CALL FOR SCORES
The Malaysian Composers Collective invites submissions of an original work for:
15 Minutes of Fame
15 one-minute piano works + 15 one-minute short films:
What: We are inviting composers from Malaysia and ACL to compose a one-minute piano work for the project. The selected pieces will be performed by a Malaysian pianist and will go on to inspire Malaysian film artists to create a one-minute short film to the music soundtrack.
The 15 completed films will be broadcast in the fourth quarter of 2014 on various online platforms, and will be made available for further screenings at events and festivals.
The objective of the films is to raise awareness of the dangers of climate change, especially in light of the current water crisis and environmental disaster known as the haze, both of which are related to the man-made forest fires that Malaysia will likely face again this year. There can be no life without water.
Theme: Water + Fire
The composer is free to choose any aspect of the theme and/or the elements, and interpret it in any manner seen fit, literally or metaphorically, or based on any related inspiration.
New work for solo piano, duration exactly 1 minute (60 seconds). Playing inside the piano is permitted, but with no preparation of the piano.
Use of tape playback is permitted, but composer must furnish the finished audio file in digital (wav) form when your piece is selected.
Composers may send as many entries as they please, but only one will be selected. Multiple pieces must be stand alone and not dependent on the other.
Submission must include:
1) score in pdf format with programme notes
2) simple rough audio recording of the work(s) (can be made using handphone or simple audio recorders and submitted in compressed mp3, wma or similar digital format no more than 1.5 Mb in size)
3) photo and bio of composer
