Open call to collaborate with Shiva Feshareki

Residency launched by North of England music project Both Sides Now

An open call has been announced for a musician to spend five days working alongside UK composer and turntablist Shiva Feshareki on a project that culminates with a performance at Sounds Like This Festival in Leeds on 12 March. The residency, which falls under the umbrella music initiative Brighter Sound, is part of Both Sides Now, which focuses specifically on supporting women in music.

“We’re looking for openminded artists who are excited by experimentation, leftfield composition, and are curious to explore the interactions between time, space and sound,” reads the call out. “Your method of performance can be any form of instrument or gear, be it acoustic or electronic, conventional or unconventional.”

Applicants are welcome from women over 18 years old, who are based in Leeds and the surrounding area. Deadline is 11 February. More information can be found on the website.
