Music:Leeds Launchpad Commission

Call for new music or sound piece for L19.

In partnership with Music:Leeds’ Launchpad program, we are commissioning a brand new piece of music/sound for performance OR installation for L19 between Thursday 2nd May and Sunday 12th May 2019, by a new music creator based in the Leeds and West Yorkshire region.

We are looking to showcase an exciting new piece of music that should fit within our program of new ideas and innovation that could either be:

– Performed by musicians
– Through audio playback of electronic / electro-acoustic work
– An immersive installation of sound-art

Proposals must be for a new, original and previously unperformed piece of music/sound. Applications will be measured on:

– The proposed works’ quality
– It’s ability to engage an audience – works that do not include performers, are encouraged to develop an additional Audio-Visual element.

The new music creator will receive a commission fee to support the creation of this new piece of music, and additional support in “staging” the performance – contributing to the purchase or hire of materials, equipment, musicians and/or spaces – for a combined total of up to £4000. The performance will also be filmed and recorded.

The deadline for submission is Thursday 28th February 2019.
