[Fondation Annette Vande Gorne] Appel à résidence. Call for residencies


Musiques & Recherches is a space for creation, research, promotion, information promotion, information and production of electroacoustic music and more precisely acousmatic music. The A.S.B.L. has composition studios, regularly welcomes artists in residence and helps amateur and professional artists, performers and creators interested in the provision of an acousmatic production unit.

From 2023 onwards, Musiques & Recherches will launch a call for residencies for composers under the age of 35, under the patronage of the Annette Vande Gorne Foundation. This recently created foundation has set itself the statutory task of the creation of acousmatic works by young composers in order to increase and perpetuate the repertoire.

A grant of up to €2500 to cover travel and living expenses for an acousmatic composition residency in a multiphonic studio of Musiques & Recherches.

Age limit: maximum 35 years old in 2023.

To participate, please send before 15 March 23:59 (Brussels time):

  • a CV
  • a written description of the multiphonic composition project (between 3 to 16 channels)
  • a work already produced

To fondationAVdG@musiques-recherches.be via a transfer service (dropbox, wetransfer, etc.)

The participants commit themselves (by signing) to be present in Ohain (Belgium) for 2 to 3 weeks, preferably in June or July 2023. They will be hosted by a technical director, and will then work on their own, independently.

The piece must be finished at Musiques & Recherches with an independent mastered file of the work session (+ stereo reduction). The instructions must be written at least one month before the premiere in concert by Musiques & Recherches.

A supplement of 250€ will be paid if the work is completed (in its two versions) at the end of the residency and documented in time (one month before the concert).

Programming of the piece in a Lisboa concert in Lisbon, Portugal, as part of the concert season of the DME project.

Invitation to attend the next festival L’Espace du Son, free accommodation at Musiques & Recherches.
