Echofluxx 17 and ABLAZE Records in conjunction with the Hong Kong New Music Ensemble are excited to announce a new opportunity for composers.
On May 6, 2017 eleven musicians from the Hong Kong New Music Ensemble will present a concert of new works at the Echofluxx 17 Festival of New Media, Music and Art in Prague, Czech Republic. The ensemble will be Violins (2), viola, cello, double bass, piano, flute, clarinet, bassoon, conductor and Chinese traditional instrument ZHENG.
Works must use at least six of the instruments listed
Works incorporating piano and zheng will be given priority and are preferred
Works using the entire group will be given priority and are preferred
Works whose duration is less than 10 minutes will be given priority and are preferred
There are no restrictions on Nationality, Age, Gender identification or Race. Works may have been premiered elsewhere and recordings are encouraged but scores are required. Applications DO NOT have to be anonymous.
This concert will feature all new works written by the successful composer applicants for this opportunity. The concert of works will be recorded ‘live’ and issued for worldwide distribution through NAXOS of America on the ABLAZE Records label.
All winning composers works will be partially subsidized for the performance, recording and distribution of their work. ABLAZE will extend to all winners a subsidized rate for the performance and recording. This means that usual costs for performance and final recorded music will be subsidized by ABLAZE so that we can offer to the winners a place on this concert and disc at very competitive, all inclusive rates. This is ABLAZE’s commitment to new music and we are very excited to hear/see your submissions.
