 EtM Ridgewood Bushwick Composer Residency
Summary:Composer Residency
Deadline: 31 October 2017
Date Posted: 11 October 2017
Details: Applications are now available for the 2017-18 EtM Ridgewood Bushwick Composer Residency.

Exploring the Metropolis (EtM) is sponsoring the second round of the EtM Ridgewood Bushwick Composer Residency.

EtM is committed to resolving the workspace needs of the performing arts community in New York City. This pilot program, the second implementation of our Queens Workspace Initiative, will provide free, long-term studio space to composers who are in need of a dedicated workspace outside of their home.

This residency will provide one composer with use of consistent, suitable rehearsal space over a six-month period starting in January 2018 to develop and create new work at the Ridgewood Bushwick Senior Citizens Council. The composer will receive a stipend of $2,500.

There is no requirement to complete a piece of work during the residency. The composer is required to perform one free public program in coordination with the Ridgewood Bushwick Senior Citizens Council. In addition, the composer agrees to host an introductory Meet and Greet with residents of RBSCC: Plaza de Los Ancianos.

Composers and composer/performers working in any genre, including but not limited to: classical, jazz, blues, rock, Latin, hip-hop, opera, musical theater/Broadway, experimental/new music/electronic, world music, sacred, and works across genres. Previous EtM Composers-in-Residence (from either the Con Edison Composer Residency or the Choreographer + Composer Residency) are eligible to apply for this new program.

 Musicians (incl. composer) and electronic programmer wanted, Billie Ray Martin
Summary:Set play to music
Deadline: 01 January 2018
Date Posted: 19 April 2017
Details: Closes: 1st January 2018
Location: London
Type: Part time (volunteer)
Salary: Unpaid

Jazz or Classically trained musicians as well as electronic programmers for ‘strange’ music project wanted.

We am looking for a rhodes player and someone who plays ‘weird’ instruments like Ondes Martenod for writing new songs for a new album and with a view to recording an album and performing the pieces live.

The style will be stripped down songs, emotional, moody, soulful but ‘weird’.

For reference please check on youtube:

‘Please forgive my heart’ played live by Bobby Womack and Damon Albarn

and:

Thom Yorke (Radiohead) Cymbal Rush (live)

Other influences to be explored are French chansons of the 60’s and all kinds of strange stuff – there is no limit.

There is also a play set to music I’m working on and again I’ll be looking for co-composers/arrangers etc. More in person.

PS. If you’re not trained but simply mad, that’s good too.
