Embedded: BBC Radio 3
The residency for Contemporary Composer in 3 will begin in June 2016 with a 10 day opportunity for the selected composer to get to know BBC Radio 3, followed by the core residency period of September – December 2016.
During this 70 day period, the composer will have the opportunity to create regular short form works for frequent broadcast as part of the celebrations of the 70th Anniversary of the Third Programme. The selected artist will work closely with Radio 3’s programme makers in composing pieces which introduce the station’s audience to a diverse range of new music.
