New music attracts a passionate and engaged audience, willing to participate actively in the music, rather than just being passive spectators.
From January to April 2019, DYCE partners will make a number of “educational” activities available to their audience and will be inviting them to follow a path towards a more conscious form of listening: being supported in understanding and appraising new music will help the audience evaluate the 12 scores performed on the 28th of April, in order to vote for the 4 best among them.
These activities will be open to anyone wishing to acquire critical means and a lexicon that will enable them to approach the complexity of contemporary music.
The Audience Development activities are planned by the 4 partners collectively and implemented independently at a local level, organizing live events (meetings, workshops, lessons, concert-lessons…) and making audios, videos and text content, amongst others, available on the DYCE website.
On the 28th of April 2019 the 12 pieces that have won DYCE’s composition competition will be performed in four concerts by the four DYCE partners.
The four concerts will take place on the same day, at different times in the four partner cities, with a streaming broadcast from each concert hall to the other three. As a result, the audiences in Milan, Oslo, Seville and Tallinn will be able to listen to all 12 pieces: 3 live and 9 in streaming. Special attention will be given to the quality of the streaming, in order to guarantee a perfect and pleasant listening experience.
The video-recording of the concerts will be available on the DYCE website for those wishing to listen to the compositions again.
Several days after the 28th of April 2019, the audiences which attended the concerts in the four towns may vote, choosing 4 scores from the 12 they listened to (live and in streaming).
