Summary:International Composition Competition Extended Deadline
Deadline: 31 August 2018
Date Posted: 08 August 2018
Details: Launched in collaboration with Award Winning performer and composer Sergio Sorrentino, in connection with the production of the new album Contemporary Music for Electric Guitar and linked with the upcoming book written by S. Sorrentino, this competition has been developed to stimulate and promote the creation of new contemporary and experimental works for electric guitar as well as discover emerging composers and more established ones.

RMN Classical will produce an album that will focus on the contemporary repertoire for electric guitar and will see Award Winning guitarist Sergio Sorrentino at the instrument. This will be RMN Classical second release devoted to the repertoire for solo instrument. The music album will be scheduled to be released autumn/winter 2018

In connection with the project is the upcoming book written by S. Sorrentino. With this book the author aims to promote such repertoire on a large-scale and includes exclusive interviews with iconic composers and hands-on views on their way of composing music for electric guitar. Among the many composers featured in the book we can find Stravinsky, Stockhausen, Steve Reich, Gavin Bryars, Morton Feldman and Bryce Dessner to name just a few.

The same composers have been considered for inclusion in the tracklist of the album release, and RMN Music will also focus on works by living composers.

Therefore we hope to enrich the release including a worldwide premiere of a work by a talented composer selected through this competition and we look forward to receiving new works.
