Michael Blake

Michael Blake was born in 1951 in Cape Town, South Africa. He studied at the University of Witwatersrand, and at the Darmstadt and Dartington Summer Schools with Mauricio Kagel, Gyorgy Ligeti and Peter Maxwell Davies. After a time spent lecturing at Goldsmith’s College, he returned to South Africa in 1998 where he now works. His music combines twentieth-century modernist techniques with some African influences, and his workshop will explore these inter-cultural aspects.


The Faculty’s series of Composers’ Workshops is open to students in all years of the undergraduate music course as well as masters and doctoral students, indeed anyone with an interest in the creation of new music. Because space is limited, please email John Hopkins ( if you are not a Faculty member and wish to attend.
