Program Description

GRANTS AVAILABLE - see website for details A five-day residential worshop with Gavin Bryars, held at our high-altitude arts facilities in the French Pyrenees. Gavin Bryars is without a doubt one of the world's most celebrated living composers. He emerged to the musical establishment in the early sixties, playing bass with improvisers Derek Bailey and Tony Oxley - his relationship with improvisation, although of some significance, was short lived, and by the late 60's he was working with John Cage, Cornelius Cardew and John White. His first major works - The Sinking of the Titanic (1969), originally released on Brian Eno's Obscure label in 1975, and Jesus' Blood Never Failed Me Yet (1971) - were released in new versions in the 1990s, selling over a quarter of a million copies. This course does not take a narrow dogmatic line, but rather will take Gavin's work as a starting point to examine compositional forms and strategies. Full info: campfr.com/gavinbryars
