Open Call for the Conlon Foundation Composer-in-residence program
In 2015 the Conlon Foundation is starting up a residency program for composers interested in working with the foundation's Yamaha Disklavier to create an imaginative composition for Disklavier solo with electronics, and/or for combinations with other media, with the option of using a pianist. Using alternative controllers, video, live sampling or the 'preparation' of the Disklavier are among the possible techniques to be utilized in the realization of the composer's artistic ideas.
