New Voices - Sound and Music
Deadline: 25 Jun 2021
New Voices is our artist development programme that supports composers at pivotal stages of their careers to explore new ideas, new sounds and new music.
Each project is unique from composer to composer and year to year and that excites us.
Each year we support eight composers over 18 months with coaching, mentoring and a financial grant to create a new piece of work and share it with new audiences.
New Voices is a unique opportunity for composers to take essential time to explore and develop their work. Whether you live in an urban or rural environment, whether you trained at a conservatoire or are self-taught, whether you produce electronic or acoustic work, or whether you have many years’ experience or consider yourself ‘emerging’. We know there isn't one model that will or should fit everyone.
How does it work?
This programme is open to composers and music-makers of all backgrounds and genres.
Successful applicants are enrolled on an 18-month programme and receive an artist grant, a production grant, and access to coaching, mentoring, and one to one support with an allocated Creative Project Leader. All shortlisted applicants will be eligible for our Seed Award.
You will spend six months in the Discovery Phase — exploring ideas and developing your work. This is followed by 12 months of the Activity Phase, where we support you to realise and deliver the project you have envisioned.
You can read details about the programme on our registration page.
