Workshop in SMC, 13thÂ November 2018
Concerts 13thÂ and 14thÂ November 2018
From the initial submissions up to five works will be chosen for a workshop with Juice, 13thÂ November in Glasgow. One of the five works will be chosen to feature in The Night Withâ€¦ concerts on 13thÂ and 14thNovember 2018.Â The programme will include music by Claire McCue and Mica Levi.
It is intended that the workshop will be documented through recording and photography/film. This is so that the composers involved will have a read-through recording and/or video of their work for their own non-commercial use (e.g. Soundcloud).
The workshop is open to the public and free to attend.
The Night WithÂ is a new concert series set up by composer Matthew Whiteside (www.matthewwhiteside.co.uk)Â Â to perform interesting music in a relaxed environment. The intention is to develop it into a monthly concert series running for six months of the year to include new commissions performed by the highest quality players both Scottish and international and promoting music from all eras but with a bias toward contemporary.
JuiceÂ are at the forefront of the UKâ€™s experimental/classical scene, performing new vocal music which draws on classical, world music, jazz, folk, pop, improvisation and theatre. They have featured on BBC Radio 4â€™sÂ Womanâ€™s Hour, BBC Radio 3 and Classic FM. They have performed at Londonâ€™s Wigmore Hall and the South Bank, Kingâ€™s Place and the Roundhouse. In 2011, they made their US debut with concerts in New York and at the famed SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas. In 2007, they were the first UK prize winners in the history of the internationally-renowned Tampere Vocal Festival. International performances include concerts in Denmark, Germany, France, Italy, Finland and the U.S.
