  • PRSF App Hints from Vanessa Reed » aaronhollowaynahum.com
    year The first deadline for 2012 is 6th February The individual applications are new this year and will place a special emphasis on the quality of music and the clips submitted As background the average grant last year was 3 200 and the PRSF are expecting to support approximately 50 of 800 estimated applications Vanessa began by pointing out that it s important to remember the mission of the PRS for Music when applying for their funding In summary the PRSF exists to stimulate and support the creation and performance of new music throughout the UK and to ensure that this music is enjoyed by a wide audience That means they don t fund things like purchasing equipment funding recordings or providing travel costs to performances They do however offer support up to 500 through the Bliss Trust Composer Bursaries upcoming deadlines March 26th and August 28th One really important kernel of information that Vanessa shared was that in general the PRS are becoming more reticent to fund commissions that will result in only a single performance Notice again that bit about ensuring that new music finds a wide audience You are more likely to be funded if you team up with another organisation in a co commission or if you can show that the piece you re applying to fund will have a performance life beyond the premiere Finally Vanessa shared Five Tips for Enlightened Fundraising I won t flesh them out here but I ll list the headings and leave them to you for your thoughts 1 Funding can mean more than money 2 Know what happens behind the scenes 3 Break out of your niche 4 Get informed 5 Be resilient know when to say no or why No Comments Blog Writing Tagged Barbican BCMG Counting In

  • Review: Jonathan Harvey Total Immersion Concert » aaronhollowaynahum.com
    Li Po with soprano Marta Fontanals Simmons and Calling Across Time The performances were first rate as Baker drew out disciplined nuanced and engaged performances from the students I was particularly impressed with the dynamic range the players achieved and the true pianissimos in Tranquil Abiding gave the work a constant sense of motion and intense honesty Soprano Marta Fontanals Simon was excellent throughout the Songs of Li Po but the entire thing might just have done with a bit of sound reinforcement as the busy string parts are often creating dense and active textures making it difficult to hear the words though I m sure many would say I should have simply coughed up the 3 50 for a programme Finally we heard Calling Across Time The piece has an elaborate set up with two wind quintets sat on either side of the stage a percussionist and trumpet player behind the audience and a live synthesiser As I m writing up my Doctorate at the moment I ve been particularly engaged in Denis Smalley s concept of source bonding which more or less had to do with our tendency to assign a source to the things we hear Source bonding largely makes these connections based on the timbre of that sound So if I hear a sound coming out of a speaker that sounds like a trumpet whether it is actually a trumpet a recording of a trumpet or some other sound that just sounds like a trumpet to me then that sound is source bonded to a trumpet and for all intents and purposes is a trumpet This performance threw up some interesting questions about this idea in electro acoustic music where live musicians are present As the sounds started to come out of the speakers the entire audience started shifting about in their seats trying to locate the musician creating the music rather ironically the synth player on the stage in front of them I m sure Elias Canetti would have some other explanations for why a crowd of people don t like unidentified sounds coming from behind them but in this instance it seemed to me that audiences have a genuine desire to know exactly what they are experiencing So in a concert where virtually every sound had been created live and in a concert venue where an even greater percentage of the music heard is always created live the audience had a genuine interest in knowing who or what was making that sound There was also every good reason with other live players behind us to imagine that there were some currently unseen players creating these sounds I do wonder if all of this actually ends up overtaking the piece as the process and processing is so obvious and forward in the texture that it quickly becomes the only thing you re paying attention to One becomes acutely aware that the sound coming out of the speaker to their left is actually quite different to
