BFE/RMA Student Conference

Call for Papers

Ligeti Quartet Composition Workshop – EXTENDED CALL

As part of the conference, CeNMaS  are excited to be able to offer a one-day workshop for composers with our associate ensemble Ligeti Quartet. Pieces, movements or excerpts of up to 6 minutes’ duration scored for string quartet  will be played through, followed by discussion. 

Submit a pdf of your piece, movement or excerpt not longer than 6 minutes. Shorter durations are welcome.

Scores should be formatted in portrait orientation (preferably) unless the music particularly calls for being presented in landscape. Note that parts will not be required as the Quartet plays from score on A4-sized iPads (page turns should be managed helpfully, but do not need time/non-playing bars to execute).

Compositions should be accompanied by an abstract (max 300 words, as a separate word file) that briefly describes the aims and methods of the piece, for publication in the conference proceedings. 

EXTENDED CALL to submit scores and abstracts (2 separate pdf files) to by 9am Monday 14th November 2018. The email text should state your institution and the stage you are at in your studies. 

The conference composition panel will select 8 or so pieces to be presented.
