The 2018 Irish Composition Summer School will run from Jul 4th - 13th.
This year’s school will offer a range of lectures, presentations and demonstrations on all aspects of contemporary composition, focusing on contemporary writing for any combination of the available forces (2vn, va, vc), with optional electronics.
At the end of the course, the students’ works will be presented in workshop, rehearsed and digitally recorded by the performers in residence. Throughout the course, students will receive guidance from experienced course directors and nationally and internationally renowned composers. This year, the ICSS is delighted to welcome Richard Whalley as Guest Director, who will present seminars on his own work, as well as giving individual tutorials to all students.
