02. Juli 2019The Mechanics of Breath – Call for composers
Deadline: August 1st, 2019
Hertzbreakerz, in collaboration with Ars Nova Society, is seeking two composers to be invited to write a new piece and to come to Malmö for the rehearsal sessions and the first concert within the frame of the project “Mechanics of breath” (preliminary dates, to be confirmed: March 10th-14th, workshop and first concert). The selected composers will write for the Zöllner/Roche duo (clarinet and accordion, more info at https://www.zoellner-roche.com/), with optional electronics.
Score must be delivered at the latest by 1st of January.
In order to attend the rehearsals and the premiere (Malmö, Inter Arts Center), selected composers’ living expenses and accommodation (4 nights) will be covered by Hertzbreakerz/Ars Nova Society as well as travel to Malmö. Four more concerts in other Swedish cities will follow, (expenses for attending these concerts is not provided).
Ideas and visions will be discussed during the process, while sharing common spaces and working sessions, and the outcome of this mutual influence will be an important side-effect of the project.
There will be a recording session (video and audio). The material will be published online providing the composer and performers consent to this.
