Explorations Through Writing For Strings and Jazz
My project was to write four new pieces of music for a large jazz ensemble including singers, horns, a typical jazz piano trio and a string quartet. I had the intention to analyze the classical repertoire of string quartets. I have been writing for strings since my first year of Masters at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels (Belgium). I am more and more passionate about writing and arranging, so this is the reason why I wanted to dig deep into the string writing process.
