EÉ Call for Scores / Composer Search 1

Ensemble Échappé's Call for Scores & Search for the 2018 -20 Composer-in-Residence

Thank you very much to all of the composers that applied.  We had the incredible opportunity of listening to over 500 submitted works.  A committee comprised of EÉ musicians Brad Balliett, Doug Balliett, Felix Del Tredici, Vasko Dukovski, Izzy Gleicher, Conor Hanick, Emily Levin, Sam Jones, Lauren Williams, associate conductor and co-artistic director Benjamin Grow, and exiting composer-in-residence Nina Young carefully reviewed all submissions.  After much thought and deliberation, we are excited to reveal the results!

2018 - 2020 Composer-in-Residence: Selim Göncü

We are also thrilled to announce our new composer-in-residence: Selim Göncü. We will introduce his music this season with the US premiere of his Widerklang. Selim will commence his post in July 2018, spanning the 2018-19 and 2019-20 seasons.

Application Deadline: May 14, 2017 | 11:59 EDT.

Ensemble Échappé wants to learn more about your music.  Please apply to our Call for Scores for the opportunity to have your music programmed on our next season.  We are also delighted to announce the search for our new Composer-in-Residence position (2018-20).  This post includes the programming of your music throughout our next 2 seasons, the opportunity to contribute to artistic planning, and a commission for a new work to be premiered at the end of the residency.  We look forward to hearing from you.

Composers of any age or nationality are invited to submit scores to our dual call. One composer will be selected for the 2017-19 residence position, and at least 2 scores will be selected for programming next season in New York City.  There are no restrictions on the works submitted - pieces may have been previously performed, recorded, and/or awarded.  While we are open to performing works of any instrumentation (full ensemble and/or chamber music), we are a sinfonietta of the following instrumentation, 1111.1110. 2perc, hp, pno, strings (2.1.1.1.1), so works that fit into that subset will be more conducive to programming.  Please make a special note and include technical information for any works involving additional media (electronics, video, special staging, etc.).

Application requirements include:

  • Online application Form:  

    • Contact Information

    • CV/Resume

    • up to 2 work samples - PDF and audio / video recording,

  • $15 administrative submission fee

NOTE: Applicants to the Call for Scores may submit up to 2 works.  Those wishing to submit more scores must file a second submission.  Applications to the Composer-in-Residence position MUST supply the 2 work samples.

 

Materials will be reviewed by a committee comprised of members of Ensemble Échappé and an external adjudicator.  Results will be publicly announced by mid July 2017.
