Nathan selected for Tŷ Cerdd's CoDI CHAMBER Programme / by Nathan James Dearden

Nathan has been selected alongside thirteen Welsh and Wales-based composers to participate in Tŷ Cerdd’s new initiative, which was launched in early June. CoDI Composer Pathways is a multi-faceted programme, aiming to create a community of Welsh composers, promote shared learning and collaboration, and provide creative opportunities.

What is CoDI CHAMBER?

Six composers have been selected to develop their writing for chamber ensemble over a series of intensive Sunday workshops with tuition and development work given by Lynne Plowman. These include a session on ‘rehearsing and conducting your work with ensemble’ by Wales-based New Music conductor Michael Rafferty. Student’s pieces will be workshopped by the Berkeley Ensemble which will make a studio recording of each and give their premieres at the project’s final concert at Cardiff University. The recordings may be released by Tŷ Cerdd Records and (where composers’ publishing rights/deals allow) also published by Tŷ Cerdd.

The artists’ call was made in June, offering paid creative development opportunities for up to 14 composers. 65 applications were received.
