The Night With… 2021 Call for Scores for Emerging Composers

Deadline: 22 March 2021 17:00

Call for scores for Emma Lloyd (violin and electronics)

Workshop: Online, 7th April, 2021

Concert date: tbc

The Night With… announces its fourth call for scores for emerging composers for works for Emma Lloyd to be performed at The Night With… Emma Lloyd concerts in 2021. The concert will also include works by Egidija Medeksaite and Émilie Girard-Charest.

From the initial submissions up to five works will be chosen for a workshop with Emma Lloyd. The workshop will be held online. Fewer may be selected at the discretion of the judges. One of the five works will be chosen to feature in The Night With… concerts and may be recorded for release on The Night With… Live Vol. Two. This call for scores is as much about finding and developing interesting new music and composers as finding a new work that will fit within the programme.

Scores will be assessed entirely anonymously and The Night With…, as an inclusive organisation based in Scotland, particularly welcomes applications from emerging female
and non-binary composers.

All scores must be submitted under a pseudonym. Any scores with identifying marks will be discarded.

The shortlist will be chosen by a panel consisting of Emma Lloyd, Matthew Whiteside CEO/Artistic Director of The Night With…) and a composer external from the programme.

Works are ideally for violin and electronics however solo violin works will be accepted.

Submissions can be between 5 and 10 minutes long.

Pieces must not have been premiered; however they do not necessarily have to be written for this call.

Prior workshop performances and readings do not count as a prior performance.

It is recognized that composers can begin their career at any age. Therefore ‘emerging’ is loosely defined by the composer themselves though will be at the discretion of judges.
