Jury Talk: Joe Cutler

context, lecture, off-beat, collaboration

In his lecture Joe Cutler discusses off-beat commissions, i.e. compositions for a specific context with financiers who are looking for a unique element or ‘story’. He will speak about his composition Ping, for table tennis players and string quartet, written for the Olympic Games in London (2012), Boogie Nights for barrel organ and orkest de ereprijs (to be performed on 8 September), and a number of collaborations with mixed ensembles from the world of jazz and classical music.
