Bit of a retro-post now that the dust has settled. From 28-June til the 5-July I was fortunate enough to be selected for the 2015 Composit Festival. The festival was an intesive 8-day composition festival in the town of Rieti, Italy.
During this time I attended masterclasses, and had private lessons, with the tutors for the festival: Pierluigi Billone, Joshua Fineberg and Davide Ianni.
The festival culminated with a performance of my new work A - for alto saxophone, percussion, electric guitar and accordian. The performance was courtesy of Ensemble Composit: Vincent Daoud, Luca Piovesan, Tom de Cock, and Maarten Stragier.
