It's been a whirlwind week at the Shanghai Conservatory with the lovely Yuri Cho - a concert at the New Music Week, and 11 new compositions performed last night for the composing competition. At least a million notes flew by.... great to catch up with old friends, make some new ones - and the beer was well earned (and enjoyed) afterwards!!!!
This week we’re featuring SOUNZ Contemporary Award finalist Jeroen Speak, who is nominated with ’Serendipity Fields’. This is the second time Jeroen has been nominated for the Award.
“It is very inspiring seeing the high quality of new music being composed by New Zealand's younger generation today. Salina Fisher and Chris Gendall are both remarkable composers, with unique voices, I congratulate them both.”
Jeroen introduces 'Serendipity Fields' below and you can read more about him and the work on SOUNZ Online:
