Four open calls for composer residencies: swimming pools, choirs and Cornwall

The Sound And Music organisation has four open calls for composers to work on specific projects with a mentor to develop new work. Musarc is looking for up to four composers to work with the Musarc choir, to develop work to be performed in 2014. Steve Beresford is looking for up to six improvisors for a two week residency on the Cornish Coast followed by a performance in Cornwall and at The Vortex for Mopomoso. Three composers will work with the Ruthless Jabiru orchestra, and two composers will work with Newtoy on new work to be performed at Wet Sounds swimming pool concerts across the UK.
