COMPOSERS Apply for Sound and Music & Sounding Motion Scheme. Deadline Noon Monday 9 November 2015

As part of the Portfolio programme, Sound and Music and Sounding Motion offer an opportunity for up to three composers to develop new small-scale works for dance. An experimental and highly integrated development process lies at the heart of Sounding Motion’s work. Participants will have the opportunity to develop their collaborative skills and creative practice in workshops as they work in close partnership with instrumentalists, choreographer and dancers to develop a new short dance work for presentation by the company in late 2016. The work can be a study for a longer dance work or it might be a shorter stand-alone work. This residency provides a rich professional development opportunity for composers with a keen interest in dance – though not necessarily any personal experience of composing for it.
