Béal Festival

Béal Festival, a biennial festival of music and text in Dublin, announce a call for already-existing pieces or proposals for new pieces. We are looking for text-based pieces which respond in some way to the work of our featured composer Robert Ashley.

Pieces / proposals in any format will be considered; the emphasis will be on pieces featuring voice(s) with or without electronics; it may be feasible to include additional instrumental forces.

Contact by August 15th 2012.

According to Wikipedia. Robert Ashley, is a contemporary American composer, best known for his operas and other theatrical works, many of which incorporate electronics and extended techniques. Along with Gordon Mumma, Ashley was also a major pioneer of audio synthesis.
