REMAIIN > Open Call for New Music Works (Latvia, Belgium, Portugal, Germany)
REMAIIN has announced an open call for musical proposals that deal with or incorporate non-western influences in experimental and new music.
REMAIIN (Radical European Music and its Intercultural Nature) is a project that investigates non-European cultural influences on the experimental, avant-garde and innovative music of the present and the past. The project’s primary activities are concerts, exhibitions and performances, paired with discourse activities that dissect the presented work in the context of the project’s topic. It is run by four organizations – three festivals and a concert series, namely Skaņu Mežs (Latvia), Wilde Westen (Belgium), Out.Ra (Portugal) and Kontraklang (Germany) – and is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
The project is looking for new works (compositions, concert programmes, performances, installations, etc.) and/or new collaborations between artists. Four works will be chosen by the project, and each one of them will be presented at least once in either Latvia, Portugal, Germany or Belgium by one of the participating organisations of the project. The involved festivals are: Out.Fest, Skaņu Mežs and the organisation Wilde Westen which organises several festivals (these include Sonic City, Festival Kortrijk and Bos! Festival) as well as the concert series Kontraklang.
When selecting the works, an emphasis will be put on artists based in Europe.
Deadline: 15 April 2020
