Commissions for 2020
DECIBEL NEW MUSIC ENSEMBLE
20 x 2 minute online composition commissions for 2020
Like many other ensembles and art organisations, the Decibel New Music Ensemble has had its activity for the year cancelled or delayed until 2021. But we want to keep playing while we are #alonetogether, and provide some support for our community of artists and audience.
To this end, we are launching our 2 Minutes From Home project, where we commission 2 minute works for the Decibel ScorePlayer from artists we have worked with in the past, and invite guest performers. Each of these works, as well as works created by each member of the ensemble, will be presented as video releases showing the ensembles playing their parts in their homes together, alongside the score. There will be 20 works released throughout 2020 via our website and social media.
The artists we are commissioning are artists we have worked with in the past click on their name to see and hear their work.
