I-Park Accepting Applications for
2018 Music Composition/Sound Art Residencies

I-Park is now accepting applications for its 2018 artists-in-residence program. Forty-four fully funded residencies are available between May and December, and range in duration from two to four weeks. This multidisciplinary program is open to composers and sound artists looking to enrich their practice in a collegial, retreat-like setting—in the company of artists working in visual arts, creative writing, moving image and architecture/landscape design.

This residency is suitable for individuals focused on concert music (all genres), sound sculpture, architectural and theatrical sound design, media scoring and instrument design. While the typical residency revolves around studio work, those wishing to create mixed-media pieces or sound installations within I-Park’s natural and built environments are encouraged to do so.

Located within a 450-acre nature preserve in rural East Haddam, Connecticut (U.S.), I-Park provides residents with private living quarters in a renovated 1840s farmhouse, a private studio, meals program, fully-equipped workshop and modest library—as well as creative access to I-Park’s expansive grounds. Residencies are self-directed, undisturbed and non-judgmental. You decide what you’re working on and when.

Its music studios are equipped with pianos, digital keyboards/controllers, a collection of percussion and obscure instruments, and hardware for recording, sequencing and sound manipulation.
Details and application forms are available at i-park.org. Applications are due January 22, 2018, and carry a $35 fee to help defray the cost of the selection panels. This year, I-Park will also be offering $500 travel grants to eight international residents. For further information, contact info@i-park.org or 860-873-2468.
