ShareMusic & Performing Arts are looking for two composers to contribute to a new repertoire for our ensemble Elefantöra.

We need two new duos, with a playing time about 5-10 minutes, for electronic instruments.  

The electronica ensemble Elefantöra was formed in 2017 by ShareMusic & Performing Arts. The ensemble works primarily with various digital music tools and belongs to a growing post-digital genre that explores musical expression through new working methods and instruments. Listening always determines how the musical space shifts in size and density, changing through Elefantöra's sound design.  

The ensemble consists of four musicians, but also works in smaller constellations. Over the years, Elefantöra has collaborated with several established composers, ensembles, and orchestras.  

We welcome your musical ideas to help us push the boundaries of collaboration and offer new perspectives on inclusive compositional processes. The ensemble works co-creatively with the composers we commission music from. To communicate your idea, it is a prerequisite that you are willing to work with different ways of describing and notating music. The ensemble has extensive experience in working with different forms of graphic notation, text-based scores, and audioscore and is open to other techniques.
