Orcas a Cappella (on Orcas Island, Washington) hosted Damijan Mocnik as composer and director-in-residence and then performed his compositions at the Orcas a Cappella Song Share 07. This young Slovenian composer is gaining international recognition for his work, which is often liturgical and decidedly religious. Dennis Bonner, director of Orcas a Cappella, conducted this interview with Damijan Mocnik and gave us permission to post it! This is a rare opportunity to get inside the head of a living, working composer. Mocnik offers gems of insight into his artistic process and the musical and religious traditions from which he draws his inspiration. Pass this one on to artists everywhere.
