Call for Scores - Noisy Nights at sound

Deadline: 31 May 2021


Noisy Nights provide an outlet to hear emerging new musical ideas and voices in our new social distanced reality.

On this occasion we have partnered with sound, following the success and learnings from the Neurotribes conference, to showcase the talent of neurodiverse composers, supporting greater inclusion in contemporary classical music.

We are hoping to share the selected works live streamed or with a social distanced audience at a concert in Aberdeen on Sunday 13th June.
