Halcyon have released three videos on YouTube of Andrew Schultz discussing his work. In these interviews he discusses his approach to composing and creativity, expressing ideas and communication in music, and the importance and joy of working with words and text.
1. Creating the framework
2. Finding your voice
3. On setting text
Here is the Halcyon information on the project:
In this series we talk with composers about their craft, their process, their influences, and of course their approach to vocal writing. Built on long working relationships, the conversations have an ease of familiarity but also provide useful insights into each composer’s work, their relationship with Halcyon and the pieces that they have written for the ensemble.
