New pieces for glissotar
Deadline: 31 Jan 2021
Sonus Foundation for the Support of New Music and Contemporary Performing Arts issues a call for scores for composers to submit short pieces, „musical aphorisms” for a new instrument: glissonic tarogato (glissotar). Selected pieces will be recorded by Daniel Vaczi and published on our webpage, and the best pieces will be performed at a concert in April 2021 in the Hold Street Church in Budapest, Hungary.
About the instrument
Dániel Váczi has been working since 2016 with Tóbiás Terebessy on the development of woodwind instruments making continuous pitch (glissando). The first model is the glissotar that is a hybrid tarogato-soprano saxophone. József Tóth, one of the most important tarogato builders, gave assistance to the development. A detailed description of the instrument is available in this document. (A video presenting the instrument is coming soon). Further information here. Some recordings are available here, here, and here.
About the expected piece
The piece should be a minimum of 30 seconds and a maximum of 1 minute 30 seconds long.
Eligibility and application
Composers of any age, nationality, and at any stage of their career are eligible to apply. Submit this online form by January 15, 12 pm (CET).
The pieces to be recorded and to be performed will be selected by a jury. The composers of the selected pieces will be informed by January 31, 2021.
There is no submission fee for this call.
If you have any questions regarding the program or the submission process, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org at least two working days before the application deadline.
