THE ARC PROJECT: DIGITAL EDITION
An open, online project featuring over 25 new works from randomly assigned pairs from around the world!
As you all will know, due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, The Arc Project (as well as many other ensembles and performers) was forced to postpone the culmination of our first project of 2020, Songs on Thomas Hardy. In addition to this, our planned open Call for Scores was also cancelled, which would have left us with only one project left for this year. As such The Arc Project Team has decided to launch an exciting digital project.
This project will return to the main idea behind our first project, where composers and performers were randomly assigned to one another and asked to create a new collaborative work for a set deadline. As it would be impossible for us to run a concert at the present time, this project will involve the pairs creating a new work which can be performed and recorded from home, before then being posted to The Arc Project's YouTube channel.
We'll update this page with links to pieces as they emerge, so keep checking back for updates!
