Three composer residencies are being offered by Victoria University‘s Te Kōkī NZ School of Music next year.
A Composer-in-Residence position has been offered previously at the NZSM, but both the jazz and sound artist residencies are new for 2022. The university’s Composer-in-Residence scheme has resulted in over 50 new compositions— from works for full symphony orchestra to others involving musical robots.
The three residencies are:
A 10-month residency running from February 28 to December 18, 2022, which is open to practitioners working in any musical/sound-based discipline.
A six-month residency running from June to December 2022, open to jazz composers working towards the production of an album of original work. The residency also includes a grant towards album recording expenses.
A three-month residency running September to December 2022, open to sonic artists working towards a presentation of sound art works at Toi Pōneke Arts Centre.
