Sequenza21 is pleased to scoop the rest of the world wide web and announce the most exciting news of the day in the world of new music.
On December 4 and 5, the Lost Dog Ensemble, in residence with the Astoria Music Society, will be playing a concert of . . . works by Sequenza21 composers!! The December 4 concert will be in Astoria at the very hip Waltz-Astoria Café, and the following night we’ll be at the Good Shepherd Presbyterian Church on Manhattan’s Upper West Side (right by Lincoln Center –– an institution that will certainly be feeling a little bashful that night).
Okay. Now here’s the good part.
THIS IS A CALL FOR SCORES!!!
The regulations are a bit tighter this time, so read closely, y’all:
- Submissions are limited to the following instruments: flute, clarinet, violin, cello, and piano.
- Pieces using subsets of this ensemble are especially encouraged, though don’t be afraid to send us your Pierrot piece if you think it’s your best.
- Solo pieces are also acceptable.
- Pieces should be a maximum of 12 minutes long, One submission per composer.
- As for electronics, talk to us about the requirements, and we’ll let you know if they’re feasible.
Next, let’s be clear about something: we’re mostly interested in composers who actually blog here or who actually take part in the threads. Now, if you’ve never made your voice heard on S21 and you really want to send a piece, that’s fine. But others who have posted will be ahead of you in line.
Postmark deadline: July 16th. So time’s a little tighter this time, too. But we have our reasons, friends.
To submit: send me an email (my address is down in the credits bar to the left), and I’ll send you the address.
