Calls for Entries: One Beat Music Fellowship 2013

onebeatOneBeatSM is an international music exchange that brings together musicians from around the world to work with their American peers and participate in a residency and a tour that focuses on musical collaboration and social engagement through innovative people-to-people diplomacy. Fellows will work together in the composition and performance of new cross‐genre works, the creation of innovative recordings and videos, and the development of practices of music as civic engagement.

OneBeat will be a musical journey like no other. It is a chance for adventurous musicians from an incredible diversity of traditions to seek common ground, creating new musical combinations, pushing the boundaries of music technology, and finding ways to involve all members of society in the process of musical creativity. OneBeat endeavors to be the nexus of a new way of thinking about how music can connect people from across the world and round the block.

In the fall of 2012, 32 musicians (ages 19‐35) from 21 countries came together in the U.S. for four weeks to collaboratively write, produce, and perform original music, and develop ways that music can make a positive impact on our local and global communities. We anticipate that the 2013 OneBeat Fellows will an equally amazing group of innovative and socially-engaged musicians.

We are currently recruiting for the 2013 Fellowship. We anticipate selecting approximately 25 Fellows for the 2013 program.
