In January 2015, six singers from EXAUDI will be in residence at the Britten-Pears Young Artist Programme at Aldeburgh, along with director James Weeks and composer Michael Finnissy, to work with six young composers writing for vocal ensemble.
If you're a young composer, still studying, or at the start of your career, there's information on how to apply here.
More strange instructions from composers. One asked Tom Williams: "Can you sound more like a trombone and less like a chicken?"
Stefano Gervasoni's #Exposure2014 piece was inspired by a desire to "prolong the tradition of unity between poetry and music" in madrigals.
We've grown pretty comfortable with difficult new music, and one composer had to tell us "It needs to sound more like you're in pain".
