March 2021, Phase 1 of our 2021 Composers' 'new music project' and our composer of the day is Jovana Backovic.
Technology created a bit of havoc for Jo (laptop died, connection lost, no midi, she changed from laptop to phone to computer -all quite seamlessly!) but this didn't deter from the marvel of what happened next.
Jo suggested that the piece could be in a many different movements, each with their own character, she then setup a score on Musescore and she started inputting her ideas. Bar by bar, first the flute part and then the piano part, we soon had a fantastic start to our piece.
Jovana sings, plays, taps, refers to her favourite artist Mike Oldfield and his Tubular Bells just watch this short film. It's wonderful to see our piece being created from a simple idea.
Thank you Jo! We are super excited:)
Next, I will share our first meeting with Supriya. If this diary is of interest to you, get in touch with us.
