The practicalities of writing for a fusion enemble
- 60 British pounds£60
Writing for a fusion ensemble can be hard. Even creating arrangements of traditional songs can present a lot of issues for the performers. Where does the composer start? What practical considerations do they need to make when taking on the challenge of working with instruments that live in musical worlds of their own? Where do they draw the line between cultural exchange and appropriation? The answer comes when we delve in to the deep complexities of the cultures themselves and find hidden parallels which connect the music of people around the world, establishing unique musical relationships.
