Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival call for proposals

Artists have been invited to perform at its free-to-attend Shorts series

Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival’s 2018 Shorts series will take place on 19 November. The festival has put a callout for emerging artists across the UK to apply to perform at the event. The proposal, say the organisers, should be for a 20 minute performance of experimental and contemporary music. Applications should include the title and concept of the intended piece, along with all other relevant information, be it duration, technical requirements, and so on.

Sukitoa o Namau, who performed during last year’s Shorts series, commented: “It has been such a nice experience to be part of the 40th edition of hcmf//… It has a truly inspiring programme and vision behind it, involving the audience in today’s sound practices and offering unique listening experiences.”

The deadline for proposals is 21 May. More information can be found on HCMF's website.
