Music Current Festival Commission 2023

Monday, 10 April 2023, 11.55am

MUSIC CURRENT FESTIVAL invites composers to propose new works for DUBLIN SOUND LAB to be performed in Dublin, April 2024. Submissions may be for any combination of flute, clarinet/bass clarinet, violin, cello, piano, MIDI keyboard, electronics, or video, but we would especially like to receive proposals that engage critically with technology, media, or collaborative performance.

We will review proposals according to flexible criteria, including consideration of who might benefit or contribute most through engagement with the festival over an extended period. One applicant will be offered an award of €4,000. The commissioned composer will work closely with Dublin Sound Lab until April 2024, and may be invited to give public presentations on their work or to contribute to outreach, mentoring, or other professional development programmes in collaboration with our production partners.

Previous Music Current commissioned composers include: Anna Murray, Silvia Rosani, Patricia Martinez, Seán O'Dálaigh, Panayiotis Kokoras, Brona Martin, and Alessandro Massobrio.

You can apply using the link below where you will be asked to supply contact details, biographic information, compositional examples, and a description of your proposal.

Application deadline; 11:59pm (GMT), Monday 10 April 2023.
Notification of selection; Wednesday 31 May 2023.
