This month I will be organising a recording session for my Song Cycle trio piece. Afternoon at the Orangerie was performed in December by Yvette Goodchild (viola) of Sydney Symphony Orchestra and Grevillea Ensemble – Wendy Dixon (soprano) & David Miller (piano) of the Sydney Conservatorium. (See Previous Events) This month I will listen to the performance recording and make a few adjustments, including extending the improvisation passages throughout. The colours that were created through the layered timbral and textural effects worked extremely well. I also want the performers to share more of the composer-creator role. So I will be extending certain semi-improvised passages to give the players more opportunity act as ‘creative collaborator’.
