Kim's Composer's Kitchen Blogs

Kim Codner, who just finished her fourth year here at the School of Music and is heading off to McGill to do a Master's in Composition next year, is participating in a programme in Montreal right now called "Composer's Kitchen," with the Quattor Bozzini and composers Linda Smith and Michael Oesterle. Click on the link if you wish to find out more about this programme, but briefly, their website describes it as follows:
This unique event revolving around the string quartet is a combination workshop, laboratory, playground, and master class. Over the course of a week, the Quatuor Bozzini and two experienced composers will observe the work of six up-and-coming composers. Their compositions will be read, played, assessed, analyzed, worked on, played again, and performed in the closing concert. This gives young composers a unique opportunity to perfect their craft with professional musicians.
Kim has been posting blogs on her experiences there, and they are a great read! They also have a lot of useful information on notation issues, and the kind of feedback she's been getting from both the quartet and the "mentor" composers.

Here are the links to her Composer's Kitchen blogs:

It can be confusing when it comes to knowing what kitchen gadgets to buy. Of course, it depends on whether it is for you or as a gift for somebody. Things like cutlery, cookware and tableware are something everybody uses, but other kitchen gadgets are considered more personal and are typically considered the cook’s tool ensemble,Kitchen gadgets

Normally, I delete spam bot "comments," but this one (above) is kind of funny and possibly profound, so I left it. Maybe somebody could do a musical setting of it...
