LSO Jerwood Composer+ 2019/20

The London Symphony Orchestra is pleased to recruit two composers for the LSO Jerwood Composer+ scheme's third year.

LSO Jerwood Composer+ supports composers in programming, planning and delivering two chamber-scale concerts in Jerwood Hall, LSO St Luke’s including work of their own developed through the programme. Composers will gain entrepreneurial skills around programming for specific audiences, planning and organising events, marketing and budgeting, gaining knowledge and practical experience in how to establish and promote themselves professionally.

Guidance and expertise will be provided by LSO staff and an external mentor. Composers will also access compositional workshops and masterclasses with other composers and LSO musicians, supporting the development of their own musical practice.

Two composers will be accepted onto the LSO Jerwood Composer+ scheme, which will run from September 2019 for up to 16 months. Applications are welcome from outstanding emerging composers from any musical background who would like to gain skills to support their professional development, work with world-class orchestral musicians and contribute to the concert programme and its developing audiences at LSO St Luke’s. Applicants may not be in full time formal education or training due to the time required.

We are particularly interested in applications from underrepresented groups. Further information and application details are available on the LSO Jerwood Composer+ webpage.

LSO Jerwood Composer+ is generously supported by Jerwood Arts

Based at LSO St Luke’s, LSO Soundhub provides a flexible environment for composers to develop and showcase new work through exploration, collaboration and experimentation; and access to vital resources, state-of-the-art equipment and professional support.

We will offer up to four new members the opportunity to undertake projects with LSO musicians or independently, with membership for one year from September 2019, initially. LSO Soundhub is open to UK-based composers who create music using any medium. Composers must demonstrate an active interest in, and some experience of, working with classical musicians.

London, United Kingdom Autumn 2019 Residency Cohort 2 (1 Month Program): 24 OCT 2019 - 24 NOV 2019

The CENTRE FOR THE STUDY OF SUBSTRUCTURED LOSS is now accepting applications for our last scheduled residency programming cohort of 2019. Artists, researchers, and other arts professionals are encouraged to apply (subject to capacity).

The artist-in-residence candidates are selected annually through an open call application process or in some cases, by invitation. The program supports emerging and established artistic professionals/researchers working in any medium/discipline. Residents can continue with existing projects or undertake new research.

The residency program encourages experimentation and the development of multi/interdisciplinary studio work grounded in research within the field of grief and bereavement. The work can encompass and explore varying physical and emotional processes (or loss) that people undergo.

Previous residents and collaborators have undertaken both theoretical-historical and practice-led projects working with, but not limited to the following subject matter: the aging process and the elderly; cancer, disease, and terminal illness; sex work and sexual assault; abortion and miscarriage; suicide and survivorship; mental illness, mental health, and trauma; spousal and familial loss; and associated grief and bereavement-centered themes etc.

Participants are expected to present their findings when the residency program concludes.

The residency aims to provide working artistic professionals with a platform for research and production; one that may lead to expanded possibilities, collaboration, a broader network, and possibly new works. 

We accept applications in English only, to accommodate our international jury members. However, language proficiency is not a criteria for evaluation by the jury unless it directly relates to the chosen discipline/practice. Applications are assessed and chosen by a jury on the basis of merit, and the ability the CENTRE has to support the proposed research or project. 

The application form and all applicable attachments must be submitted by email.
