Voix Nouvelles Academy 2022

The Voix Nouvelles Academy is open to composers and performers wishing to hone their skills in the interpretation of the contemporary repertory and presents a rare opportunity to progress under the guidance of world-famous composers and performers. For composers, it recreates the complete process of creation of a new work, in professional conditions: commission, composition, rehearsals, concert, under the supervision of internationally renowned tutors belonging to different aesthetics. It calls on the leading ensembles to rehearse and perform the works and to advise and interact with the composers, taking an active part in the elaboration of the work. The academy also gives the opportunity of composing and getting to a better knowledge of specific instruments. In its duration and its exceptional working conditions, the academy constitutes a unique forum for exchanges between composers, performers and thinkers.

Composer Jinwook Jung will take part in the Voix Nouvelles Academy 2022 as part of his ULYSSES Journey.
