Writing for Percussion

Tuesday 6 August – Wednesday 7 August 2019

Aberdeen

for young composers based in Scotland

Cost: £40

 

International Percussion Institute (IPI) is an annual seminar for percussionists taking place in Aberdeen, Scotland. This year, the IPI will also feature an inaugural composition course for young composers based in Scotland aged 17 to 26 on Tuesday 6 and Wednesday 7 August, in partnership with sound. The theme for the course is writing for percussion.

 

The course, led by leading composer Joe Duddell, will consist of demonstrations, workshops, and a chance to collaborate with IPI participants. Over the 2 days, composers will create a short piece for percussion which will be performed at a sharing session.

 

The aim of the course is to give composers an opportunity to improve technical skills in contemporary composition for the percussion as well as developing general compositional ideas.
