Getting Your Work Performed Live – The DIY Option

Presenting Your Work

In an ideal world, festivals and ensembles would be knocking on your door offering you performance and commission opportunities. However, for an emerging composer things might be a little slow at first so you might consider a more proactive route to getting your work played live: creating your own performance opportunities.

To create your own performance platform, you effectively take on the role of producer, bringing together all people and elements involved in an event and being in charge of the overall budget. Producing a project can be very time and energy consuming – all roads lead to you, so if there’s a problem people will come to you first – but it can also give you a fantastic and very useful insight into how different aspects of the music industry hang together.
