The RED NOTE New Music Festival Composition Workshop will help composers currently enrolled in undergraduate or graduate programs widen their creative perspectives and hone their craft through live-streamed rehearsals with guest performers ONIX Ensamble and Left Coast Chamber Ensemble and online master classes and presentations with distinguished guest faculty composer Martin Bresnick. Invited participants will each compose a 5 to 10-minute piece for one of the guest ensembles. Each participating student composer will have the opportunity to interact with the guest ensembles during live-streamed rehearsals, and a performance of each new composition will be posted on the festival website. Each composer will receive a recording of his or her piece. Professor Bresnick and the resident faculty composers will offer comments and suggestions and will hold online master classes with all participating student composers. Participants will discuss their compositional ideas, techniques, and aesthetics with the faculty and other fellows, and selected events may be streamed online for audiences worldwide to experience live.

Gilgamesh International Composition Competition

Category: Call for scores
Deadline: November 1, 2020
Fee: $15 USD

Application Web Link

The Epic of Gilgamesh, from ancient Mesopotamia, begins with five Sumerian poems about Gilgamesh, king of Uruk, dating from the Third Dynasty of Ur (c. 2100 BC). The Epic is recorded on a set of twelve clay tablets dating to the seventh century BC, found in the Library of Ashurbanipal in the Assyrian capital of Nineveh. Gilgamesh became the hero par excellence of the ancient world—an adventurous, brave, but tragic figure symbolizing man's vain but endless drive for fame, glory, and immortality. We are looking for chamber music that is inspired by the story of Gilgamesh and Assyrian culture.

-Eligibility: Any composer regardless of age, nationality or professional level is eligible.

-Instrumentation: Full scores of any style or aesthetic direction for 1-8 performers may be submitted. One Instrument per player: Flute (Piccolo), B-flat Clarinet (Bass Clarinet), French Horn, Violin, Cello, Harp, Percussion (List of available percussion instruments) & Duduk.

-Duration: 5-8 minutes maximum; multi-movement works accepted.
