Music writing factory – Josep Vila i Casañas

Thursday 9.30hrs
Domplein 4

In a LAB, co-creation and experimentation are the main focus. Josep Vila i Casañas leads this LAB, where composers will collaborate on new ways of composing and conducting their works.

A LAB-choir will be present to support the freshly-written material by the composers, who will have the opportunity to conduct their own music. Together with Josep and the singers, as well as their colleague-composers, participants will create a new musical work together. The result of this session will be put on stage during a final presentation, which is open for the audience.

Visiting this LAB as a passive participant is not possible. However you can experience the results of this LAB at the final presentation, Friday 29 July, 17.30 hrs in Domplein 4-Marnixzaal.

How a LAB differs from a regular workshop

A LAB differs from a regular workshop on composing and conducting. A LAB is not about following a leader, but about creating content together: both session leaders and participants operate on an equal level to get the best result possible. Or fail together.

Special needs for this LAB

The audition process for this LAB has closed. Four participants were selected for this LAB.
