New Digital Noisy Nights – Call for Composers!

Grid of musicians for Digital Noisy Nights
Following a successful first online edition, we are excited to announce a second round of new music concerts that you can enjoy from your own home. Are you a composer looking for a challenge?

Digital Noisy Nights provide an outlet to hear emerging new musical ideas and voices in our new social distanced reality. Every Friday at 3PM for the month of June, these five outstanding Red Note musicians will bring you the best examples of brand new music played from scratch from their homes to yours:

  • Ruth Morley – Flute,
  • Jo Nicholson – Bass Clarinet,
  • Tom Hunter – Percussion,
  • Jackie Shave – Violin,
  • and Duncan Strachan – Cello.

Call for Adult Composers (18+)

(18 or younger? Check out the call for younger composers)

If you are an emerging, student (18+) or amateur composer interested in writing a 5-min long piece for a solo instrument, send your name and contact email to admin [at] rednoteensemble.com by Friday 22 May (12:00PM).

That same day, we will get back in touch to inform you about the instrument you have been assigned to write for from the options above – this will be a random allocation. You will also receive the link to a brief instrument demo filmed by each player outlining capabilities, techniques, notation, etc.

Then the challenge is on! You have 1 week to write your piece for that specific instrument. Please submit in pdf format by 5pm on Friday 29th May to admin [at] rednoteensemble.com. Please note the scores should not include electronics or any pre-recorded parts, and consider that concerts are rehearsed and performed in a short timeframe.

The 15 compositions selected by the players will be performed on our YouTube channel on 3 separate concerts: 5th June, 12th June and 19th June.

Challenge accepted?

Please help us spread the word by sharing this call with your friends and contacts.

We are looking forward to keeping music alive and new music lovers connected online.
