The Boston New Music Initiative announces a call for chamber works, open through March 15, 2015. Selected works will be programmed on our seventh concert season, which will run from August 2015 through June 2016. Composers may submit music with or without an electronic element for ensembles of 4-14 players. Composers may also submit music which involves a multimedia element from another art form (multimedia elements may be film, projected images and graphic scores, spoken word and/or acting, dance, spatial placement of musicians, visual art, or similar cross-discipline elements).
The organization will also host its first annual Young Composer Competition between April 1 and May 15, 2015. Composers meeting the eligibility of any BNMI-hosted calls are encouraged to apply to each competition.
Commissioning Competition and Chamber Scores update
Thank you to all those who submitted to our call for chamber works, which ended on December 15, and our third annual Commissioning Competition, which closed on October 15, 2014. Submissions from both calls are currently in review by our judging panels. Selected works from the chamber call will be programmed on our seventh concert season, which will run from August 2015 through June 2016. The selected composers, as well as the winner of the commissioning competition, will be notified no later than May 15, 2015. If for any reason selections have not been made by this date, we will send out an email notification to all submitting composers with an update.
A call for works for various instrumentation and fixed media works is currently open, and will run until March 15, 2015. Please see above for details and how to apply. The organization will also host its first annual Young Composer Competition between April 1 and May 15, 2015.
