Redshift Music Society announces Call for Scores

Redshift Music Society announces Call for Scores

October 31, 2012

Redshift Music is seeking 'Postal Pieces' for a 2013 chamber music concert.

PROJECT: Redshift Music will present a unique concert event in 2013 inspired by the 'Postal Pieces' of James Tenney and others. The idea is simple: the entire score, musical concept or set of instructions for the piece has to fit on a postcard.

The performers for this concert will be the Redshift's ensemble-in-residence Negative Zed.

The Redshift Music Society was founded in 2001 in Vancouver, Canada with a focus on bringing the music of contemporary composers to the general public through unique musical events.
For more info on us check out our Past Events and Gallery pages at www.redshiftmusic.org or join us on Facebook www.facebook.com/redshiftmusicsociety

Redshift recently celebrated it's 10th Anniversary with a free downloadable 10-track CD Redshift X available at http://bit.ly/RedshiftX

Composers and practitioners of contemporary art music of any age or nationality are eligible.

Notation, instructions, or concepts must be written on an actual postcard.

Pieces can be of any duration but, as we are hoping to perform a number of them, very long pieces are less likely to be chosen.

Pieces can be open score or for specific instrumentation but note that the ensemble performing will be the Negative Zed Ensemble: flute (doubling alto and piccolo), saxophone (soprano, alto, baritone), guitar, percussion, piano (doubling mezzo voice), violin, cello, doublebass
