MATA Jr. Call for Scores
Application Deadline: Wednesday, March 3, 2017
We accept all music: sound art, video, electronic, found instruments, toys, installations, fully notated, improvised, and everything in between. A distinguished panel of MATA’s directors, composers, and performers will select six composers to participate in MATA Jr. 2017.
Each selected composer will be paired with an emerging-composer mentor and asked to write a new work — which must be completed during the summer of 2017 — for Face the Music, the renowned teen new-music ensemble based at the Kaufman Music Center. Works will be rehearsed and performed in concert in New York City in November 2017. Composers must plan to attend the performance; MATA cannot provide for transportation costs.
Composers who have applied previously but were not accepted are welcome to apply again. Composers whose works have been performed previously must wait one year before applying again.
Scores: All scores must be in PDF format. We cannot open Finale, Sibelius or other notation files. Please name your file with your last name and the title of the work. (Example: Mozart_EineKleineNachtmusik.pdf). If scores are not pertinent to your work, please provide a pdf explaining how the sound is created / produced.
Audio: mp3 format. We strongly encourage you to submit an audio realization of your work. Please name your file with your last name and the title of the work. (Example: Mozart_EineKleineNachtmusik.mp3)
Results will be announced by May 2017, with scores and parts due in early summer 2017.
This is not the call for submissions for the 2018 MATA Festival, which can be found here.
