RMN Music: International Composition Competition "Composition for Electric Guitar"

International Competition “Composition for Electric Guitar”

THE COMPETITION

Launched in collaboration with Award Winning performer and composer Sergio Sorrentino, in connection with the production of the new album Contemporary Music for Electric Guitar and linked with the upcoming book written by S. Sorrentino, this competition has been developed to stimulate and promote the creation of new contemporary and experimental works for electric guitar as well as discover emerging composers and more established ones.

This is a great opportunity if you would like to have your work released and performed together with some of the masterpiece of our time.

RMN Classical will produce an album that will focus on the contemporary repertoire for electric guitar, tentative release date is autumn/winter 2018.

In connection with the project is the upcoming book written by S. Sorrentino. With this book, the author aims to promote such repertoire on a large-scale and includes exclusive interviews with iconic composers and hands-on views on their way of composing music for electric guitar. Among the many composers featured in the book we can find Stravinsky, Stockhausen, Steve Reich, Gavin Bryars, Morton Feldman and Bryce Dessner - to name just a few.

The same composers have been considered for inclusion in the tracklist of the album release, and RMN Music will also focus on works by living composers.

THE PRIZE
The winning composer will receive official diploma and the work will be recorded by Sergio Sorrentino. The recording will be featured in the upcoming album release “Contemporary Music for Electric Guitar” (final title may be subject to change) which will be produced and published by RMN Classical (including high-quality design of the artwork, booklet + mastering) and distributed worldwide through RMN Music (all costs covered). The work will be added to Sergio Sorrentino's repertoire and scheduled for live concerts, and more performances will soon be announced. It will also be considered the opportunity to mention the winning work in S. Sorrentino’s upcoming book and the final album containing the winning work will be added to the prestigious British Library Sound and Music Archive.
