Following the success of the previous Melbourne Jazz Fringe Commissions, which resulted in the creation of extraordinary new works by Gian Slater, Fran Swinn, Jex Saarelaht, Colin Hopkins, Erik Griswold, and Ren Walters, the Melbourne Jazz Fringe Festival is now calling for submissions for the 2012 Melbourne Jazz Fringe Festival Commission.
The Commission provides $1500 to a composer to write an extended work for an ensemble (greater than 5 piece) of his or her choice and also provides rehearsal and performance fees for ensemble players. The commissioned work will be presented by the 2012 Melbourne Jazz Fringe Board. The performance date is currently scheduled for Sunday May 13th 5pm at Northcote Town Hall.
Interested parties are asked to provide a description of their proposal outlining the idea behind the composition and how the idea will be realized on one A4 page (font size 12 pt minimum) and a brief biography.
The Fringe is asking:
What is fringe?
Do you have a great idea?
What is it?
How are you going to do it?
What’s your thing?
