Art Omi Music is inviting the best musicians from all over the world to be part of a musical residency program in 2020 in the USA. Art Omi has a vacancy for twelve to fifteen musicians and composers from all around the globe. Moreover, the program will run for half weeks each summer for uniquely collaborative music making residency.
The program will encourage participants to share ideas, perform each other’s works, and write music for one another. The program also gives participants an opportunity to explore their own musical vision and broadening their artistic and cultural horizons.
The participants will have have an opportunity to perform in front of the public and small mass of people. Moreover, the organizer welcomes composers and sound-makers working in all genres and from all backgrounds from all over the world. In addition to that, it encourages and fosters participation in new collaborative environments.
The residential facility of this Musical Residency Program 2020 is two and a half hours north of New York City in the historic Hudson River Valley’s Columbia County, USA. The hamlet of Omi is close to the small town of Ghent, NY, as well as Albany, Chatham, and Hudson, NY, which offers train connections less than thirty minutes away (we provide transportation to and from the Hudson, NY train station).
The facilities, situated on three hundred acres of open land, include the Sculpture & Architecture Park, Benenson Center and Newmark Gallery, a large two-story barn, and other farm structures with spaces for rehearsing, plus contemporary residence buildings designed with a vernacular reference to local barns, all surrounded by abundant perennial beds and expansive lawns dotted with fruit trees.
There is no bar of nationalities to apply for this program as it is open to all candidates from all over the world. Candidates must submit the work sample (audio) with a description (text). In addition to that, applicants must also submit a brief application statement & bio. The decision of 2020 residency applicants will come out in April 2020.
