A call for new music: FAWN Chamber Creative

Jenna Simeonov

Composers, this one’s for you!

In its 201617 season, FAWN Chamber Creative will present the fourth edition of their Synesthesia Series, which unites Canadian composers with artists of various performance disciplines. Synesthesia IV will be a unique process, through which FAWN will find the next composer for their Opera Series. The selected composer will work with FAWN to create a new ballet-lyrique, “a traditional French-form loved in the 16th and 17th-centuries, which we will bring to the 21st century stage.”

Composers interested in submitting should send a 1-5 minute recording of their work, plus the corresponding score, a bio, résumé, and a short summary of their compositional interests. The instrumentation is specific, and works must be include some or all of: tenor (voice), cello, electronics, percussion, and acoustic guitar.

The deadline for submissions is March 18, 2016, and the works will be subject to a secret audience vote on May 16.

Interested composers, it looks like you’ve found your next project! We’re looking forward to hearing the work.
