The Model Music Residency is a month long residency in the contemporary Arts Centre in Sligo. The music artist in residence can be a musician, composer or sound artist of any discipline. The residency offers a furnished apartment on site for the exclusive use of the resident (with 24hour private access), and access to a music rehearsal studio.
A number of instruments are available for the resident’s use, including drums, an electric guitar, bass guitar, keyboards and, subject to availability, a grand piano. A PA, vocal mics and a basic recording device (intended for recording rehearsals/practice and not finished works).
The resident will have access to any Model events taking place at the time of the residency, and may arrange to perform publically during the residency and/or at a later date should that benefit the resident’s overall practice.
The first residency is available for December 2010 and applications are now being received, with an application deadline of Monday 25th October at 5pm.
A panel which includes a previous music resident will review all applications. Applicants will be notified no later than Friday 5th November 2010.
The residency will then commence on December 1st.
