STREET MUSIC for Accordion
A Project of the Accordion Studio by Krassimir Sterev
Deadline for submissions: 8 June 2018
The “STREET MUSIC” project will bring a great variety of contemporary music and music performances into the urban space of the city of Darmstadt during the 2018 Summer Course.
Composers are invited to submit scores for the project. The short pieces – of a duration of up to 8 minutes – should be written for solo accordion, two accordionists or accordion performer (with the accordion being an integral part of the music/performance/interaction). The pieces should be without amplification or electronics.
The accordion participants will rehearse the selected pieces during the first week of the Darmstadt Summer Course (preferably together with the composers – if they are in Darmstadt). The pieces will be performed in the streets or other open city spaces of Darmstadt on 26 July 2018.
Please send the following documents by 8 June 2018 to
- score as PDF for (duration up to 8 minutes) for solo accordion, two accordionists or accordion performer (with the accordion being an integral part of the music/performance/interaction)
- CV (short version)
- if available: recording of the piece (as a link, no download of files is possible!)
From this call for scores, Krassimir Sterev will select a number of pieces which will then be rehearsed in Darmstadt by the accordion participants and which will be prepared for a public performance in the streets.
This call for scores is open to everyone. But composers who are enrolled for the Darmstadt Summer Course or who will be present in Darmstadt for other reasons, are especially encouraged to apply since it would give us the opportunity to rehearse together!
