In October-November 2014 we hosted four workshops on interesting topics in composition, open to the public, each workshop guided by an insightful and boundary-pushing Canadian artist. The presenters and topics were:
Thom Gill: Harmony, Lyrics, and Electronics
Malcolm Sailor: Writing for Diverse Traditions
Adam Basanta: Melding Music, Visual Art, and Architecture
Erik Hove: Realizing Spectralism and Hip-Hop through Jazz
Below are some video excerpts and texts from the workshops. We hope they will be of some benefit.
