A student on the Jazz course
Despite being assigned to the Jazz group I chose and unorthodox composition route in which I merged contemporary classical ideas with Jazz thus creating a unique sound. My composition used Aleatoric influences from Schoenburg, Boulez and Dai Fujikura as well as jazz influences from a number of composers . The product resulted in a cacophony of improvisation and experimental music which I really enjoyed listening to at the final concert.
Being at the Purcell School on the Sound and Music Summer School allowed me to express my true identity as a composer and enabled me to open out my compositional repertoire and explore new boundaries for me. It was great to work with a fantastic tutor and professional sextet.
