Treephonia: Live 2022 - Open Call for Composers




Treephonia invites composers to apply for our inaugural Open Call 2022, an opportunity to write new works inspired by trees and our environment.

Treephonia: Live 2022 explores new relationships between humankind and nature. It offers the experience of close connections between music, musicians, and audiences in shared natural and social spaces.

Six UK-based composers will be chosen by a selection panel and commissioned to write new works inspired by trees.

These new works will be performed by the professional Treephonia Ensemble at the Treephonia: Live concert series in London in Autumn 2022.


About Treephonia

In 2020, Treephonia was launched as an interactive website where users navigate a virtual Kensington Gardens and listen to new music inspired by trees.

17 composers from the Royal College of Music wrote works for 32 species of trees in Kensington Gardens. These individual works formed part of a larger ecosystem of musical interactions, reflecting the harmonious and symbiotic coexistence of the urban trees.


Project Aims

Treephonia aims to participate and engage with nature and inspire people to forge healthier and more sustainable relationships with their environment.

We wish to investigate deeply what trees mean to humans, to share these experiences and relationships through music, and to engage with art and its role in shaping our sustained existence for the future.


Project Brief

Trees are among the largest and oldest living organisms on Earth, revealing multitudes about the world and our place within it.

Observing from various perspectives and dimensions, we witness complexities, patterns, order, chaos, symbiosis, competition, reproduction, decay, endurance, and impermanence…

We see the past, present, and future manifested all at once in their roots, branches, layered trunks, and budding leaves and flowers.

Since antiquity, arboreal imagery has permeated art, literature, mythology, genealogy, religion, and science.

Trees are truly amazing beings, sustaining and nourishing all life around them.

In Treephonia 2020, composers explored the particular characteristics of various tree species. The specific trees of Kensington Gardens gave rise to unique soundworlds, textures, and forms, and invited composers to consider musical material in diverse ways.

For Treephonia: Live 2022, we wish to dig deeper and a pursue a greater discovery of the majesty of trees!

We are looking for composers with a passion for exploring the relationship between music, nature, and ecology. The theme of trees encompasses a multitude of disciplines and thought. As long as your work engages with trees or is inspired by an aspect of trees, we would love to hear from you.

We welcome all styles and genres, though pieces which take advantage of an outdoor/semi-outdoor performance environment will be particularly welcome.

We actively encourage applications from diverse, underrepresented, and/or marginalised backgrounds.

Previous Treephonia composers are eligible and welcome to apply.

ins nirgendwie - digitale utopien






Call for Exhibition | Accepted: AR-Art, Conceptual Art, Digital Graphic, Digital Painting, Installation, Photography, Performance, (Post-) Internet Art, Sculpture/Plastic Arts, Video, VR-Art

„The gestalt of all artistic utopia today is: to make things of which we do not know what they are.“ Theodor W. Adorno, Vers uns musique informelle

„The network is our contemporary intuition of infinity.“ Alan Liu

Within the modern idea of progress, fuelled by technology, there always shimmers the hope of a better tomorrow, whenever and however that may be achieved. The contemporary expression of this vision is the Californian utopia, manifested in the transhumanist Singularity movement, which speculates on a technical superintelligence that will help solve all of humanity's problems - both hope and horror.

But it is striking that in many places today utopian thinking has been replaced by hard realism. The current fear of the dystopia threatened by climatic, technological and hygienic changes forces us to take a sober look at the few options that seem to remain to prevent brutal social changes.

Today, technical solutions give many people hope that global climatic and pandemic events can be brought under control: Where would we be if we could not use genetic engineering to develop vaccines and medicines? And aren't wind turbines, smart electricity technologies, hydrogen and e-drives - enabled, controlled, accelerated by IT technologies - also technical answers to the problems of man-made climate change?

For many people, however, it is disturbing that the technology utopians of the 21st century like Gates, Bezos, Zuckerberg and others have become unimaginably rich and thus unimaginably powerful with their IT companies. And even more disturbing is the fact that IT technologies are capable of massively restricting our individual freedom through total control, see the Social Credit System in China. Here too: Digitalization offers hope and terror at the same time.

So if we look at the current scenario of digital utopia in our culture, we see that it is complicated. That is precisely what interests us. For the unmanageable, the obscured and the only in the making offers art a fantastic playground. Moreover, art itself contains a utopian moment, it refers through the now of its material to the idea of the possible, the yet to come, reflected in the imagination of the viewer. Perhaps this is why many digital artists deal with utopian perspectives. So how does digital art approach the theme of "utopia"? What view do the artists have of the future? What dangers do they warn about? What utopian dreams do they give space to - virtually or in real life?

>>> You are a digital artist? Then take part with your work in the big group exhibition at the Weltkunstzimmer, Düsseldorf, Germany, 7 - 23 October 2022

Deadline for this call: 15 June 2022
