Overview

This three-week program brings together emerging artists from around the world to work and study with Co-Artistic Directors Vijay Iyer and Tyshawn Sorey, as well as internationally acclaimed guest mentors.

This program is one of the most intensive that Banff Centre offers, and continues our 40-year history of incredible jazz exploration.

The Banff International Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music is designed to help emerging musicians become performers/composers of consequence in the world, with an emphasis on community and collaboration.

There is a major recording component to the residency and two weeks of sessions spent in our world-class studio with renowned faculty engineers and producers.  

Participants will receive a personal studio space to work from, available 24 hours a day. Production spaces are shared among all participants in the residency. Scholarship is available.

Who should apply?

Open to applicants worldwide, this residency is a call for artists and composers who have an established practice. Artists should have produced an independent body of work and received recognition through public presentation in performance or recordings as well as from their peers.

EQ: Evolution of the String Quartet | Summer Music 2019

Share

Category:

Country:

City:

Overview

Led by violinist Aisslinn Nosky and featuring four of the most exciting string quartets to be found anywhere — JACK, Eybler, Parker, and Bozzini quartets — along with an extraordinary group of soloists, composers, and scholars, Evolution of the String Quartet (EQ) explores the string quartet lineage from Haydn to music made in Banff by and for the faculty and participants of EQ.

Participants will explore the early string quartet, with sessions on intonation, harmony, and structure, as well as in-depth discussions of style and rhetoric. Quartets from the traditional canon will be studied and performed alongside 2018 Banff-commissioned works by Zosha Di Castri, Tyshawn Sorey, and others. Participant composers' works will be performed by participant string quartets, and faculty quartets will give world premieres. Participants and audiences alike will explore the lineage of the string quartet, both as a historical genre and as a new and invigorated practice in the early 21st century. 

What does the program offer?

Participants attending EQ will present public and in-house performances. The residency will produce nearly a concert per day for three weeks — from publicized, ticketed events to participant-driven “throw downs” and octet, as well as other chamber music reading sessions with participants and faculty side by side.

Participants will also convene in a daily meeting for high-level presentations by select faculty about musical aesthetics, interpretative issues, ensemble management, and equity in the arts field. Performance and composition faculty will offer coaching and private lessons.

Composers will receive instruction and mentorship from EQ's internationally distinguished composition faculty, and will have their pieces performed by participants.

Who should apply?

Established string quartets, composers, and scholars are encouraged to apply. The successful applicants will be post-secondary students or emerging artists, already at an advanced level of accomplishment and with a well-documented record of musical exploration.  Artists from historically underrepresented groups are especially welcomed. 

Application Deadline: January 16, 2019

Overview

Featuring a faculty of performers drawn from the ranks of the International Contemporary Ensemble, along with an extraordinary group of composers, improvisers, and conversation partners, Ensemble Evolution explores the evolving range and depth of ensemble playing in the early 21st century. 

Through workshops, performances, collaboration with faculty on newly commissioned works, and group conversation, participants will engage in a holistic approach to making music, building community, and imagining pathways forward for the future of the ensemble. The composition faculty includes internationally renowned composers George Lewis, Liza Lim, Alvin Lucier, Yvette Janine Jackson and Miya Masaoka, and the improvisation faculty includes luminaries Matana Roberts, Peter Evans, Mazz Swift, Levy Lorenzo, Wifrideo Terrazas and Cory Smythe. Ensemble Evolution also welcomes Rania El Mugammar as a conversation partner who will guide discussions and workshops around equity and social responsibility in the music field.

As a part of Ensemble Evolution’s ongoing commitment to the creation of new repertory for a new generation, 2019 Banff Centre-commissioned works by Alvin Lucier, Miya Masaoka and Yvette Janine Jackson will premiere this summer in Banff. 

Over the course of the program, participants will take increasing responsibility for programming, rehearsing, and producing the concerts, resulting in a participant-driven day of performances at the culmination of the program. Ensemble Evolution prepares the 21st century musician by promoting artistic excellence, seeding collaboration, fostering social consciousness and exploring new modes of community-building through music.

DRAWING RESEARCH RESIDENCY

Drawing Research Residency

Presented in partnership between L’AiR ARTS at FIAP PARIS and DRAWinternational, Caylus, France

The invisible realm of possibility 

Two-part residency program:
Part I - Creative Practice in a medieval town of Caylus
Part II - Contextual Research and Exhibition in Paris
Application deadline: January 4, 2019

The project will focus upon notions of intention and the physical act of drawing as it arrives as a vectorial force on a material surface. One could say, an infrastructure from where other possibilities collide, from common habitual behaviours toward the realm of the unknown. 

A conscious reflective engagement with the world felt through our our skin, flesh and bones is a spatial process of perception directed upon an environment of mass, volume and depth. A world encountered by the whole human interactive corporeal sensorium through which we become inexorably a part. As such, there can be no gap between biology and society as we move in and around the world, finding out that we are made of the same fundamental stuff as everything else. From this perspective our bodies are situated ecologically, in a role which is not simply ‘subjective’ but social and of nature itself. It is a body for others as it exists in its tension between agencies of power and systems of resistance, what is and what is in the becoming. 

To trust oneself and to be honest in a creative act, which takes cognisance of the world around can only help foster an initial space of meaningful conscious engagement. A continued focus and sense of purpose, with a loss of self, can only lead to a cyclical state of pre-reflective awareness. It is the doors of realisation and insight that resides in the depths of a primordial, intercorporeal, ‘chiasmic’ intertwining of truths, a radical space to be. 

As David Abram has stated:

. .. meaning sprouts in the very depths of the sensory world, in the heat of meeting, encounter, participation. (Abram, 1997,p75)

© Edited from ‘Choreography of Drawing: The consciousness of the body in the space of a drawing’ John McNorton, PhD Royal College of Art, 2003.

CPW’s photography-based Artist-In-Residence Program was created to expand the dialogue around diversity, race, identity and social justice, and to provide concrete opportunities for US-based artists, scholars and curators of color, who have often been under-represented in general programs. Artists-in-Residence (AIRs) are given access to facilities and financial, critical, and technical support. The drive for this program is to free the artist from the busy routines and demands of everyday life – and to provide a sanctuary for creativity.

WOODSTOCK AIR encourages participants to pursue creative risk-taking in an environment rich in cultural resources. Working without distraction or interruption, participants focus intensely on their own work, continue works in progress, set goals for the future, and break new ground. Each year CPW offers seven studio residencies and one residency for a critic/scholar/curator. WOODSTOCK AI­R marks the first residency experience of over 65 percent of its participants. All proposals are welcomed.

WOODSTOCK AIR was listed among the top 20 residency programs in the U.S. by Artinfo and one of the top residencies for photographers in the world by Format Magazine.

Residencies include:

-four to six week creative work time without interruptions

-accommodations with large studio at the Artist House located within walking distance from CPW and the center of Woodstock’s business district

-24/7 access to CPW’s workspace facilities, including darkroom, digital lab (large format printers, flatbed and dedicated film scanners), and library

-critical and technical support

-honorarium
