The Inaugural Winter Residency (between January 1st-March 31st, 2018)

MISE-EN_PLACE Bushwick was established in 2014 as a home for ensemble mise-en (, led by composer, conductor, and current Artistic Director Moon Young Ha ( Since its founding, MISE-EN_PLACE Bushwick has provided rehearsal, performance, and studio space in the heart of Brooklyn, New York to a growing body of musicians, composers, and multimedia artists from New York City and across the world. MISE-EN_PLACE Bushwick aims to bring a repertoire of challenging new sounds to diverse audiences, and impart an experience that is simultaneously multi-cultural, intellectually stimulating, and aesthetically pleasing. As a collective, its multi-national personnel has coalesced around a real aesthetic agenda, crystallized in the name mise-en: “mee”, in Korean, means “beauty”, and “zahn”, “to decorate.”

The residency at MISE-EN_PLACE Bushwick invites artists to live, work, and create in a focused and supportive environment. This residency is designed to support artists interested in exploring the boundaries of the space through music/sound art, performance, video, and audio/visual installations. Private studios and rehearsal spaces are provided for developing works-in-progress, and artists will have the opportunity to connect with the community through presenting lectures, workshops, masterclasses, exhibitions, concerts, or live performances. Projects may also be documented with provided audio and video recording equipment. This residency hopes to not only support the development of artists’ current works but also inspire future projects and possibilities for exchange.

Residencies may be for one week to one month, and solo artists and collaborative teams are welcome to apply. Living-in is optional but welcomed (note: living accommodations can support up to two individual artists or an artist collective at any given time). A public presentation of work is also optional, as artists may request an internal presentation or portfolio review. Artists interested in working with musicians may propose to collaborate with ensemble mise-en, and musicians’ exact availability will be determined pending proposal approval.
