Sound And Music announce new residency opportunities

This winter's open call for composers and curators launched

Sound And Music have announced their latest initiative for contemporary composers. Claiming it to be their response to feedback from artists who say they desire to “shake up the UK's touring industry”, SAM have launched what they call Composer-Curator, which they describe as “a space for artists to take risks and to curate, organise and run their own grassroots event series”. The scheme is looking for UK based composers to curate and produce a performance series, festival or tour.

In other opportunity news, the new music organisation has teamed up with London Graduate Orchestra to offer two composers the chance to develop new works for them. More details can be found via Sound And Music's website.
