Paid commissions – seeking composers to write for Glisk quartet, inspired by the Stories of People and Trees story collection
Stories of People and Trees is commissioning 6 new works – 5 for string quartet and 1 for solo cello – inspired by elements of the stories collected in this project; and the trees and people within them. In addition to being premiered in summer 2023 at the Hidden Gardens, Glasgow, the new music will be recorded and made available online, with QR codes sited at featured trees to allow visitors to listen to the music in the company of the trees themselves.
This opportunity would suit composers who are inspired by the natural world, by the stories that individuals have to tell, and those who are interested in eco social arts practice, connection to nature and working at the intersection of arts and ecology.
These are paid commissions. To apply for this opportunity, composers must live in Scotland or have a close connection to Scotland eg through previous work or collaborations. For full details and to find out how to apply, please visit the Music and Commissions page at www.storiesofpeopleandtrees.com
