GB_reh_2

Following the announcement (and fast selling out) of sessions with Chris Watson (founder of Cabaret Voltaire, and sound recordist for David Attenborough), Laraaji (celebrated ambient musician, best known for his work with Brian Eno) and Eli Keszler (NYC virtuoso percussionist, composer and installation artist), CAMP have announced a rare masterclass in modern composition with Gavin Bryars in France beginning 24 April 2018.

Bryars is without a doubt one of the most world’s celebrated living composers. He emerged in the early sixties, playing bass with improvisers Derek Bailey and Tony Oxley, and by the late 60’s he was working with John Cage, Cornelius Cardew and John White. His first major works – The Sinking of the Titanic (1969), originally released on Brian Eno’s Obscure label in 1975, and Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet (1971) – were released in new versions in the 1990s, selling over a quarter of a million copies.

Opera and ballet have formed important strands in Gavin’s practice – he has written four full-length operas, working with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, English National Opera, Mainz Opera, Long Beach Opera and the Opera de Paris, alongside such renowned directors as Robert Wilson, Georges Delnon and Jean Lacorrnerie. He has worked with Opera North Projects and the Royal Shakespeare Company since 2006, and his collaboration with Merce Cunningham, Biped, toured worldwide.

This course will take Gavin’s work as a starting point to examine compositional forms and strategies, working closely with the group’s existing practice and methods, with the aim of each student developing a finished work for performance at the end of the session. The sessions will be accompanied by optional outdoors activities led by CAMP crew, including guided mountaineering, visits to local beauty points, and downtime to hang out, relax, enjoy the local food and wine, and learn informally from Gavin, the CAMP crew, and your fellow students. All sessions include full board accommodation at the centre, all activities, optional outdoor activities including hiking, running and visits to local beauty spots, unlimited use of the centre’s Pro Tools studios, editing suites, arts library, performance areas, galleries and other facilities. Participants also get ongoing artist support from Fuse Art Space including performance opportunities, tour support, and opportunities to distribute new work via Fuse’s stable of in-house publishing and releasing imprint
