Sokratis Sinopoulos: Creation & Orchestration of Music for Mixed Ensembles / 29 March – 2 April 2018
“Creation & orchestration of music for mixed ensembles”
The seminar will focus on adapting older and newer music material from Mediterranean traditions to mixed musical ensembles. Techniques for the orchestration and adaptation of musical material, ways of combining musical instruments and styles will be presented, and proposals for blending modality with tonal accompaniment will be discussed. We will also examine the basic concepts concerning melody and modality, rhythmic and musical articulation etc.
At least half of the pieces that will be presented will result from the suggestions of the students at the seminar. Students will be able to propose pieces they want to work with, ends of February.
