Composition Marathon - Scottish Music Centre 24th March

A unique project inspired by Bang on a Can's inconic performance festivals. DEADLINE: 1st February 2012
In March 2012 Bang on a Can are coming to Scotland for Glasgow Concert Halls’ Minimal: Extreme and to mark this occasion, the Scottish Music Centre are running a unique project, a Composition Marathon inspired by the organisation’s iconic performance festivals.
The aim of this project is to challenge composers to create a brand new work in the Scottish Music Centre over the course of 8-12 hours on Saturday 24th March. The marathon will commence with each composer being partnered with the ensemble* who will be performing their work and it is requested that they remain on hand throughout the day to workshop and rehearse. Additionally, guidance and support will be offered by members of Bang on a Can.
Following this, on Sunday 25th March, performers will rehearse the completed scores, culminating in a final performance in the Old Fruitmarket from 3pm.
