International Composers Festival
The Mizzou New Music Initiative is excited to announce the Eighth Annual Mizzou International Composers Festival, July 23 – 28, 2018 on the campus of the University of Missouri. July 20 and July 29 are travel days with events starting at 5PM on July 20, 2018 for selected resident composers.
Eight composers from around the world will be selected through a portfolio application process to compose a work to be performed by the internationally acclaimed new music ensemble, Alarm Will Sound. Composers will take part in discussions and masterclasses with Georg Friedrich Haas and Dan Visconti; take part in workshops with Alarm Will Sound and receive a professional live recording of the premiere performance of their work.
Composers selected as resident participants for the festival will be expected to compose a work for Alarm Will Sound’s complete instrumentation, see below, lasting up to 8 minutes in duration. Each selected resident composer must submit a finished preliminary score by April 16, 2018 for review by Alarm Will Sound, and professionally prepared scores (2) and parts of the final work are due by May 7, 2018. Due to rehearsal/technical demands we will not be able to program works that include electronics.
