The New Music Help Desk is a unique opportunity for composers and performers to get face time with Spektral Quartet – to ask pointed questions about notation, feasibility, tuning systems, harmonics, or simply how to stay motivated in the midst of a quarantine.
“Our aim is to use our skills to both build community and keep creativity flowing for artists hemmed in by this quarantine – and to do so at no charge.
For this recurring series, we will select questions in advance and then open the proceedings up to attendees using the Zoom Q&A feature. If a submitted question is not one of the few chosen beforehand, attendees can still ask us their question live during the event. All submissions, regardless of date sent, will be kept in the mix for future Help Desk sessions.
The New Music Help Desk is open to anyone curious about the labyrinth of new music notation, composition, and performance. Priority will be given to student and emerging artists, or anyone currently in-process with a piece. And to bring extra perspective to the discussion, Spektral will be joined by a special guest to help answer queries.
This is frankly a scary time for all of us in the arts. We hope the New Music Help Desk brings at least a little glimmer of hope and assistance to our fellow artists.” – Spektral
