Are you interested in exploring new technologies and working closely with instrumentalists and sound designers? Gaudeamus invites composers (with no restriction of age or nationality) to write a new composition for violin, (bass) clarinet, piano/Seaboard and hybrid percussion* that will be workshopped in March 2022, developed during the following year and presented in September 2022 at Gaudeamus.

Ensemble Resilience is an innovative collective of musicians that aims to bring a new concept of sound to the contemporary music world. Its uniqueness is due to the synergy of three of the most elegant and expressive acoustic instruments, violin, clarinet and piano, and two recently invented electronic instruments. These are the MIDI Polyphonic Expression controller Seaboard® by Roli, and MATER, a hybrid-electronic percussion set created by members and associates of the ensemble. Ensemble Resilience‘s adventurous musicians are eager to explore new sounds and instrumental possibilities in a unique call for scores that will allow you to develop new ideas for electronics, supported by the two sound designers of Ensemble Resilience over the span of one year.
