DIGITAL GENERATIONS PROGRAM

About Digital Generations

s

CCO Digital Generations is an annual program providing early-career Canadian composers the opportunity to have their work digitally performed, produced and promoted by the Canadian Composers Orchestra. This years program has been generously funded by the Ontario Arts Council.

CALL FOR SCORES (DEADLINE: Oct 25th 2022)

 

The Canadian Composers Orchestra is seeking two early career composers of any race or gender to compose a new work for string trio. The newly created works will be professionally filmed and produced by audio, video and live streaming specialists Domenic Clark and Nikolay Nikitushkin for free online viewing. The works will also be displayed as score videos and promoted in the CCO's educational video series analyzing and advocating for further performances of the composers music. Select participants will additionally gain access to engraving lessons and marketing lessons with Andrew James Clark, and mentorship sessions and composition lessons with Tyler Versluis.

SELECTION PROCESS

Two composers will be selected by a jury of both composers and performers who will come to a decision by assessing the quality of the applicants notated musical scores. The selected composers will be expected to remain in communication with the Andrew James Clark throughout the winter and must also attend at least one rehearsal (in person or virtually) to provide interpretive directions to the performers prior to the recording date. Participants will be notified by November 1st 2022 and their string trios will be due by February 1st 2023.
