Guests at EMS

So much has been happening here at EMS, there has been no time left over for the blogging. At the moment, we are enjoying the presence of Marianthi Papalexandri-Alexandri, currently living in Amsterdam and Erik Drescher, straight from Berlin. Michael Maierhof, a composer from Hamburg and one of the leading personalities behind the festival of contemporary music Stock 11 there, joined them for a few days, working on a project together with Erik Drescher.

This week, we also have the pleasure of the company of Anders Vinjar, a composer from Norway.

It's always nice when people from abroad come to EMS. We learn a lot of things during our lunches and coffee breaks! We also believe that EMS is appreciated by overseas composers because of the peace and quiet and the fact that they can get away from the hustle and bustle of their everyday lives and just concentrate on their work!
