Call for Applications - Creative Music Production Residencies

January 17, 2018

The Centre d’Expérimentation Musicale invites creators to apply for a creative music production residency. Along with musicians which are CEM members, the guest artists will be asked to perform one or many works in front of an audience. Those works will be shot with multiple cameras and multitrack recorded. This broadcast-quality recording will be available on the Web.

In 2018, three residencies of two or three weeks will be granted. One of those residencies is intended for cultural diversity (immigrants or persons of immigrant background who were born in Canada).

Offered Conditions
- $1000 per week of residency for artist fee and copyrights;
- Accommodation for the whole residency period;
- A daily allowance of $30/day (residents have access to a kitchen);
- Travel expenses (by plane if more than 1000 km from the CEM);
- A complete access to the Centre's facilities and equipment.

The CEM also has a considerable budget for hiring musicians. This way, residents will be able to rehearse with them on a regular basis (for example, in two weeks, it is reasonable to hold eight half a day rehearsals with four musicians). During the residencies, creators will be supported by a producer with whom they will be able to discuss about their work. The producer will be in charge of the music production while acting as a bridge between the residents and the musicians.

Deadline : Febuary 11th 2018
