One of the highlights of Fanfare is the recording day with the Australian Youth Orchestra. Last month our young composers ventured into the recording studio at Trackdown and were part of the live recording session with the AYO and guest Israeli conductor Ariel Zuckermann. The recordings have now been finalised and mastered by our fab engineer Andre Shrimski.
Kailesh Reitmans tells us how it’s going at ATYP…
The ATYP mentorship programme has been an exceptional experience; working in a professional environment on original content with a talented creative team, cast, and organisation is proving to be invaluable. I have formed a great working relationship with all members of the creative team, and seeing the production develop and mould before me is something I am certainly grateful for. The environment at ATYP is incredibly fluid, and the way in which Wonderfly is being pieced together incorporates many ideas and inputs from many people – it is not a static space. In particular, I maintain a close dialogue with director Sophie Kelly, who discusses her vision of the text and the practical implementation of each scene with me. Often, I must convey a tone, setting, or emotion – music and sound which encapsulates the tonality of a scene or moment. I have found this to be incredibly enjoyable and beneficial as I rely on translating verbal description into a musical context and end product. Steve Francis has been an excellent guide and mentor in this process, lending his experience and expertise to help shape and often clarify the logistical or practical way to create the appropriate sound for a scene. This experience with ATYP is certainly one that will remain with me. Tickets are on sale now showing 8 – 18 Nov 2017. Book here…
