emp’óra is issuing a call for projects, period 2011-2012. It is aimed at composers and soloists or ensembles (instrumental and/or vocal) involved mainly in contemporary music.

In the text below, the performing part of the project is called ensemble (from two performers), but may be a soloist, and may incorporate electroacoustics. The pieces may also be of improvisational character.

Directions for entries of projects to temp’óra (must be followed to be considered) :

The project must consist of an exchange between, at least, three different countries. From these countries each ensemble will commission a piece from a composer of its own country.

The exchange is in form of a collaboration between these countries, so that each ensemble will play a programme including the new commission in the two or more other countries of the collaboration. The programme may be performed in one concert or consist of a tour. This part of the project takes place between 1st of September 2011 and 31st of December 2012.

temp’óra will pay a commission fee of €1000 minimum for each granted commission. temp’óra will not pay or have any expenses connected with the traveling, the accommodation or the payment for concert venues.

Special consideration will be given to projects which develop in their programmes the artistic and conceptual idea of exchange between countries in the world.

Application deadline: 30th of September 2010
