CALL FOR PROPOSALS FOR A NEW PIECE FOR CELLIST: SÉVERINE BALLON

A COMPOSITION FOR CELLO AND ELECTRONICS

PURPOSE: SELECTION OF TWO SOUND ARTISTS FOR A CREATIVE RESIDENCY AT ART ZOYD STUDIOS

CONTEXT: After the call for projects "V.O. Voltage Overdrive" and "Symphony for the day when cities burn", this one is part of an approach that has been part of Art Zoyd Studios for several years, which aims at an extension of the acoustic or electronic instrument, in order to respond to new writing or to encourage it. This call also aims at an aesthetic opening towards new compositional approaches mixing acoustic and electronic. It also follows two projects with the composer and cellist Séverine Ballon, who was receptive to this approach.
