Call for Pieces: Percussion Duo & Ensemble

January 29, 2015 in All Opportunities, Composers by newmusicscotland

Composers of any age and nationality are invited to submit works between 5 and 8 minutes in duration. The first solo to be suitable for a conservatoire standard percussionist (a semi-professional or very good amateur player) and the second solo part to be suitable for a non-specialist but capable musician (able to read music and with experience of playing percussion, but not necessarily with formal training).

Short-listed compositions will be played by Chris Brannick with the Open Score Ensemble at the CoMA Contemporary Music Summer School in August 2015 and works submitted by composers attending the Summer School will be discussed in practical masterclasses. At least one of the shortlisted works will receive a London premiere in July 2016 with Chris Brannick playing the first solo part.

All composers will receive feedback on their pieces from the selection panel, and all works submitted will be considered for inclusion in the CoMA Library.  CoMA will promote successful pieces with a view to further performances by other soloists and other ensembles.

Full details and application form from openscore@coma.org. Deadline for submission 31st May 2015.  Works will be selected by a panel including Chris Brannick and Gregory Rose.
