This call out is for acoustic music to be performed at the Solstice Shorts Festival in Greenwich, London, on 21st December 2016. You will need to be available to perform!!
Deadline for submission 23:59, 31 August 2016
The theme is Shortest Day.
Please stick to it, but do not use this as your title (it makes it very difficult to shortlist!)
This is the second part of an earlier call out, and this part is to RESPOND to short stories and poems for which you will be sent a link – (the reason the link is not here is to respect the copyright of the writers, only people actively seeking to respond to the call out will have access to it.) Contact us to ask for the link.
How you choose to interpret shortest day in relation to the writing is entirely up to you, but it might be that you set (some of) the words to original music, or you might propose a traditional piece that would sit well with a story, or compose music that fits with the mood… please remember you need to be able to perform it!
Successful pieces will be performed at the 3rd Solstice Shorts Festival on 21st December 2016 in Greenwich, London. Performers are paid. We video/ record so that there is a permanent record available. Please tell us which piece of writing inspired you, so that we can curate the music and story/poem alongside, or even together.
send us: mp3, wmv, mp4, avi; plus score if you want to as pdf; words if relevant as pdf, rtf, txt, doc, docx.
When you are ready, submit here.
