At the World Shakuhachi Festival 2012 in Kyoto, ESS has been asked to put together a concert representing the shakuhachi in Europe. Performers are invited to submit proposals to perform in this concert.
Criteria: The concert intends to present a broad cross-section of the shakuhachi as practiced in Europe. As a result, expressions of interest are welcome from non-professional as well as professional performers. Performances in all genres (traditional and non-traditional) are welcome.
Pieces are limited to 8 minutes duration.
Required information for submission:
- Name(s) of performer(s) - Contact details (address, e-mail, telephone) - Indication of performing level and experience - Title of piece - Indication of genre - Duration - Indication of performers and instrumentation required (e.g. shakuhachi solo, shakuhachi and koto, shakuhachi and percussion, etc) - .mp3 recording of a demonstration performance - listing of technical requirements (e.g. microphones, PA system)
Please note that this is a festival performance. Pieces with complex technical requirements and/or requiring long setup times cannot be considered.
The selection committee consists of: Michael Coxall Horacio Curti Kiku Day Jim Franklin Jean-François Lagrost
Participants in the concert will be advised by early November 2011.
Please be aware that submission of a proposal to perform represents a commitment to attend WSF12. Due to circumstances in Japan, the organizers have decided that all participants (professional and non-professional) will be required to pay their own transportation and living costs (accommodation and daily expenses) and additionally, a fee of 10,000 yen to participate in the concerts (one fee, regardless of how many concerts one plays in), in addition to a 10,000 yen fee for attendance at the festival. Unfortunately the ESS is unable to provide financial support.
Please do not submit a proposal if you are not able to attend under these conditions.
