BAN BAM Commission & Development Award
IMC and Moving On Music are pleased to announce that applications are now open for the BAN BAM Commission & Development Award 2022/23. This is the second edition of a new creative commissioning and career development opportunity open to Irish-born or resident female and gender minority composers in Ireland.
Improvised Music Company’s BAN BAM initiative began in 2017/18 with the aim of promoting women in jazz and improvised music to address a gender imbalance in the scene.
In 2020, IMC and Moving On Music came together to launch a BAN BAM commission and development opportunity for female and gender-minority artists across the island of Ireland. The selected composers - Úna Monaghan, Sue Rynhart, & C.V. Lunny wrote new works which, due to the global COVID-19 pandemic were developed in late 2021 into site-specific audio-visual projects.
IMC and MOM are pleased to once again come together with this new commission and development opportunity for 2022/2023, to include two concert performances of the commissioned works in Dublin and Belfast.
