Composer for contemporary dance soundtrack

Salary: GBP £1500

Application Deadline: February 9, 2019 11:59 pm

Company: Forged Line Dance Company

Job Details

Composer required to create a soundtrack for a new contemporary dance work.

‘Treasure’ by Forged Line Dance Company is inspired by marine life and fossils, and uses these as a theme to explore human experiences of memories and passing of time.

Summary: Ancient marine fossils are abundant on our coasts. We’re drawn to these fragile treasures, collecting them, keeping their stories safe for the future. But are they simply keepsakes, reflections of our own memories, or a warning for what lies ahead?

In an uncertain environment where marine life faces new challenges every day, Treasure is a defiantly positive new contemporary dance work that celebrates the beauty and mystery of the sea.

The piece will run for approx. 50 mins.

The work is currently in creation for a performance in Bath in mid March, so the score would ideally be finished for Mon 4th March.

Fee: £1500

South west-based composers are particularly encouraged to apply, in order to be able to attend some rehearsals where needed. Rehearsals will mostly be in Bristol.

Please send us an expression of interest by end of day Sat 9th Feb including:

-links to your compositions

-details of any previous work composing for dance

-any initial thoughts based on the info above.
