Making TracksDEADLINE:8 June 2020
Making Tracks brings together emerging artists from the UK and around the world to showcase diverse music, initiate new collaborations and explore strategies for music-based environmental engagement. The 2020 program will consist of a Virtual Residency (29th June - 12th July), followed by a Digital Tour.
Musicians from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply, whether or not they have formal musical training. Although the organizers don't aim to be restrictive when it comes to genre, they're mainly interested in music with direct or implicit connections to cultural traditions and heritage. Making Tracks is particularly interested in adventurous and collaboratively-minded musicians who double-up as environmentalists, ethnomusicologists, writers, visual artists and more.
During an opening two-week Virtual Residency, eight selected Fellows will get the chance to create new collaborative works, explore and develop strategies for environmental engagement, and receive professional development and career advice from a team of industry experts.
Following the residency, Making Tracks will carry out an extended ‘Digital Tour’ taking place over eight weeks. During the tour, a network of Digital Partners will use social media to share digital content, including live-streamed performances and new collaborative works incubated during the residency.
