This is a ground-breaking residency in which student composers from the Department of Music apply for the opportunity to have their musical responses to the Picture Gallery and some of its wonderful paintings performed by an invited ensemble each year.
This residency is a professional development programme for music creators of the Department of Music to receive specialist, industry-standard workshop sessions and tutorials, working collaboratively with invited artists, ensembles and tutors to create new works that are premiered as part of the International Concert Series.
These new compositions are the result of a special collaboration between the College’s Art Curator Dr Laura MacCulloch and Nathan James Dearden, a College Composer, Conductor of the New Music Collective and Performance Manager at the Department of Music.
Applications are now closed for 2020. Applications open during the summer of each academic year.
