New Music Biennial 2019 – call for proposals

April 5

The call for proposals for New Music Biennial 2019 is now open. The New Music Biennial includes new music from across all genres. Works should be no longer than 15 minutes in duration.

Following the extremely successful New Music Biennial 2017 held in Hull City of Culture and Southbank Centre, we are delighted to announce the call for proposals for New Music Biennial 2019 is now open. New Music Biennial 2019 is presented in partnership with Hull Culture Company, London’s Southbank Centre and BBC Radio 3 with generous support from Arts Council England, Creative Scotland, Arts Council Wales, the Richard Thomas Foundation and NMC Recordings.

New Music Biennial 2019 will showcase up to 20 pieces of new music including brand new commissions and pre-existing works.

The selection of pieces will be made via the open call. Applicants may apply for support for either:

new commissions (up to £20,000 can be applied for)
existing pieces written within the last 15 years.by living UK-based composers (up to £10,000 can be applied for)
Please note: We are expecting applications from organisations. If you are a composer, this is a great opportunity for you to team up with an organisation to work with, either for commissioning a new work or re-performing an exceptional past work of yours.

The New Music Biennial includes new music from across all genres: from classical and chamber opera to jazz, folk and electronic. Works should be no longer than 15 minutes in duration in response to the New Music Biennial’s aim to create a pop-up, interactive way for audiences to discover new music.

We are looking for projects which:

contain distinctive and exceptional music
fit with the festival’s vision to celebrate the breadth and talent of those making new music in the UK, reaching new audiences through imaginative programming.

The deadline for applications is 5th April 2018 and the final programme will be announced in June/July 2018.
