We are inviting musicians between 17 and 25 who create experimental electronic music or sound art in the Wigan/Leigh area to submit tracks that will be considered for possible involvement in a funded project in 2021. Those working alone on a DAW such as Logic Audio, Ableton, Garageband etc. with a fundamental knowledge of the software and how to work remotely will be our ideal candidates. 3 finished demo pieces will be required please.
We ask that participants have an interest in leftfield music, an understanding of its place in contemporary arts and how abstract art type concepts might be expressed via your work.
While not essential, an interest and some knowledge of our borough on a historical level, alongside long-term family ties to the area would be most beneficial for this project.
This is an exciting opportunity funded by PRS and led by The Old Courts for young, Wigan based electronic producers to work with, and be mentored by active professional musicians who continue to create and push musical boundaries.
To apply, please click the "Apply" button below and complete the form.
Submission deadline: Sunday 31st January | 6pm
Once musicians have been selected to take part in this project, we expect the project to begin in February and conclude just before Summer. More specific details will be available on selection and inline with COVID Restrictions. Places for this project are limited, but please keep checking back to The Old Courts website & social media for further opportunities throughout 2021.
