Musiques & Recherches: Acousmatic Composition Residency

Musiques & Recherches: Acousmatic Composition Residency

Grant of up to €2500 for an acousmatic composition residency in a Musiques & Recherches multiphonic studio. Deadline: March 15, 2023.

Musiques & Recherches is a space for the creation, research, promotion, information and production of electroacoustic music and more precisely acousmatic music. This association has composition studios, regularly welcomes artists in residence and helps amateur and professional artists, performers and creators, interested in the provision of an electroacoustic production cell.

From 2023 onwards, Musiques & Recherches will launch a call for residencies in acousmatic composition for composers under the age of 35, under the patronage of the Annette Vande Gorne Foundation. This recently created foundation has given itself the statutory mission, among others, of supporting the creation of acousmatic works by young composers in order to increase and perpetuate the repertoire.

Age limit: maximum 35 years old in 2023.

To participate send before 15 March 23:59 (Brussels time) a CV, a written description of the multiphonic composition project (between 3 and 16 channels), a work already completed, to [email protected] via a transfer service (Dropbox, WeTransfer, etc.)

The participants commit (by signing) to be present in Ohain (Belgium) for 2 to 3 weeks, preferably in June or July 2023. They will be hosted by a stage manager, and then work independently. The piece must be finished at Musiques & Recherches with a mastered file independent of the work session (+ stereo reduction). The instructions must be written at least one month before the concert creation by Musiques & Recherches.

A supplement of 250€ will be paid if the work is completed (in its two versions) at the end of the residency and documented in time (one month before the concert).

Programming of the piece in a "Lisboa Incomum" concert in Lisbon, Portugal, as part of the concert season of the DME project.

Invitation to attend the next festival "L'Espace du Son", free accommodation at Musiques & Recherches.
