Composition Workshop & Networking Event


RMN Classical is pleased to announce its first 2 Days Intensive Workshop & Networking Event that will take place next 18th and 25th November 2017, in Central London.

 These intensive, highly practical and interactive event, at a very special low price for a central London location, has been specially developed to offer participants the opportunity to grow their network while sharing experiences and ideas about music and contemporary techniques.

The minimal commitment of time and money and the connections made at these events can be valuable in their own right, and at the end of each day, we will invite you to join us at the pub to continue the conversation!

Ideal for composers and musicians, as well as for arranger, producers, sound designer, and any other music professional who wants to better understand this essential part of contemporary music making.

These intensive, highly practical and interactive seminar has been thoughtfully developed to offer participants the opportunity to grow their network while sharing experiences and ideas about music and contemporary techniques.

The attendants will see examples and discuss how to deconstruct compositional systems to associate them into new combinations and get a different perspective of the aforesaid procedures.

Thanks to the in residence pianist there will be the opportunity to see those concepts applied in real situations through examples taken from various scores (among which, works from Ligeti, Berio, Lachenmann, Adams, Debussy, Scriabin) and open discussions.

The workshop is highly interactive, and participants may bring their own works and share the practical solutions and systems they have found while working on past compositions or while studying contemporary scores.

A Call for Piano Scores has been launched in connection with this event, in order for RMN Classical, to discover and select 6 new pieces for piano solo, to include in the concert programme that will take place at the end of each day of the workshop.

Day 2 – 12 tone, Gravitational Harmony, Mixed Systems

A final concert on both days will end the event. The programme (to be announced soon) will include works by Ligeti, Berio, Adams, Lachenmann, Scriabin and more, plus six works selected specifically through a Call for Scores
