The Riot Ensemble has announced its annual Call for Scores, open to composers throughout the world. The ensemble is seeing submissions from composers for two new works, to be performed by the ensemble in July and October 2022. There is no entry fee.

The first commission is for a quartet, lasting 5-8 minutes, for flute, clarinet, violin, and cello (with or without electronics) which Riot will premiere at Israel’s Tzlil Meudcan festival in July 2022. The commission fee for this work is worth £750. 

The second commission is for an ensemble work, lasting 10-12 minutes, for up to twelve musicians (with or without electronics) for Riot’s autumn 2022 concert at Kings Place, London as part of its ongoing residency at the concert halls. The winning piece will be presented alongside Anna Korsun’s Ulenflucht (for 20 singing and playing musicians) and David Del Tredici’s Syzygy.  The composer will select their own line-up of 12 musicians from these forces.  The commission fee for this work will be £1500 - with an additional fund of up to £500 available to offset travel costs. The premiere will take place at Kings Place on 14 October 2022. 

The deadline is 27 December 2021, full details from the Riot Ensemble website.
