The Centre Culturel Irlandais and the Contemporary Music Centre have just announced the recipients of their 2015-2016 Composer Residency. The composer’s residency initiative is part of a 30th anniversary programme of the Contemporary Music Centre, which will take place across 2016.
Four Irish composers have been selected to take part in the residency – Greg Caffrey, Rhob Cunningham, Benjamin Dwyer and Lioba Petrie.
Twenty-two artists across the spectrum of artistic backgrounds will spend from one month to three months in Paris to develop their proposed projects.
This year sees CCI partnering three Irish arts organisations for the first time in the awarding of a design residency (Design Crafts Council of Ireland – DCCoI), a music residency (Music Network) and a composer’s residency (Contemporary Music Centre).
