Matera - Basilicata, Italy
Posted: 11 May 2020


12 May 2020 - 15 Jul 2021

The ARTEría Association and the Historiographic Archive of Raffaele Giura Longo have organized Concavo & Convesso, a competition for composers, four of whom will be selected to write works on the text of "La Ballata della Vucchiara ovvero tutto il miele è finito!" by Raffaele Giura Longo.
Three international composers and one local composer will be selected by an international jury and commissioned to make works that may include all or part of the text, or that simply may be inspired by it. The work may be purely musical, or may also include performative elements.
The final works will be performed in Spring 2021 in Matera, by an French-Italian ensemble of six performers whose practice is rooted in experimental music and performance, contemporary musical theatre, minimalism, and the interpretation of open works and graphic scores.
The competition is aimed towards composers whose work may be broadly categorised as experimental, or having roots in that tradition.
Closing date: 15 Jul 2020
