FSOE episode 3: Katerina Gimon Fresh Sounds / Open Ears

    • Music Interviews

Episode 3 (April 2, 2021): Katerina Gimon and I talk about composing collaboratively with choirs, aleatoric notation, the kind of music that 5-year-olds write, how myths and archetypes can be an entry point for creating with students, the musicality of cats, and Regina Spektor, among other things...

**Note! You will hear me speculate that Katerina is in her early 30s... but she is actually not yet even 30. CBC even named her a "top 30 under 30" in the Canadian musical landscape.

Fresh Sounds / Open Ears is an interview podcast about composition and music education, hosted by composer Alex Eddington. Every episode, I have a conversation with a different Canadian composer - with a focus on their writing for/with young and amateur musicians.
