ABOUT JULIUS EASTMAN
A pioneering figure in contemporary music in the latter-half of the twentieth century, Julius Eastman was a pianist, vocalist, and composer whose rhythmically and emotionally-charged music has often been seen as a prototype for Minimalism. From his time as a member of the S.E.M. Ensemble at the University of Buffalo, giving acclaimed and controversial performances of works by Peter Maxwell Davies and John Cage, to his time in New York City, collaborating with artists such as Lukas Foss and Meredith Monk, Eastman’s music has always engaged with styles across genres and disciplines.

CONTEST OUTLINE
Applicants enter the contest by submitting a completed score and parts along with a written narrative about the motivation behind the music and its connection to composer Julius Eastman, if any. Above all, the judges for this year’s search are looking for work with a unique contemporary musical voice that represents the adventurous and questioning spirit embodied by a figure like Julius Eastman.

• The score must be no longer than 7 minutes and no less than 5 minutes.
