SOUNDJUNCTION asked three leading composers each to write a new piece of music in their own chosen style.
They were all given the same simple musical idea – the seed rhythm. The idea was to let their compositions grow in a free way from this seed idea. David Horne, Tunde Jegede and Jason Yarde had about three months to compose their pieces. They met before, during and after the writing process, to discuss and compare their ideas.
You could take on the same 'seed idea' composing project yourself. You could listen to these three compositions first to get some ideas. Or you could compose your own piece first, then compare it with the SoundJunction pieces.
