KOMPOSIT: •Assists composers in developing new and innovative pieces through a staged rehearsal process in direct collaboration with performers; •Targets composers who find it hard to have their works realised; •Recruits skilled musicians from a range of different backgrounds and musical influences to act as a living resource for composers to work with; •Sources personnel from classical, jazz, folk and world music traditions and offers the potential to mix instrumentations and styles that are not associated with a typical classical orchestra; •Creates working environments of inclusivity, innovation and quality that enhance communication between composers and performers; •Supports both composers and musicians of many years’ experience as well as emerging talent entering the workforce for the first time. Komposit already has funding for a pilot project which is due to commence on May 21st 2009. We are now looking towards finding funding for the project to continue on after the pilot has finished.
