“SpectroDuo” Call for Scores
WHO WE ARE
SpectroDuo is a new contemporary music ensemble, specializing in the performance of music with electroacoustic media.
Founded in 2013 by Martyna Kosecka (Poland) and Idin Samimi Mofakham (Iran), SpectroDuo focuses on electronic and electroacoustic experimental live shows, which are at times structured in complex forms, and are at other times based on free improvisation. SpectroDuo is also dedicated to perform newest contemporary music for saxophone, piano and electroacoustic media.
SpectroDuo performed at various experimental music & media festivals in Poland, Czech, Spain, China, Sweden, Austria, Armenia and Iran.

SpectroDuo, for the very first time in the history of a group, calls all composers without any age or nationality limit, to apply with scores for consideration to perform at our 2019-2020 concert season.
We are calling for the scores for:
alto saxophone and piano with obligatory electronics
The scores for alto saxophone with electronics and piano with electronics are also accepted, but the choice preference goes towards duo compositions with electroacoustic media.
Any type of electronics accompanying the instruments is accepted – tape/live electronics/small electronic devices. Preferred speaker arrangement – up to four channel system.
We welcome works with video as well.
Please keep in mind that very complicated setups in terms of electronic equipment might cause additional problems in programming your work in some venues.
Only one score submission per composer is accepted.
Scores should be submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading, “SpectroDuo Call for Scores 2019/2020”
