Andrew Jamieson is in his senior year of composition studies at Northwestern University. To enter Iron Composer, he submitted a score for audience and orchestra titled Rauha Me, which is deceptively simple.
Joe Drew, from ANALOG arts, spoke with Andrew about how intriguing his submission was. Their conversation ranges from Andrew’s experience at Northwestern, studying with composers like Lee Hyla, to how he expects to handle the unique challenges of the competition.
Andrew graciously provided recordings of some of his music to accompany his interview:
Rauha Me, for chamber orchestra and audience
Performed by Northwestern University Contemporary Music Ensemble; Emanuelle Andrizzi, conductor
pH-Ann: 2c, for piano
Performed by Maxwell Lee
