I am excited to announce the commission of a new work for solo timpani + electronics by composer Steven Snowden.
- The piece will be 6 – 8 minutes in length
- The piece will be one movement
- The piece is expected to be completed by June 1, 2016
As the consortium organizer, Brandon Arvay will retain rights to the world premiere and first commercial recording no later than October 15, 2016.
Consortium members will maintain performance exclusivity until December 1, 2017 and will receive a printed copy of the score and parts after the work has been completed, which will include the names of all members involved in the consortium.
This webpage was created to help spread the word about the work’s progress to consortium members.
To receive notifications of updates in your inbox, simply click the appropriate box at the bottom of this page.
This page will be used to post about Steven, some of his current and past projects, and to update everyone on progress with this piece (planned interviews and sneak-peak readings of the piece). There are also pages on this site that will discuss the details outlined here, and how to contribute.
In order to take part in this project, consortium members will each contribute a total of $105. Half of the contribution ($52.50) is due on March 1, 2016 with the remaining $52.50 due upon receipt of the piece on June 1, 2016.
PayPal payments are accepted. Please send them to: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re sending a check by mail, please email Brandon for the mailing address.
If you have any questions or would like to become a partner, please contact Dr. Brandon Arvay (email@example.com). Please email to confirm your participation and you will be added to the “consortium members” page once it’s posted on the site. If you know anyone that might like to join the project, please feel free to pass this website link along as well.
