MUD: Composer-in-Residence Community

Join us for an engaging community workshop led by acclaimed composer and bassist Joseph Franklin, whose work fuses notated and improvised modalities with elements of experimental music, sound art, and unique instrument design.

Esteemed Cellist, David Moran will join him, helping to unpack and demonstrate the intricacies of their collaborative process.

Facilitated by Jesse Budel from Soundstream, participants will have the unique opportunity to explore the intricate interplay of sound and instrumentality and experience firsthand the distinctive techniques and experimental approaches that
have garnered Joseph Franklin national acclaim.

Joseph is MUD’s first composer-in-residence, a new program supporting composers from working-class backgrounds. Drawing from his extensive experience composing for prestigious ensembles such as the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Tasmanian
Symphony Orchestra, and the Australian Youth Orchestra, Joseph will provide an
exclusive glimpse into his compositional process along with the social and political grounds driving much of his work.
