CoMA is an ensemble I am involved with, that has for aim to develop and perform a repertoire of contemporary music that is playable for any standard without having to compromise the quality of the music. It is a very interesting challenge for composers and if they success, the music would be played extremely musically because amateur players do it because they like contemporary music, and often put the time needed to understand the music.

Last autumn CoMA London worked with Paul Morley who decided to study composition at the Royal Academy of Music without having any classical training. We played sketches of his music and we also performed his piece in a concert in the Royal Academy of Music, 3rd March 2009. Here we can find some intermediate videos of his work to make a complete documentary based on this one year of learning composition.
