Creative Composing Lab is specially designed to allow young people the opportunity to compose music with and for professional musicians, guided by the expert knowledge of composer/workshop leader David Horne.
In our first ever Creative Composing Zoom Lab, we will explore composing for string quartet inspired by Chinese/US composer Huang Ruo’s A Dust in Time which will be premiered online by BCMG in November. Led by David and BCMG musicians, you can expect to learn about composing for string quartet, discover what a passacaglia is, and gather ideas from Huang Ruo’s Tibetan sand mandala inspired piece. All music created on the day will be filmed and/or recorded by the BCMG musicians and shared as part of a later online concert. Participants will need access to a Zoom-compatible device and ideally some form of notation software such as Sibelius, MuseScore (free) or Noteflight.
If you love creating music or you need ideas for your GCSE, BTEC or A-level composition, Creative Composing Lab is for you.
Participants need some notation skills.
Places are free, but need to be booked in advance. A suggested donation of £6 per participant will ensure we can continue our workshop programme.
This workshop will take place online using Zoom. Further information and access to the Zoom meeting URL will be distributed to participants 24 hours prior to the workshop.
