I-Park, East Haddam, CT (U.S.), is pleased to announce its 2015 Environmental Art Biennale Program, fifth in the series. It will consist of a 3-week on-site residency during which a variety of site-responsive, ephemeral works will be created and installed within the I-Park landscape. The program will culminate in a public exhibition on September 20, 2015.
This residency will offer an opportunity for an early career artist to develop their skills through
connecting with and contributing to the work of the Music Hackspace, and allowing both partner
organisations to benefit from a sustained relationship with a composer.
The selected artist will spend time engaging with the members of the Music Hackspace, their
projects, research and outreach work, before using the context and resources of the
organisation as a starting point/inspiration for the development of new music or sound-based
work for a range of contexts.
As part of the Embedded programme, Sound and Music and Café OTO are offering an
opportunity for 2 composers to spend 18 months in residence at Café OTO.
This residency provides a rich professional development opportunity. The term composer is used here in the
broadest possible sense, and we are open to a broad range of applications reflecting the
diversity of Café OTO’s programme. These could cover improvised music, composed music,
sound art, electroacoustic music and beyond.
As part of the Embedded programme, Sound and Music and BBC Symphony Orchestra are
offering an opportunity for 3 composers to spend 11 months in residence with the orchestra,
developing their skills in writing for orchestra and having new works premiered.
During this project the composers will have the opportunity to gain inside knowledge of all aspects of the
working life of the orchestra, working closely with players, conductor Pierre-André Valade, the
BBC SO management team, and observing and participating in Learning projects.

COMPOSER IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM
Opera Philadelphia, in collaboration with Gotham Chamber Opera and Music-Theatre Group in New York, is proud to offer the nation’s first comprehensive, operatic Composer in Residence program.
Funded by two grants totaling more than $1.7 million from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Composer in Residence (CIR) program provides a highly individualized professional development path for today’s most promising opera composers, selected on a competitive basis.
The Ucross Foundation Residency Program offers the gift of time and space to competitively selected individuals working in all artistic disciplines. The Foundation strives to provide a respectful, comfortable and productive environment, freeing artists from the pressures and distractions of daily life. As painter Carol Schwennesen commented, "There has been no other art experience that has been as wide and deep and solid as the experience of being at Ucross."
Blue Mountain Center, founded in 1982, provides a supportive working community for writers, artists, and activists. A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the center also serves as a meeting place and resource for progressive movement building. We expand and deepen conversation among cultural workers and support projects that emerge from these dialogues.
