residency and interdisciplinary artistic creation with the Ensemble Vortex
The Ensemble Vortex proposes the fourth edition of this innovative initiative, a sound creation experience that will take place in Geneva, supported by the Swiss Cultural Foundation Pro Helvetia, in partnership with L’Abri Foundation and the Archipel Festival. Five young sound artists will be chosen for three intensive work sessions, spread over one year, in close collaboration with the ensemble’s musicians and composers. During this period, the works can take diverse shapes: music compositions, sound installations, performances, music theater, and other hybrid works involving sound.
January 15, 2021 (the selected artists' list will be published on March 1, 2021)
Early-career artists: sound artists, graduated or self-taught musicians, performers, actors, visual artists, media artists, choreographers, artist collectives, recently graduated composers. This call for applications excludes students (fine and performing arts, music). Interregional and multidisciplinary collaborations are welcome. Applicants must be under the age of 36, hold Swiss nationality or be Swiss residents.
