We has such a great session on Thursday, the first workshop for the Concerto for Beatboxer and Orchestra where we actually blended a group of beatboxers with a real orchestra – about 15 of them!
Anna Meredith (our composer) is flying, she’s been writing some exciting rhythmic and harmonic little pieces. Now she can start stringing them together into the final score (which has to be done by Xmas – no pressure then).
Highlight of the day was when the orchestral players beatboxed, just
by reading the notation! It really works STOKED.
Here’s some photos taken by Gemma Riggs.
