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.
