), violin and piano.
PDFs of scores may be emailed to email@example.com.
Scores must be received by June 23, 2017.
We will give broad analysis/pointers on as many works submitted as possible (there will by the necessity of time be a limit to how many works we can get through). All scores being played through in the workshop are published in a booklet that is handed out to all students attending on the day. This encourages students to learn from, and be inspired by, each others' scores.
In addition to workshopping the students' music, we will also give an in depth analysis of one of Stefan Cassemenos's works (details of exact repertoire will be sent prior to Term 1, 2017).
