ULYSSES Composers journey @ Snape Maltings

11/2019 Snape Maltings – UK

From 11th to 16th November, Leonardo Marino (IT) benefits from a ULYSSES Journey stop at Snape Maltings (UK). During his residency in the Jerwood Kiln Studio he wants to investigate following questions:


Complexity has been a value of western culture for quite some time. Music is a multilayered activity and complexity could be found in a lot of different operational levels. The question is: what is actual complexity in music? How can it still be considered as a value?

Writing music is like walking in a fascinating maze with one peculiar feature: the exit always leads to another more intricate maze.


An Open Session takes place on 16th November at 5 pm allowing to discover the results of his work.
