Episode #93: Harry Stafylakis
costs of commissioning, musical themes, metal musicality, AND MORE•
This week we cut deep with WSO Composer-In-Residence, Winnipeg New Music Festival Co-Curator, and New York based composer Harry Stafylakis. We bring you this bonus ep just before the WNMF so we could learn a bit more about the festival and what goes in to organizing a collection of musicians to play in Winnipeg.
We talk with Harry about the time and cost to curate a festival and commission music, his love for metal, and a bit about his journey up until now from being in several Montreal based metal to composing for orchestra to curating a festival in Winnipeg!
