Since saturday evening, I am staying in Darmstadt, Germany to take part as a composer in the International Summer Course for New Music.
Next to the dozens of concerts and lectures I will be attending, I am participating in the workshop No Medici, organised by the phenomenal Belgian flutist Ine Vanoeveren. For this workshop, I have composed Kobudai for alto flute. It is an amazing opportunity for young composers like me to work with a professional performer, and I’m very grateful to Ine for selecting me – next to 4 other composers – for this project!
And there’s more… Monday, I received a lesson by Pierluigi Billone, and planned are three more lessons with Brian Ferneyhough, Liza Lim and Rebecca Saunders.
These two weeks will surely be some of my most inspirational, exciting and memorable ones of 2018.
