 Eklekto Geneva
Summary:Call for Projects
Deadline: 01 May 2017
Date Posted: 12 April 2017
Details: Eklekto Geneva percussion center invites composers and sound artists to submit a proposal for a new work for percussion trio. The theme of the call is:


In today’s society, the concept of gathering is increasingly discussed. The social networks bring the idea of group memberships, but also that of some kind of isolation. Today’s news makes people gather and encourages solidarity and movements of opposition. But at the same time, it creates divisions and disparities. Globalization allows the creation of groups which function beyond political and geographical boundaries; however, the concepts of nationalism and populism are constantly bringing new followers. How do we gather today? How do we consider ourselves as individuals towards groups?

Eklekto would like to discuss the notions of gathering and solitude through musical proposals that reflect this theme, handle it either concrete or more abstract.

The Call for Projects is open to composers and sound artists born after 01.03.1982, coming from Switzerland and the rest of the world.

A jury of professionals will judge the proposals and choose three projects to be realized by Eklekto at l’Abri- Espace culturel pour jeunes talents, in Geneva, on November 4th 2017.

Deadline for submitting : May 1st 2017
