LOCAL bands and musicians making contemporary, non-traditional sounds in genres like rock, metal, indie, rap and electronic music are being invited to apply for a one-off project in which artists will record and stream a live performance at Mareel.
Shetland Arts wants to work with local bands to produce a short live performance film and accompanying EP as part of its Refresh Now project,
The film will be broadcast on Shetland Arts social media and online platforms and both the EP and film will be owned by the band or musician for their own promotion and marketing.
Performances must comply with all Covid-19 restrictions in place at the time. Performances will be postponed if necessary.
Performances will also be filmed and may be broadcast on social media.
Shetland Arts is looking for bands who can play a short set, between 20 and 30 minutes in length, of original material.
The arts organisation will provide one day’s rehearsal and one day of live filming/recording in Mareel, a payment of £150 per day per performer for two days, technical and marketing support, and a film maker.
Application information can be found online.
All applications should be made to Shetland Arts by Sunday 7 February.
The Refresh Now project has already commissioned new work from a range of creatives, and is also looking to bring theatrical performances to the Garrison Theatre this spring.
