The Band Room Podcast is excited to announce the first ever BRP Consortium Project! Every year The Band Room will lead a consortium to commission a new work for winds. For our first consortium project we are excited to work with Canadian composer, E.K.R. Hammell, composer of Skyline, the music used as our theme music. The new work will be written for 10 winds (2 Flutes, 2 Oboes, 2 Clarinets, 2 Bassoons and 2 Horns), and will be premiered by Dylan Maddix and the Arizona State University Chamber Winds on November 21, 2022. Scores and parts will become available to consortium members after the premiere.

E.K.R. Hammell (Evan, he/him) is a Canadian composer, & arranger in the pursuit of unstoppable forward momentum. A Finalist in the International Young Talented Composers Competition and Winner of the Lloyd Carr-Harris Composition prize, his frequently commissioned original music and arrangements have been heard across four countries (Canada, USA, UK, & Spain).

Evan’s works for wind instruments have been performed by the likes of: the Denis Wick Canadian Wind Orchestra; honour bands/All-States of Saskatchewan, Minnesota & Washington; Trinity Laban Symphonic Winds; Toronto Youth Wind Orchestra; Brandon University Symphonic Band; Mount Allison University Symphonic Band; UPEI Wind Symphony; and the University of Toronto Wind Ensemble. Since early 2020, his piece Skyline has been the theme music for The Band Room Podcast, hosted by Dylan Maddix & Cait Nishimura.

Originally from Prince Edward Island, Evan is currently based in Toronto. Aside from devising pretentiously abbreviated stage names, his other talents mainly involve drawing, playing bass trombone, and being bad at eye contact.
