DYCE Call for Scores has come to its end.
We got 143 valid applications from all over Europe. Thanks to all composers for participating!
You can find the names of the 12 selected composers and scores here.
The 12 selected compositions will be performed in four concerts on the 28th of April. On that day, the four DYCE ensembles will perform the three winning pieces belonging to their European area.
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.
This way, audiences in Milan, Oslo, Seville and Tallinn will be able to listen to all 12 pieces: 3 live and 9 in streaming.
This is a very important event for DYCE and for our audiences. We have invited listeners to follow a path towards a more conscious form of listening, from January to April (www.dyce-project.eu/activities): being supported in understanding and appraising new music will help the audience evaluate the 12 scores, in order to vote for the 4 best among them.
The audiences and the musicians of the four ensembles will choose the four composers that will be commissioned to compose one new piece each, to be performed in April 2020.
