Timothy Cape and Áine Mallon awarded composer residencies at the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris

The Centre Culturel Irlandais and the Contemporary Music Centre, Ireland are delighted to announce the recipients of the CMC composer residencies, co-funded by CMC Ireland and the CCI, as part of the CCI's annual artist residency programme for 2024-25. Following a call among CMC-represented artists, Timothy Cape and Áine Mallon have been awarded month-long residencies at the CCI in Paris to develop new composition projects. 

I'm delighted to have been awarded the residency at CCI in Paris - I'll be spending the time working with the musicians of the Paris-based group soundinitiative, creating a new piece for them commissioned with funds from the Diaphonique grant. I'm a big fan of some of the previous composers who have done this residency so it means a lot to me to be involved.

I am honored to announce my selection for the 2024/25 residency at the Centre Culturel Irlandais. My heartfelt gratitude extends to the CCI, Paris for awarding me with this prestigious opportunity, and to the Contemporary Music Centre, Ireland for their generous co-funding of the residency.  I am incredibly excited to spend my time in Paris focusing on the creation of a substantial orchestral work, as well as soaking up all the amazing culture the city has to offer.
