CALL FOR PROPOSALS TO WORK IN RESIDENCY WITH THE LOGOS ROBOT ORCHESTRA

In the past the Logos Foundation in Ghent, Flanders, has organised monthly concerts devoted to new compositions written for their musical robots. The Logos Foundation is an advanced production centre for new experimental music and audio arts and we wish to give composers the opportunity to develop new works for the robot orchestra inluding the human interfaces available at Logos.

Composers ought to have experience in the use of professional sequencing software or programming, if interactive projects are under consideration. We have a preference for composers using the Windows platform, as this is the platform in use at Logos. Proposals involving a dance soloist can eventually be considered. In this case, include a desciption of the choreography. We have a cast of experienced Namuda dancers available. Proposals involving interactivity with instrumental musicians are acceptable as well.

Composers from all over the world are invited to send proposals.

Terms and conditions:

  • Composers must familiarize themselves with the user manual for our orchestra.
  • A jury at Logos will evaluate the proposals. Criteria are related to technical feasability, stylistic innovation and originality.
  • Logos does not provide funding for the cost of travelling or food. However we can provide basic accommodation and we will support your applications for outside funding with letters of invitation.
  • Professional recording equipment is available so that composers can record, document and distribute their work.
