For the project "Transatlantic Tapes" we are looking for a piece for accordion and electronics to be played by accordionist Olivia Steimel in two concerts in Berlin and Freiburg (Germany) in October/November 2021 and possibly also in 2022 in Germany and Switzerland.
Unfortunately, we cannot offer cash prizes. However, the chosen composition will be often played in public and will remain an integral part of the accordionist's repertoire. In addition, a professional audio and video recording of the piece will be made.
The call for scores is for female composers of any age from, residing in, or in some way connected to the Atlantic coast of Africa or Latin America. The piece can be a work in progress or a previously written one, ideally no older than two/three years. The electronic part is compulsory and can be fixed and/or live (maximum 4 channels).
