Resonance Residencies

Resonance Residencies

Monday, 19 October 2020, 10.00am

Resonance is Opera North’s workshop programme for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic professional musicians and composers, working in any genre, and based in the north of England.

It’s a unique opportunity to develop new ideas, to collaborate with performers from other disciplines, and to take your work in new directions.

Following our successful, socially distant ‘Lockdown Edition’, we’re seeking applications for next spring’s Resonance programme, and planning for a return to collaborations in person.

If you’re interested in testing an exciting possibility, exploring a great musical idea, in telling a story through music, in collaborating with a filmmaker or visual artist – or something else altogether – we want to hear from you.

The residency could be your first step towards making the project, or part of a longer process that you are working on.

– Applicants must be from a Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic background and live in the north of England
– Applicants must be professional composers, musicians or music-makers
– All applicants must be 18 years old or over at the time of application
– Lead artists who have been recipients of Resonance residencies previously are not eligible for further support in 2021

Subject to the COVID-19 situation, successful applicants for the new round of residencies will receive:
– Up to a week of free rehearsal space in Leeds with basic technical support
– A grant of up to £3,500 to cover fees for those involved and other costs
– Support and advice from technicians, producers and other specialists as needed
– An optional ‘work in progress’ performance opportunity for an invited audience, or a live stream opportunity
– An optional short film following the work in progress/performance
– Signposting to further opportunities

– Up to a week’s residency to take place in March or April 2021. There are four open residency opportunities in total.
