CALL FOR MUSICAL PERFORMERS IN THE NETHERLANDS FOR ART FILM

My name is Min Oh, and I am a visual artist based in Amsterdam and Seoul. I am working on a series of musical pieces for my new film, in collaboration with Seokmin Mun, a composer based in Seoul, and looking for musicians to perform them. Since this is a film project, I need specific characteristics from the performers as well as musical expertise; therefore conversation in person through the interview is necessary for the casting. The film shooting will be in June in Amsterdam. If interested, please send me the CV and the video documentation of your performance to me (min@min-oh.net). Modest honorarium will be provided. The details are attached below.

MUSIC:
— 1. Solo/Duo: any instrument
— 2. Solo: piano
— 3. Solo: cello
— 4. Solo: violin
— 5. Ensemble: a conductor, violin, cello, piano, voice
All the music will have WRITTEN SCOREs. Approx. 3-5 minutes for each music piece.
