Edward Cowie · “Voices” – Composers’ Workshop (June 2020)

03 Jun, 2020 - 07 Jun, 2020 , Pfaelzer Hof

"Voices" – Composers Workshop (June 2020) 1

Pfaelzer Hof Artist Residencies in Germany is inviting composers of contemporary music to apply for an intensive workshop/retreat with internationally renowned composer Edward Cowie.

The workshop will focus on composing for voice and will be taught in two five-day sessions: one at the beginning of June 2020 and one at the beginning of October 2020.

The workshop offers space for six to eight composers to study and write music in a focussed and intimate setting. The workshop will include group as well as individual face to face lessons.

Participants may or may not be singers themselves and additional mixed voices will be drawn in as needed. A mini concert of both work in progress and a group improvisation directed by Edward are planned to celebrate the creative time spent together and to invite the local community to attend.

Edward likes to draw on interdisciplinary elements in his teaching but the main focus in this workshop is on the contemporary voice and how to work with it.

The composition workshop for voices will be taught over two sessions:

  • Session 1: 3rd to 7th June 2020
  • Session 2: 7th to 11th October 2020

The cost of the workshop (which includes both sessions) is EUR 825.00. Please note that this fee excludes accommodation.

Informal applications in any medium are invited by Sunday, 19th January 2020. Please indicate in your application if you are a singer and what voice you are.

Places are limited and will be allocated to selected participants during January 2020. Participants will receive an offer by the beginning of February and will need to accept this in writing and pay a 50% deposit. More details will be sent to participants on registration.

Please apply by email to amber@pfaelzerhof.org. We look forward to hearing from you.
