MATA Festival - NYC - 2009 - Call for Score

MATA (Music at the Anthology) is currently accepting scores for consideration for commissions and performances for the 2009 MATA Festival in New York City, in the spring of 2009. Although commissions are only awarded to composers under 40 at the time of submission, composers of all ages who are at the early stages of their careers will be considered for programming on the festival. Commission amounts range from $1500 to $5000, depending on the parameters of the work. Composers are expected to attend the premiere of their work. Please include a sentence in your cover letter specifying if you would like your works to be considered generally for the festival in the event that you are not chosen for a commission. MATA will consider works of any instrumentation and duration; please send whatever you consider to be your best work. In addition to our traditional festival programming, MATA encourages submissions in the following sub-categories: 1) Site-Specific Works; 2) Electro-Acoustic / Computer Works; 3) Chamber Music for Wind Instruments.

Deadline: February 15. Materials for submission must include: 2 recordings of samples of recent work. A maximum of two works may be submitted (MIDI tapes will not be accepted), scores to accompany the above recordings (unless scores are not pertinent), biography or résumé, list of works, contact information, SASE if you wish to have your materials returned. If your music has been programmed by MATA, or you have received a commission, you must wait three years before re-applying. Only one commission will be awarded to any one composer in his or her lifetime. Send works to the surface address below. More information available on the web or by email.
