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).
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.
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
Each program must include at least one work by a living Singaporean or Singapore-based composer
Links to audio samples (if any)
50-word biographies for each program personnel (or ensemble biography where appropriate)
High resolution headshots for each program personnel (or ensemble photograph where appropriate)
