Full Program: December 3rd

Collaboration – what is it and why do we do it?
‘Collaboration’ is something of a buzzword in contemporary music, but how clear are we, as a community and as individuals, about what it means? An interrogation of the term leads to an investigation of the composer-performer and performer-performer relationships, of the multifarious models for fruitful collaborative (and non-collaborative) partnerships, of authorship issues and of what might motivate us to embark upon collaboration at all.

Are collaborative projects necessarily better/enriching/more innovative?
What might we be sacrificing when we idealise collaborative partnerships?Does collaboration lead to an equitable sharing of the cultural capital?
How can a redefining of our creative roles within a collaborative relationship lead to a greater flexibility and equitability in the realms of remuneration and authorship?
