KEEP COMPOSERS WEIRD takes place for 8-10 days in Austin, Texas. Participants will be required to compose a work specifically for the program. Each composer will have the opportunity to work with an ensemble in a rehearsal and a recording session at Cacophony Records, recording and engineering done by Grammy winning producer, Erik Wofford. All tracking will be done in Austin, mixing and mastering will be conducted post-program and sent to the composer (composer retains all rights to music). A performance will be booked in advance and promoted to showcase each composer. In addition, conferences, panels, and mixers will be held at various venues around town to provide networking opportunities. Participants will be provided with housing (house includes full kitchen, living room, backyard, Wi-fi, TV, A/C etc), catered breakfasts, lunches.

 INK STILL WET
Summary:Young Composers' Workshop
Deadline: None
Date Posted: 04 January 2018
Details: In Composer Conductor's INK STILL WET workshop, young composers work together with the Composer in Residence and the Tonkünstler Orchestra.

Grafenegg tinkers with the sounds of our time . In composer-conductor workshop INK STILL WET, Composer in Residence Ryan Wigglesworth works on the scores with young composers and performs them together with the Tonkunstler Orchestra under the direction of the workshop participants.

Wigglesworth knows that conducting forms your own musical language. His compositions emerge from deep processes in which he first interrogates himself. "I think it does not make sense to think of the audience at the first note," he says. "You have to forget that you write for an audience to find out what you want to say. Otherwise, everything becomes a manipulation. But in the end it's about the purity of the idea, and that usually reaches its audience. "A philosophy he will debate with the workshop participants.

The young composers can apply for a score in Grafenegg and are selected in a selection process. INK STILL WET is about questions of when a work is finished, what technical rules have to be followed, how to pour the hitherto unheard-of sound - and, above all, how to perform works that are just going to be performed. " in fresh ink »were noted and revised. For this practical implementation, the musicians of the Tonkünstler Orchestra work closely together with the Composer in Residence and the INK STILL WET participants.

INK STILL WET is as much a compositional workshop as a sound laboratory in which the foundations of music are measured in our present day. The results are finally heard in a large final concert in the auditorium. Admission to the concert is free.
