OPEN UNTIL FEBRUARY 28, 2019
The Millennium Composers Initiative is excited to announce our 2019 Call for Composers!! We will only be accepting applications from composers age 30 or less. While our call is open to everyone in this age demographic, we are especially interested in the following criteria:
-Composers who identify as female, POC, non-binary, LGBTQIA+
-Composers involved with commercial work and other non-classical fields (ex: film/TV scoring, video game scoring, songwriting, etc.)
-Composers with a background or interest in the fields of conducting and/or music education
Please fill out the information on the form below. You will need to prepare a compositional portfolio with your submission - this should be submitted as a cloud-storage link (such as Dropbox or Google Drive) and should include the following:
-Your Professional Photo or a similar Headshot (no more than 10MB maximum)
-Your Resume or CV. If you choose to upload your Resume, please keep it to no more than two pages maximum.
-Up to 5 Works. For acoustic and electroacoustic pieces, as well as any live recorded music for commercial work (such as film score cues), please submit PDF scores and mp3/WAV audio files. Live recordings are preferred, but we will also accept MIDI realizations if necessary, especially if used for hybrid-orchestrated film cues. For electronic music submissions, please submit mp3/WAV audio files along with any other information you feel is necessary for us to know about your piece. If there is a visual component to your portfolio that you would like for us to consider (such as a demo reel or visual multimedia aspect to your composition), you may also include YouTube/Vimeo links or MP4 files in your portfolio.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Thanks so much and we look forward to hearing from you soon!
