How to Apply…                                 (Dates: 23 Feb – 09 March 2019)

This is an opportunity targeted at emerging contemporary art music composers who are either studying or in the first five years of launching their career as a composer.  ISAM fosters an inclusive and friendly creative environment, so there are no age or nationality restrictions, nor is there a specific compositional style prerequisite. Composers who apply will write a work for acoustic instruments – any line up of the ensemble in residence. So how do you apply?

Simply fill in the registration form below and provide us with some of your best music.

Best music…  as part of the application, we ask all applicants to supply two recent compositions in the following format:   pdf’s (of your Scores) + mp3’s (of acompanying audio, either live performances or midi).
