Voix nouvelles Academy 2018 for composers and performers

08/2018 Royaumont foundation – FR


The Académie Voix Nouvelles is open to composers and performers wishing to hone their skills in the interpretation of the contemporary repertory.


For composers, it recreates the complete process of creation of a new work, in professional conditions: commission, composition, rehearsals, concert, under the supervision of internationally renowned tutors belonging to different aesthetics. It calls on the leading ensembles to rehearse and perform the works and to advise and interact with the composers.


The performers benefit from the advice of the expert musicians of the guest ensembles in individual classes rehearsing chamber or solo repertory. They make up an ensemble that rehearses and performs emblematic works from the contemporary literature as well as some of the work produced by the composers of the workshop in public concerts.


In its duration and its exceptional working conditions, the academy constitutes a unique forum for exchanges between composers, performers and thinkers. Several specialists in the domains of management, musical production economics, author rights, the record industry, radio and journalism will also be invited.
