International Space Time Concerto Competition
The International Space Time Concerto Competition is an innovative new venture celebrating musical virtuosity, collaboration and cutting edge creativity. Project organisers are now offering musicians free entry into the competition in order to make the competition more accessible to entrants nationwide.
“Most concerto competitions on this scale require an entrance fee, however Space Time isn’t any ordinary competition. The no charge policy aims to promote participation and accessibility, making it attractive to the many diverse musical cultures in Australia,” says Professor Richard Vella, Chair and Professor of Music at the University of Newcastle.
The International Space Time Concerto Competition is a new competition with a total prize pool of $50,000. The competition offers the unique opportunity for 6 finalists to perform with an accompanying orchestra at the Newcastle Conservatorium of Music Concert Hall in late 2012. Another two finalists will have the opportunity of being accompanied by an international internet-linked ensemble spanning five countries.
The competition borrows from our rich musical history, embraces the future and promotes the present. Entries are welcome by any undergraduate, postgraduate or international student, or alumni of any Australian tertiary institution, who shares a keen interest in excellent musicianship and cutting edge creativity. To enter the historical category, submissions must be made in the form of a 5-minute audition video, which should demonstrate ones ability to perform. Entries for the innovation category can be in the form of a show reel or example of previous works, but must showcase what one aims to do if selected.
The competition seeks musicians from all genres including but not limited to virtuoso classical instrumentalists, orchestral players, jazz performers, contemporary bands, electronic, experimental and new media artists. It hopes to encourage unique creative collaborations with composers, performers, producers and AV/mixing engineers, all working together to produce innovative new works.
The brainchild of the University of Newcastle, the initiative is a creative collaboration with, the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music in Singapore, Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing, Waikato University in New Zealand and Ars Electronica in Austria.
Entries for The International Space Time Concerto Competition will be accepted until midnight on July 1 through www.spacetimeconcerto.com
