The ensemble Besides (Belgium) selected Anthony Vine’s “Corporal” for the “Call for Scores: Reading Sessions” at The International Summer Festival for New Music Darmstadt. Seven professional ensembles performing in the festival were asked to select 2 – 4 works from a pool of applicants. Vine’s work will be rehearsed/workshopped by Besides in a 1 – 2 hour long reading session that is open to the public and festival participants. This will be a laboratory environment, less concerned with polished performances than with a fruitful work situation, including feedback and interaction between the ensemble and composer and, even, course participants. Questions of interpretation and composition will be discussed in relation to the selected work (e.g. extended techniques, methods of coordination in chamber music, notation, aesthetics etc.).
