Writing the Future – An open call for music creators
The London Sinfonietta is seeking four music creators to join the next round of Writing the Future, an opportunity to create a new work for an ensemble of up to six London Sinfonietta musicians and build a creative working relationships with the ensemble. In recognition of our on-going wish to challenge the status quo and champion change, we are looking for project ideas which would expand the possibilities for a contemporary music ensemble, reflecting our evolving role as an ensemble in the 21st Century, whilst also representing something new within your own practice. The project will culminate in a performance of each new work by the London Sinfonietta as part of our main season.
Our call is open to all music creators from all cultural and musical backgrounds who are passionate about their art form and would like the opportunity to apply that experience to writing for a contemporary music ensemble. We are particularly seeking relationships with artists from a non-classical background such as sound artists and improvising musicians, as well as music creators from historically under-represented groups or communities such as artists representing the Global Majority, LGBTQ+ communities, and those who identify as disabled. As part of the scheme we will support each music creator with a bursary, relevant artistic mentoring and a research and development budget.
Applications are now open. For more information, please see our scheme description. To apply, please submit an application by Monday 22 January 2024.
Late applications will unfortunately not be accepted. Please aim to submit your application as far in advance of the deadline as possible to facilitate the processing of applications.
