Processing a Tragedy By Composing Music: Tom Schipper at TEDxEde

BiographyTom Schipper is a 17-year old composer. Over the last year, he took composition classes with Calliope Tsoupaki at the Royal Conservatoire in the Hague, where he improved his composition and orchestration skills. Next year, he hopes to continue his composition studies at the conservatoire of Amsterdam.Talk descriptionIn the summer of 2011, Tom's mother suffered from a cerebral infarct. Many months of recovery passed and after more than half a year, she fully recovered. In his talk, Tom will talk about the way he has dealt with this tragedy, in the context of his final year at school, in which he realised a huge composition project. In this project, he wanted to write a piece which summed up the feelings he had regarding the tragedy. Thus, a new piece for solo flute was born, which encompasses more than the ordinary flute sounds and techniques. His piece will be played by Petra van den Dolder. The dancers are Juul Henkens and Margeaux-Theze LassusAbout TEDxIn the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
