Here’s an exciting new creative commissioning project taking place over the next year which could be of interest to poets.
Remembered / Imagined is an Ambleskramble Production, a collaborative opportunity for two pairs of composers and writers to work together to create a new work for public touring in Spring 2014 by Mr McFall's Chamber (string quintet), singer Maeve Mackinnon, actor/writer Angus Peter Campbell and optional electronics. The artists will be supported throughout the creative process by a team of mentors and workshopping opportunities.
Writers and composers may apply as pairs or as individuals. Two new works will be commissioned. The decision will be announced in early August 2013 and the writing phase will take place between Aug-Dec 2013, rehearsals/workshopping Jan-Feb 2014 and touring in Mar-Apr 2014.

Mr McFall's Chamber are looking for works that will present a contemporary response to Scotland’s rich traditional linguistic and musical heritage, drawing inspiration from the amazing archive at The School of Scottish Studies in Edinburgh. Applicants should be Scottish/Scottish-based and able to travel to Edinburgh throughout the project.
