Composers Katrina Burton, Kenneth Dempster and John Hails compose site-specific works for Edinburgh Doors Open Day
Following her experience composing site-specific works for Open House Chicago, Katrina successfully pitched the idea of presenting new music at Edinburgh Doors Open Day 2017. Katrina, Kenneth and John each selected a building to work with; BMus students performed the new compositions at regular intervals in the selected buildings as part of the Doors open Day activities on September 23rd.
