New Composer

Wee are no longer accepting expressions of interest, we are now reading all the wonderful applications and will be contacting interested parties shortly.

We’re looking for a composer to compose the music for our new play with original songs for 2022 – ‘Red Sky at Night’, which delves into our British obsession with the weather. It will tour nationally to small scale non theatre venues in 2022, our 50th birthday year.

What does the job entail?

You will work alongside writer Lindsay Rodden and Artistic Director, Marianne McNamara, to compose the music for 6/7 songs to be performed by actor-musicians. All the music will be played live and unamplified, on portable instruments.

Our Resident MD will require recordings and dots ready for her to arrange for the performances.

The composition will happen between November 2021 – January 2022

The fee will be £2,500, on a self employed basis.

We are particularly interested in applications from artists from the global majority or disabled artists. This is part of our commitment to achieve greater representation in our artistic team.

Please send your expression of interest to admin@mikron.org.uk
