Opportunity: Call for composers

Paid commissions – composers to write for Stories of People and Trees

Stories of People and Trees is commissioning six new works – for for string quartet and one 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 by Glisk quartet 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.

Deadline for applications: 30 December 2022

Commissions confirmed: Early January 2023
