I’m delighted to have been selected to take part in IRCAM’s ManiFeste Academy in June 2017, where I’ll be mentored by composer Toshio Hosokawa. I’ll be composing new sketches for symphony orchestra, to be read by the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France (cond. Pierre-André Valade).
These orchestral sketches will endeavour to write for orchestra using unconventional notations, which builds nicely on the score notation I used for Is there no seeker of dreams that were? last year for the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.
