We invite composers, musicians, instrumentalists, singers and music technologists to submit ideas for new music works to be developed and performed in a Collaborative Composition Workshop, 15–18 April 2020, during MUSIC CURRENT FESTIVAL, Dublin.

We are especially interested in proposals which are clear in concept but which are not yet fully realised, and which would benefit from practice-based collaborative development to complete and perform the work.As many as ten participants will be selected to collaborate in a series of composition workshops and to develop and realise their works in concert at Project Arts Centre, 18 April 2020.

Submissions can include devised works or concepts for collaborative composition and performance for any combination of flute, synthesiser and live electronics (Moog Matriarch semi-modular synthesiser, Eventide H8000FW multichannel hardware DSP, Behringer X32 Compact audio console), fixed-media, multichannel loudspeaker system, computer, synthesiser, midi controllers, or any other instrumental or vocal forces that the participant can supply. We anticipate that the participants will be able to realise their own works, or to be able to source suitable collaborative musicians and partners from amongst the workshop participants to help perform or realise their work.
