The New Discipline & SELF-CARE

In recent years contemporary composition has become an increasingly visual endeavour, whether through the presence of video or the integration of objects, props and physical movements. This approach calls for new ways of composing, new technical skills and workflows, new methods of critical evaluation, and the rigorous engagement with tools from other disciplines. Jennifer Walshe will talk about her composition “SELF-CARE” for accordionist Andreas Borregaard, which premiered at Borealis Festival earlier this year. Andreas will perform the piece live.
