We received many wonderful new works, and it was tough to narrow it down. Ultimately, we found that Mr. Davis's "blackbirds" (for double bass & live electronics) best fit the overall program, and we are excited to include it in our May 2014 concert. Many thanks to everyone who participated!

There is NO LIMIT to the number of pieces a composer can submit, but we kindly ask that you do not overwhelm us; a good maximum number is around 3. Feel free to email us if yours is a special case.

Although it is not a requirement, and no travel stipend can be offered at this time, we do hope that the chosen composer(s) attend the concert to introduce their work.
There is no prize money associated with the Call for Scores at this time.
Treefalls reserves the right to not choose a piece if none are deemed suitable or we cannot accommodate them in the time given. We also reserve the right to choose more than one piece as well, so send us your stuff!
