Ainolnaim Azizol wins 3rd prize at the New Recorder Music 2016 in Lausanne

Kuantan-based composer Ainolnaim Azizol, who won 2nd prize at the ACL Festival in Japan in 2014, has won 3rd prize at the New Recorder Music 2016 in Lausanne for his piece Nadi Bumi for amplified solo alto recorder.

No stranger to the international scene, Ainolnaim also took 3rd prize for a string quartet competition in Cologne some years back.

In Nadi Bumi the composer takes his experimental style a step further exploring various techniques for the alto recorder and fashioning a piece that gives broad freedom to the performer to 'compose' the piece by selecting the order in which the segments of the piece is to be played.

It is also telling that the composer marks the mood of the piece as 'primitive', using the recorder to evoke primal sounds.

The UiTM lecturer joins composers from around the world who had submitted compositions for recorder music, and the results will be premiered at a concert on September 24 in Lausanne.

On April 23rd the jury decided on the competition's results as follows:

Category A
1st prize : Silent prayer for alto recorder by Donny Karsadi
