Last year I received an email out of the blue asking if I would like to lead an orchestration workshop for the Singapore Symphony Orchestra. The plan was that we would pick eight participants and they would orchestrate Le Gibet from Ravel’s Gaspard de la nuit. I thought it would also be cool for them to orchestrate some film music, so I picked a few cues from my Trollhunters score. The participants were Khachatur Khachatur, Joseph Lim, Dax Wilson, Alicia Chandra, Rachel Wong, Jessica Tam, Sulwyn Lok and Yong Ping.
The workshop was a huge success and I had an amazing time in Singapore. The food, the orchestra, and the people were all amazing. Thanks to Hans Sørensen for inviting me and coming up with the idea to orchestrate Le Gibet.
Here are a few articles about the workshop.
