ULYSSES JOURNEYS FOR COMPOSERS: Unconducted Chamber Music Composition – IRCAM

06/2023 Ircam – FR

ULYSSES Journeys offer young composers and performers the opportunity to take part in courses,  workshops and residencies, but also to have concrete working experiences, through commissions and concerts.

At Manifeste-2023, the Ensemble Intercontemporain is offering a workshop for 8 young composers, including two composers endorsed by the ULYSSES network, Rick van Veldhuizen and Carolina Cerezo Dávila, who attend the workshop  as part of the ULYSSES journey program. In Unconducted Chamber Music Composition Workshop, composers work closely with the musicians and with composer Francesco Filidei to finalise their piece. The 8 selected composers are requested to write for a specific instrument group, paying a special attention to composition of the form in time and memory.

The selected composers have an hour-long online meeting with Francesco Filidei in January 2023 to present their composition project (a sketch is appreciated). In June 2023, the workshop begins with one-on-one meetings with Francesco Filidei. Following this, each piece has 2 half-day rehearsals and a dress rehearsal before the 8 pieces are presented to the public during a concert held in the ManiFeste festival. Read more here.
