LIVE! International Call for Scores 2019

mdi ensemble, legally represented by Associazione Musicadesso, advertises for an International Call for Scores finalized to a concert performance during Sound of Wander 2019, the annual concert series organized by mdi ensemble in Milan (Italy) in November 2019. The Call for Scores is opened to every composer aged under 35 of any nationality: mdi ensemble will select from four to six works.
Composers may apply following the rules below: Scores (maximum two for each candidate) will have to be written for solo instrument or for ensemble from 2 to 6 instruments selected among: flute, clarinet, violin, viola, piano.
Differently to previous editions, the use of electronics (live or tape) and / or amplification is admitted. The reduced amount of technical requests needed for the amplification or the electronics for a single piece will be considered during the process of evaluation.
Should the candidate send two scores, both of them will allow the use of electronics (live or tape) and or/amplification. Nevertheless, one of them will have to be for solo instruments or for chamber ensemble up to 4 musicians.
If the score requires instruments/objects other than the ones listed above (little percussion instruments, gadgets, etc.), composers must provide them to the ensemble in time for rehearsals; otherwise, the ensemble could decide not to perform the piece.
