• Another award to Steen-Andersen

    9th of December 2015 · tags:

    A few days ago the Danish Arts Foundation Scholarship Committee for Music awarded composition lecturer at the Academy Simon Steen-Andersen as one out of nine composers from nearly every genre. Steen-Andersen was awarded 50,000 DK-kr. for his piece "Staged Night / inszenierte Nacht" which had its Denmark Premiere at SPOR Festival in May 2015.

    The Scholarship Committee typically each year awards a number of pieces that have meant something special for the Danish music scene. One can not apply to be awarded. Chairman Peter Bruun says generally about the nine pieces: "The pieces lanes new musical paths of the individual artist and the music. They create large, unique experiences and bring new creative impulses in the Danish music scene."

    About the Steen-Andersen-piece it is stated that “it was wild and frantic - and unique." Read full motivation here (in Danish).
