Noisy Nights at sound - Call for Scores

Noisy Nights at sound - Call for Scores

Friday, 21 May 2021, 5.00pm

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.

Are you an emerging or amateur neurodiverse composer (18+ years old) interested in writing for Red Note?
Then this call is for you.

- Maximum length 5 minutes;
- Instrumentation is Clarinet, Violin, Viola and Cello;
- Only new works composed for this call;
- Deadline 21st May (5PM – UK time).

Please note the scores should not include electronics or any pre-recorded parts, and take into account that concerts are rehearsed and performed in a short timeframe.

Full score and parts in PDF format to be submitted online via Google forms (click here) or via email to [email protected] by 5pm (UK time) on Friday 21st May. Please include full name and contact in your submission email. Late submissions will not be accepted.

A maximum of 5 pieces will be selected by a panel of musicians and composers from Red Note and sound. All submissions will receive feedback from our panel if requested. Selected composers will be notified on the 31stMay and invited to join the rehearsals over zoom on the 9th June.

If you have any questions or access requirements, please contact Katja on [email protected]. She will be your point of contact if you need help or advice.

Happy composing!
