Call for Proposals: “Resonates With” at NGS

The Composers Society of Singapore (“CSS”) is hosting a call for proposals for “Resonates With”, a series of performances of music by living Singaporean or Singapore-based composers, held at the National Gallery Singapore (NGS).

Important Details

  • We are curating programs for the events as below:
    • Rooftop Commission: Cao Fei:  26 July 2020 (Su)
      More information about the work, 浮槎 Fú Chá can be found in the link below.
    • Each program will be performed three times that day at the following times:
      • 2 PM – 2.30 PM
      • 3 PM – 3.30 PM
      • 4 PM – 4.30 PM
  • Selected proposals will receive a modest fee to aid in production/musician/composer etc. costs
  • You may propose programs that last approximately 30 min in length, and each program must include at least one work by a living Singaporean or Singapore-based composer
  • Backup plans in case the Gallery is closed to the public:
    • Should we all be able to physically enter the Gallery, the event will take place at the roof garden and will be live-streamed. If so, there only needs to be performed once. 
    • Should we not be able to physically enter the Gallery, the team should perform and live-stream the program from their homes/studios. The Gallery will make the necessary arrangements to host this on one of their social media platforms.
  • Applications will be considered from any composer, performer or creative collaborator, as long as at least one person on the project team is a CSS full member, student member or associate member

Please submit:

  • A proposal (no more than 1 page) should include:
    • How the program relates to the program’s theme/artwork 
    • The approximate duration of your proposed program
      • Programs should be approximately 30 min in length
    • The composers, works and performers for the program
