Workshop ‣ Royal Music Association's 56th Annual Conference Composition Workshop
Chaired by Roger Redgate.
Performed by Peter Sheppard Skærved and Christopher Redgate.
Compositional research at Goldsmiths comes under the auspices of the Contemporary Music Research Unit (CMRU), which was founded by Professor Roger Redgate in 2011. The CMRU promotes and organises conferences, lectures, concerts and workshops focussing on new approaches to composition, improvisation, notation, new instruments/instrumental techniques and the philosophy and politics of new music.
This composition workshop is lead by violinist Peter Sheppard Skærved and oboist Christopher Redgate, two leading exponents of new music and practice based research, both of whom have a long standing association with Goldsmiths as musicians in residence. Peter Sheppard Skærved is currently an associated research fellow with the CMRU. A further feature of the workshop is the Howarth-Redgate oboe, an extended instrument designed by Christopher Redgate with a view to facilitating a wide range of contemporary techniques.
