About the Grant

$18,000 to support Sandeep Bhagwati’s new work for the CalArts New Century Players, CalArts’ professional faculty performance ensemble and the resident ensemble at REDCAT (Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater), where the piece will have its world premiere performance in May 2007. (MAP 2006)

About the Project

This commission and concert will help meet the objectives of a program in the CalArts School of Music, which is dedicated to commissioning works by highly accomplished and talented emerging artists of international stature. The program aims to generate the creation and performance of new work and to provide an opportunity for the composer to shape the work to its performers. The extended residency will give the artists time to work intensely together during in-depth collaborative preparatory rehearsals not usually available to professional performing musicians.

The new composition will have an interactive structure and will be brought to its full realization by engaging CalArts School of Music’s expertise in world music, jazz, new music and live electronics. This commission and concert provide an exceptional opportunity to merge European new music composition with American avant-garde performance.
