Toolbox: an informal workshop on writing for the voice.
In the first half of the workshop, JULIET FRASER will lay out her guidelines to writing for the voice and use a selection of scores to explore and debate notational practices in contemporary vocal writing; in the second half, she will run a 'surgery', looking at works-in-progress submitted by Chicago-based composers. The workshop will end with a short Q&A session.
Composers wishing to participate in the surgery should submit their scores/sketches to Adam Vida at firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday April 24, 2017. Please note: due to time constraints, Juliet will make a selection of four or five scores.
