Soundstream Collective invites emerging composers Australia-wide to take part in the 2016 Emerging Composersʼ Forum. The Soundstream ECF provides emerging composers with professional mentorship, critical review, public performance, recording and audience exposure to their music. The final selection of composer commissions will take place during a performance in Adelaide on 1 December 2016.
The forum will occur in three stages:
Stage One - call for scores, deadline 29 July 2016: composers are invited to submit a new work to be considered for inclusion by a panel of three leading composers. The work should be of 8-20 minutes of duration and written for all or a combination of the following instruments/media: solo soprano OR solo bass baritone, clarinet (doubling bass clarinet), cello, prepared piano, toy piano (37 keys, F-F) and prerecorded electronics.
Stage Two - finalists will be notified - date tbc.
Stage Three - workshop and performance in Adelaide on 29 November - 1 December 2016. The selected composers will be brought to Adelaide to participate in rehearsals of their work, and to attend the performance. Following rehearsal, the composersʼ works will be performed in a concert held on 1 December, performed by the Soundstream Collective. Three commissions of $5000 each, for the creation of a new work and its performance in 2017 by Soundstream Collective, will be awarded to three of the composers.
The Forum is open to Australian citizens and permanent residents who are in the first five years of their professional practice and/or studying at post-graduate level.
