Composition Competition | AADYA: TSUBASA HORI & THE WOMEN OF TAIKOZ

For over 20 years, Australian performing ensemble Taikoz has thrilled audiences with their dynamism, musical and physical expression, original music and productions, vast array of hand-crafted instruments, and unique collaborations with artists of many styles, genres and disciplines. https://www.taikoz.com/about

Each Taikoz member is a highly trained Taiko Artist committed to creating a new genre of music combining the traditions, techniques and aesthetic principles of Japanese taiko with Australian creativity, energy, inventiveness, theatricality and individuality.

Our mission has been to create original music with the taiko – the Japanese drums – at its heart and we need YOU – WOMEN COMPOSERS OF AUSTRALIA – to join us in our quest!

Taikoz’s four amazingly talented and powerful female players will perform the winning entry of our COMPOSITION COMPETITION at the Darling Quarter Theatre in a program led by the fabulous Kerryn Joyce and incredible International Taiko Artist Tsubasa Hori http://tsubasahori.com

The competition is open to female composers of any age residing anywhere in Australia.

We are looking for a highly original work of 5-6 minutes duration.

Entries are due by Friday July 31.

The winning composition will be chosen on Monday August 10 and performed in AADYA: TSUBASA HORI AND THE WOMEN OF TAIKOZ. However, due to the Covid-19 situation, the performance has been postponed until further notice.

If you live outside of Sydney, we will fly and put you up in Sydney from two days before the first performance so you can attend the final two rehearsals and of course, the two performances.

And you will receive $1,500 prize money!
