Over the weekend of 10th-12th October, New Music Scotland will run a residential professional development opportunity for composers at Cove Park. Composers are often by the nature of their work somewhat isolated, with few opportunities for interaction with other composers or for continuing professional development. The aim of this course is to give composers the opportunity to work together, share their difficulties and benefit from each other’s strengths in a safe non-judgmental environment.

Sessions will be led by Fiona Robertson (sound) and Jo Buckley (New Music Scotland), with additional input from composer Sally Beamish.
