opensound: writing for electric guitar with Pete Harden


Free online workshop open to all composers of any level.

Renowned electric guitarist Pete Harden leads an hour-long session on writing for electric guitar, with a focus on the usage of electric guitar in contemporary music settings, principally chamber music.

Approx. 40 min talk with a Q&A session at the end. Please note that although we try to wrap-up opensound sessions by 7pm, they often run over by 5-10 mins.

Pete Harden (1979, UK) is a composer, curator and electric guitarist whose music has been called “intriguing”, “fierce, exciting” as well as conjuring “a subtle three-dimensional landscape” (De Volkskrant). In 2003, having completed composition studies with Louis Andriessen, Gilius van Bergeijk and Richard Ayres at the Royal Conservatoire (The Hague) he was a founding member of Ensemble Klang, for whom he is electric guitarist and artistic director.
