The Avaloch Farm New Music Initiative (http://avalochfarmmusic.org/category/programs/) invites composer/performer combinations developing new and collaborative work to work on collaborations at any stage, from brainstorming potential collaborative avenues to workshopping completed works. The Avaloch Farm New Music Initiative is part of the Avaloch Farm Music Institute, a residency for chamber musicians in Boscawen, NH that provides a unique opportunity for ensembles at any stage of development to have the time and space to work intensively on repertoire, prepare for recordings, concerts or competitions, work with composers on commissions, and forge or reconnect to a group musical identity.
Groups at Avaloch are given the luxury of time and space, providing an essential and focused workspace and environment for the new music community. Each group of composer/performer collaborators will have a designated workspace, private living quarters, three meals a day, additional practice spaces, and the benefit of the beautiful facility and natural surroundings. While groups apply to the Avaloch Farm New Music Initiative as pre-existing groups, the concentration of creative musicians and composers simultaneously at Avaloch stimulates artistic exchange both planned and unplanned. Informal conversations, sharing of current and previous work, and collaborative performances are encouraged.
