Instruments INDIA Sample Pack – Young Creator’s Competition We have prepared a selection of samples from our Instruments INDIA sample pack, making them freely available for you to download and create new non-commercial tracks to submit to our competition. This competition is aimed at young producers and musicians age 14-21, to experiment and create new music of any style or genre with samples of Indian instruments. The sample pack showcases the beautiful sounds of Indian instruments, performed by renowned Indian musicians in partnership with Milap – the UK’s leading Indian arts development hub. The sample pack includes a selection of one-shots and loops, and you are free to use as little or as many samples as you like in your creations. A shortlist will be selected by an expert judging panel, and these works will feature in an online concert later this year as part of Milap’s online event series. During this event, three winners will be announced for the age categories 14-17 (UK-based), 18-21 (UK-based), and 14-21 (International Award). There will be a £500 award for the winner of each category. Those shortlisted will be asked to provide proof of age and residence.

Variation Project is calling for submission. We are looking to find 5-10 newly composed variations on the canon that was used to compose “Goldberg Variations” by J. S Bach. The canon can be found https://ilyafriedberg.com/variation-project/ Each variation should last between 1 to 6 minutes. You can submit as many variations as you wish, as long as it is done separately. We are launching this exciting project to extend JS Bach’s Goldberg Variation by adding 20-30 newly composed variations. With successful fund raising (please spread the word!) and lots of interests, we hope to bring new freshness to this work. The selections will be made anonymously, purely based on the work. The project assistant will receive the submissions and transfer the anonymous scores for review. The submission to the Variation Project is free. I have decided to fund the project purely from crowdfunding because I wanted to make it possible for composers to submit their works without monetary pressure. So please do spread the word to your fellow supporters of new music and performance. This is the first of hopefully many more projects to discover new composers and their works. In order for this project to come to life, I will need lots of submission AND support thru kickstarter, see details https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/canon/bach-variations-and-more?ref=email The composer of the winning work will receive a professionally produced sound and audio recording of the performance $250 reward The project’s webpage is https://ilyafriedberg.com/variation-project/ Please check the page periodically to be informed of possible new updates.
