Sound and Music Embedded

May 8, 2015 in All Opportunities, Composers by mwhiteside

For the Summer 2015 Embedded residencies, we are delighted to announce partnerships with Lichfield Festival and Red Note Ensemble. The deadline for both these opportunities is noon Wednesday 3 June 2015.

Lichfield Festival brings the best national and international artists and performers to the West Midlands each year for a summer celebration of classical music (old and new), dance, drama, film, jazz, literature, poetry, visual arts and world music. As part of the Embedded programme, Sound and Music and Lichfield Festival are offering an opportunity for one composer to spend up to eleven months in residence at the festival.

The aim of the residency is for the selected composer  to connect broadly with the local community, to create a context for new work which engages with existing and new festival audiences. Shortlisted candidates will be invited to this year’s Lichfield Festival (3-12 July 2015) and will be able to refine their ideas after experiencing the festival for themselves.

You can find out more about this opportunity with the Lichfield Festival Embedded call document.
Apply online by the deadline noon Wednesday 3 June 2015.

 

Red Note Ensemble is Scotland’s contemporary music ensemble, commissioning and performing new music from Scotland and around the world. Building off the success of the first Red Note Embedded residency with Thomas Butler producing Elbow Room, we are pleased to announce a new residency for a composer to create new work with the ensemble. This opportunity would suit someone with ideas and ambition across all aspects of contemporary music performance, for example someone who aspires to setting up their own new music ensemble, or who has an interest in producing, as well as composing, new music.

The selected applicant will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in Red Note’s activities, spending at least two days a month (on average) with the ensemble, in addition to writing time, which could include getting involved with regular nights in city venues or rural touring.
