Program Description

Pioneer Works is pleased to announce its 2022 Open Call for Music Residents. We will select residents who demonstrate artistic excellence in work outside the existing models and “norms” of their field, whose practice can make use of our unique facilities and collaborative environment, and those with an interdisciplinary practice. The Music Residency provides musicians and sound artists with the exclusive use of a professional recording studio. Residents work independently or with the support of an in-house audio engineer to create and record new work free from commercial constraints over the course of a month. Resources: - Dedicated music studio - Use of in-house microphones, back-line, recording equipment and instruments. - Engineering assistance from our technical staff. - Potential to set up one on one workshops to learn new skills and recording techniques. - Public engagement opportunities (Open Studios at Second Sundays, teaching, etc.) - $200 unrestricted stipend
