MUS534: Ends and Means: Issues in Composition

Course Info

Our focus is on writing new works for percussion quartet, with a level and depth of engagement which resembles S's process of commissioning major new works. The spring course challenges composers to consider aspects of percussion writing which are peculiar to percussion chamber music, as well as writing etudes for instruments they are less likely to be familiar with such as steel drums. After the semester course, S works individually with each composer to workshop and premiere a new 8-12' long work for percussion quartet.
