Call for applications 2020
The project for the Biennale College – Musica 2020 intends to promote and support the production of a maximum of 4 original compositions for solo instrument, live electronics and real-time video for a maximum length of 10 minutes, to be presented at the La Biennale di Venezia and disseminated online in the appropriate forms.
The selection is open, internationally, to teams consisting of a composer and a video artist, aged 35 years and under.
The composers, who need not necessarily be at their debut work, must present a project in association with a video artist that will involve an instrumental soloist, electronics and real-time video.
The electronic part will be produced at La Biennale di Venezia’s Centro Informatico Musicale e Multimediale (Center for Computer Music and Multimedia), which will provide the required hardware and software, under the guidance of a computer music producer, a sound-engineer, and a video designer who will also be present at rehearsals and at the performances as tutors for the selected young artists.
The work sessions in the studio will be organized after the selection process has concluded, and will be arranged with the teams on the basis of production needs. The electronic part must be sufficiently detailed in the presentation of the project. The feasibility of producing this part will be a fundamental factor in the selection process.
The application for participation must be submitted exclusively as a team (composer and video artist). No substitutions will be allowed within the selected teams.
