Mah Ji Rui: Reflections on YCF 2023

Through this experience, I’ve been able to meet many new peers, bringing their own style of music composition. It was a very eye opening experience for me, as I’ve been composing mostly by myself, with my own tastes and inspirations. Being able to experience such different and unique styes of music will allow me to diversify my own compositions.

The 2nd edition of CSS’ Young Composers Forum took place from October 2023 to March 2024. Under the tutelage of senior CSS composers Joyce Koh, John Sharpley and Yuting Tan, 9 young composers were selected to undergo a 6-month creative period of meet-the-musician sessions, lectures, individual lessons and workshop sessions, in order to develop new pieces for local new music collective Weird Aftertaste. YCF 2023 culminated in a final concert at the Singapore Composers Festival 2024, which took place on 23 March 2024.
