Call for Graphic Scores

October 5, 2015 in All Opportunities, Composers by mwhiteside

The Stoke Newington Contemporary Music Festival ( and experimental chamber choir the Vocal Constructivists ( are jointly issuing a CALL FOR GRAPHIC SCORES to composers, artists, graphic designers – and anyone else who feels creative.


The winning entry will be performed by the Vocal Constructivists in their concert as part of this year’s Festival at St. Mary’s Old Church, Stoke Newington on 5th December.  The winner and selected others may also be exhibited at the concert venue on the night.


The Constructivists’ concert takes the centenary of Kazimir Malevich’s Eight Red Rectangles as the starting point for a fascinating journey through contemporary Polish scores incorporating graphics and text instructions, tightroping the intersection of a cappella vocal performance and live art.


Scores might or might not respond to this context, but we welcome a variety of approaches to the graphic score medium.


Send scanned or photographed scores to Deadline: Sunday 1st November 2015.
