NEW FORUM Jeune Création

NEW !! 


Young composers competition
March 2012 - March 2014

Grame, ensemble mosaik, ChampdAction and Ensemble Orchestral Contemporain launch the NEW FORUM - jeune  création, an international competition for young composers/sound artists that will be held in several European cities, from March 12th, 2012 to March 11th, 2014.

(selection closed)

We invite composers to think out of the box, to start a creational process together with three very different ensembles with different backgrounds and an international reputation. Developing musical ideas supported by an international network under ideal conditions is the goal of this competition.
We invite young artists to hand in their ideas, their artistic approaches to “networks”. An international jury preselects 12 candidates who are invited to Biennale Musiques en Scène in Lyon to discuss their drafts of a project with the jury. The six selected laureates have then the chance to work in residencies in Lyon (Grame), Marseille (Gmem) and Antwerp (Champdaction). The results - commissioned by NEW  FORUM - jeune  création - will then be presented in Europe.
