Call for Pieces

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.

Deadline for submission: 11th October 2011

Submit to:

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.

For more information email:

The selection committee,
European Shakuhachi Society
