Call for Applications for the 6th International Composition Seminar

»Past, present and future are, as you know, bound to the procedure of
successiveness merely by their appearance as cosmic time. In our cognitive
reality, however, this succession does not exist, possessing a truer reality
than the well-acquainted clock, which basically indicates nothing else
then the fact that there is no presence in a strict sense. Time bends itself
into a spherical shape. From within this notion, […] I developed my […]
pluralistic compositional technique, which takes the multiple layers of our
reality into account.«

(Bernd Alois Zimmermann, 1918-1970)

Music and Time is the theme of IEMA’s next International Composition Seminar,
which – directed by the Ensemble Modern and the composer and conductor Johannes Kalitzke

– will then be taking place for the sixth time in 2013.
In Europe, the seminar is still unique in its bipartite structure:

In a first »try-out« phase, the compositional ideas, developed for the seminar, sound concepts
and technical approaches will receive two days of rehearsal and discussion together with
Ensemble Modern and one day together with both Ensemble Modern and
hr-Sinfonieorchester. Intensive work sessions will offer the explicit opportunity, to rehearse
only parts of the newly developed or still nascent compositional ideas or sound visions.

In the second phase, ideas and insights gained during the first phase are incorporated in the
new pieces; the works are completed. After a rehearsal phase that also leaves room for
exchange and discussions, the new works see their premiere.

The International Composition Seminar 2013 and its two final concerts are integrated into the
second edition of the festival cresc… Biennale für Moderne Musik which takes place between
21st and 24th November 2013 in Frankfurt and Darmstadt.
Through the cooperation with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, hr-Sinfonieorchester,
the International Composition Seminar will again be giving the opportunity to work together
with a large orchestra.
The seminar will be offering 4 assignments of works for ensemble and 2 assignments of works
for orchestra and ensemble.

The guiding theme is connected to the festival theme of cresc… 2013. Under the topic »Music
and Time«, the work and mindscape of composer Bernd Alois Zimmermann are brought into
focus and contrasted with current approaches to the topic.

The festival is a joint undertaking of the partners Ensemble Modern, Hessischer Rundfunk, Alte
Oper, Internationales Musikinstitut Darmstadt, Institute of Contemporary Music at the
Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts and Staatstheater Darmstadt.

Composers interested in this project are invited to participate.

Project periods:

15th – 17th February 2013
17th – 25th November 2013

(compulsory attendance without exception)

1st Phase: 15th – 17th February 2013 in Frankfurt
In this first of two phases, the compositions and ideas developed during the seminar will
receive two days of rehearsal and discussion together with Ensemble Modern and one
day together with both Ensemble Modern and hr-Sinfonieorchester. Intensive work
sessions will offer the explicit opportunity, to rehearse only parts of the newly developed
or still nascent compositional ideas or sound visions.

2nd Phase: 17 th – 24 th November 2013 in Frankfurt and Darmstadt
Ideas and insights gained during the first phase can be included into the pieces and the
material is completed before for the second phase (until 1st October 2013). This rehearsal
phase that also leaves room for exchange and discussions, will result in concerts during
the festival cresc... (21 th -24th November 2013).

Rhein Main«, to be recorded by hr2-kultur.
