Humoresque By Morgan Brougham (Go Compose! 2017) by sound Festival published on 2017-12-14T12:07:03Z Go Compose! is a 3-day composition course for young composers and creative musicians aged 14-19 and in full time education. It’s a unique opportunity to work with professional composers and musicians. Go Compose 2017 took place 15th-17th October at Woodend Barn, Banchory. With the help from professional composers John De Simone (sound's composer in residence) and Eleanor Alberga and musicians from Red Note Ensemble, 11 young composers created their own, original piece of music. The course finishes finished with a fantastic performance from the players of Red Note, with 11 new pieces being aired for the first time. Each of the composers introduced their own works, as well as producing a short programme note about the pieces, explaining how they had got to the point of completion over the last few days. Go Compose! is a collaboration between sound, Red Note Ensemble and Sound and Music with support from D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust, David and June Gordon Memorial Trust, The Hugh Fraser Foundation, Aberdeen Endowments Trust, Woodend Barn and soundbytes investors Margaret Carlaw and Derek Ogston.
