2018 is the year for change!
Not from big institutions, worldly leaders or powerful foundations. No. From the people themselves. Bottom-up. Peer to peer. As Oprah Winfrey just stated in the light of the #metoo movement: “A new day is on the horizon!”

This is why I want to present the ‘No Medici’-project. For too long, (ambiguous) foundations have dictated the new music scene. While some of them have good intentions, others turned out to only support a certain ‘category’ of the new music field: mostly men, mostly white.

While visiting many, highly qualified composition departments all over the world, it struck me that the presence of specialized and enthusiastic performers is often lacking. Composing becomes a more abstract phenomenon and often very talented composers miss out on opportunities, because they don’t have regular collaborators by their side. Well-established ensembles, companies or orchestras commission people based on references and/or portfolio, but in order to assemble such a portfolio, opportunities need to come up first.

This project is: no money involved, no foundation involved, no agenda involved, no Medici’s involved. Just musicians going back to the basics of our profession: creating art together.

There will be 5 public workshops and a final concert in Open Space.

Featuring composers are: Anna Walton, Eveline Vervliet, Tatiana Gerasimenok, Jacques Zafra and Johnathon Win.

Panel: Viola Yip, Celeste Oram, Nigel McBride, Brian Griffeath-Loeb, Marcelo Lazcano and Jason Eckardt
