La Biennale di Venezia
BIENNALE COLLEGE - MUSICA COMPOSERS 2
The workshop is dedicated to young composers interested in site-specific sound installations.
The selected composers will have the opportunity to create a new site-specific sound installation
under the supervision of the Artistic Director of the Biennale Musica, Lucia Ronchetti, supported
by different tutors.
The new sound-installation by the selected composers will be presented within the Biennale
Musica (17-26 September 2021).
The two selected composers will get the opportunity to create their world premieres in three
different stages. The first stage will be aimed at the conception of the project under the supervision
of the tutors; in the second stage the selected composers will be given the possibility to work on
the CIMM (La Biennale di Venezia Centre for Computer Music and Multimedia) Studios and
complete the project; the third stage will focus on the rehearsals and production of the new project.
Biennale College Musica will select a number of suitable locations in the city, as to enable each
composer to select his/her preferred location.
The voice material can include any kind of pre-recorded voice files. If new samples are needed, the
selected composers can collaborate with the bass Andreas Fischer.
Biennale College Musica team under the supervision of the Artistic Director of the Music
Department will be in communication with each composer throughout the whole process of
composition, from April to September 2021 and will also be available for suggestions and revisions
of the new projects.
