Calling all young composers!
Spectrum Music, with the support of Array Music, is thrilled to continue the New Voices Composer Residency into its third year. Full info on the program, as well as the application form, can be found below.
The New Voices Composer Residency is open to composers at the high-school and undergraduate levels. Spectrum Music is bringing back NYC-based Canadian composer Daniel Jamieson as guest mentor.
The workshop is open to all who apply. To ensure an impactful and enriching experience, only a maximum of 10 participants will present their works for feedback, each of whom are selected through an application process reviewed by a panel of arts professionals. Chosen participants present their compositions and receive direct feedback from Mr. Jamieson on relevant writing techniques and artistic considerations. In a separate session, the Spectrum composers will also present their own works for the Spectrum collective, and cover a wide range of compositional techniques, artistic considerations, and practical considerations for the various ensembles. This allows the New Voices Composer in Residence candidates a more specific look at the music Spectrum presents and how it gets created. Given the high calibre of these emerging talents, participants also gain valuable insights and techniques from their peers by presenting their works to the group and by observing and discussing the material of others.
At the end of the two-day workshop, one individual will be selected as the 2016 New Voices Composer and will be tasked with composing a new
work to be performed as part of the Spectrum Music’s June 4, 2016 concert programme, Tower of Babel. The concert will feature works by:
Spectrum composers, guests, and the 2016 New Voices Composer. Performers will include Toronto-based pianist/composer Noam Lemish and NYC-based oud player Amous Hoffman.
