In the summer of 2018 I will study various aspects of composition with Martin Arnold in Toronto. I’m excited for this opportunity to work with him and to be active in the Toronto new music community. I’m especially looking forward to helping out with the Toronto Creative Music Lab.
Something Arnold and I plan to focus the study on is the maintenance of an effective balance between work-life, life-life, and music/art-life. This is a topic which I believe hasn’t received the attention it should and is particularly relevant for Canadian artists. I’ll do my best to post any interesting insights and strategies here.
