About the project:
In 2018-2020, the four DYCE partners carried out a project dedicated to young composers from all over Europe and to audiences in Milan, Oslo, Seville and Tallinn, with the support of the Creative Europe programme of the European Union. This very positive experience gave rise to the desire to repeat and expand the project. This is how DYCE 2022-2023 was born, still with the support of Creative Europe, involving once again young composers from all European countries and the audience of the four cities, and introducing an important new communication activity through the Storytellers.
DYCE new edition consists of six main points:
- 2 international competitions (for Composers and for Storytellers)
- 8 concerts in Milan, Oslo, Seville and Tallinn, within the 2022 and 2023 seasons of the four partner ensembles
- Commissioning of 12 new compositions for ensemble and solo instrument
- Audience Development activities
- Realization of an innovative communication through the voice and images of the four Storytellers and the composers and musicians themselves
- Round table and final conventionThrough the division of Europe into 4 DYCE Regions and thanks to contacts with all the music academies of the continent, the project intends to reach all young European composers and “narrators” interested in participating in the two calls: DYCE wants to know and stimulate young musical creativity, and wants to encourage an innovative, immediate and visual communication of activities related to contemporary music.
The audience, who enthusiastically joined the activities dedicated to them in DYCE first edition, is offered new ways of approaching and understanding music in general and the contemporary world in particular.At the end of the artistic activities, a round table on the teaching of composition in Europe invites representatives of all the European music academies to speak, while a concluding convention tells the story of the DYCE project from an artistic, human and communication point of view, welcoming the testimonies of all the participants.
