Flute & Voice Workshops – 19th October

Flute & Voice Workshops
This coming Tuesday, two short studies of mine will be workshopped at Manchester’s Martin Harris Centre, by singer Nina Whiteman and flautist Gavin Osborn. These two performers are two thirds of the wonderful Trio Atem, and are successful composers as well.

Nina will be singing ‘Needles and Butter’, a progressive destruction of two alliterative 18th-century nursery rhymes, while Gavin will be tackling ‘Wasserflut’, a swirling torrent of descending semiquavers requiring the detachment of mouth from finger action.

A larger piece, for the two performers combined, will be workshopped on the 9th December. Both workshops will also feature the work of fellow Manchester Masters composers Jasmin Rodgman and Hannah Taylor.
