Register to the Call for Musical Creation Composers.

For the purpose of this academy, a call for project is being opened to all composers seeking to create a bridge between music and technologies.
Four projects will be selected by a commission including composers and interpreters. The selected composers will have regular contacts with Martin Matalon and the Proxima Centauri musicians during the 2023-24 season to help them develop their writing project.
They will then rehearse their piece with the Proxima Centauri ensemble and the guest composers during the week-long Academy, from 5th to 11th July 2024.
MIXTE is a partner of the MÀD Festival that takes place in October in the Bordeaux greater area. In 2024, a « young generation » stage will present the selected pieces for a world premiere.
