Derek Charke - Composition Academy, June 3 - 12, 2016
Derek Charke is a JUNO and ECMA award-winning composer and flutist. He teaches composition and theory at Acadia University where he co-directs the Acadia New Music Society, and he continues to perform regularly as a new music performer and improviser on the flute. Although his music tends to defy categorization, it has been described as post-modern and post-minimal, inventive, rich textured, full of colour, and imbued with drama and rhythmic vitality.
