Noise-to-Signal Ensemble Call for Scores 2016

June 1, 2016 in All Opportunities, Composers by mwhiteside

The Noise-to-Signal Ensemble is excited to announce its first call for scores! N2SE is a contemporary music collective dedicated to making new music accessible to non-musicians and music aficionados alike. We are particularly dedicated to outreach and have presented concerts and master classes at several universities and high schools across the Midwest.

One or more works will be selected for performance in the 2016-17 season. Winning composers will receive a performance and professional audio recording. All selected composers are invited to attend the performance of their work. We are able to provide accommodation but we cannot cover travel expenses.

Submitted works may contain all (or some) of the instrumentation below:
Clarinet (two players, both doubling on bass clarinet, one doubling on E-flat clarinet)
Saxophone (soprano, alto, tenor)
Oboe (doubling English horn)
Piano (and conductor)

Works with tape are acceptable, as are works that require a conductor. Compositions with live electronics or processing will not be considered. Preference will be given to pieces under 10 minutes and works which include at least four ensemble members.

This call is open to composers of any age residing in any country. Works submitted may have been previously performed or recorded.
