Field Trip

The Netherlands:

Field Trip #9 to the Greek composer Aspasia Nasopoulou

Location: Linnaeusstraat 18-, 1092CK Amsterdam  / Date: 11.2.2015 / Time: 10.30am-13.00pm 

 

Nachtwerk

I am active as a composer and as a piano teacher.  In autumn 2013, my partner and I had a little girl... My compositional practice is very wide and multitasking; ranging from the very focused isolated actual composition process, to initiating, organizing and producing projects. This also includes running musical rehearsals, recordings and promoting my work up to making the graphic design of my scores for the publishing house. Besides that I am really enjoying teaching piano to children three days per week.

During the Field Trip, I will present my experiences of my first compositional process for the piece “Nachtwerk” after giving birth. I will particularly focus on the questions of How does maternal experience, practice and thinking effect ones methodology of production. How do these methodologies in turn effect what is produced?” 

Nachtwerk was performed in seven cities last autumn. Samples of my work can be heard through my website:
