The Associació Cultural Rodamúsic, with the collaboration of Potries Council and the support of Institut Valencià de Cultura, launch the Composer Residency Program Rodamúsic – 2nd Edition 2022 that will take place during June 2022 in Potries (Valencia, Spain).
This program will consist of a one-week creative residency for a composer in Potries (Valencia, Spain), where the selected person will write a work, ideally, based upon, or inspired by, some elements of the village, region, or natural environment that surrounds it. The piece should be between 7 and 14 minutes, and it will be officially premiered at the concert scheduled for the 23rd of June 2022. It will be performed by the musicians for whom the composer will write the work, and with whom a collaborative work process will be created.
This process will consist of two workshops that will take place during the artistic residency in Potries, in which the artist will be able to work directly with the musicians, and will also be given a mentorship with a renowned composer. Through this collaboration with the performers, the composer will be able to develop their knowledge of the instruments which they will be writing for: their acoustic, notation, sound possibilities, techniques, etc.
During these days they will have access to museums, emblematic buildings, routes and other options to discover and explore the town and its surroundings.
The group that will perform the work resulting from this artistic residency will be the Riot Ensemble, formed on this occasion by Sarah Saviet (violin) and Stephen Upshaw (viola). It will also be possible to include the use of audiovisual process (electronics, images, etc.) which must be previously discussed and approved by the organization. The tutor in charge of guiding and assisting in case the resident artist requests it will be the composer Voro García.
