un/pitched presents: Metamorphosis with Lindsey Eastham

un/pitched: New Music Network is an organization focused on people and relationships behind musical performances. We bring together different institutions, communities, and their respective audiences through new music, and inspire young musicians through education. The un/pitched team is a mesh of composers and performers dedicated to creating new music in a fresh and unique way.

Our latest project, Metamorphosis, is centered around creating a new body of solo work for vibraphone & percussion. The successful applicant will use the selected instruments in a way that showcases their unique style and personality, and the audience should experience an evolution of creativity as each composer writes for the same collection of instruments but with their unique compositional voice.

Applications are due on October 15th, and the winning composer will be notified by October 20th who will then have until January 1st, 2019 to complete the commission.

These new works for vibraphone and auxiliary percussion will be performed and recorded by award-winning contemporary percussionist and Marimba One Vibraphone Artist, Lindsey Eastham. In addition to professional quality videos and several live performances, the winning composer will receive a $250 cash prize, be featured on the un/pitched website and social media, and have the option of selling hardcopy scores through un/pitched at all related performances (at full profit to the composer). Furthermore, the selected composer will become part of the un/pitched network including access to our resources, web publicity, and having priority access to upcoming un/pitched projects.

Please visit unpitched.org/metamorphosis for more information about the project, and to access the application form. We look forward to review your music!
