FALL SEASON
We are pleased to announce our 2019 Fall Season Call for Works! We will select 30 – 40 pieces to be programmed on our channels from September 2019 through early 2020. This project is not a commissioning contest. FMS19 is an effort to promote and curate many works by living composers. The works will be selected by the score follower team. We will hold a similar call for submissions twice every year (one in the fall, one in the spring).

FALL SEASON
We are pleased to announce our 2017 Fall Season Call for Works! We will select 30 – 40 pieces to be programmed on our channels from September 2017 through January 2018. We are switching to a call for submissions model for our channels instead of a rolling submissions model to help us with our curation process and streamline our communications with the community.
This project is not a commissioning contest. FMS17 is an effort to promote and curate many works by living composers. Therefore, unlike FMS16, this year’s campaign will have no commission, crowdfunding campaign, or open voting. The works will be selected by the score follower team, typical of our normal submission process. We will hold a similar call for submissions twice every year (one in the fall, one in the spring).

a 12-member jury selected the following pieces from a pool of 555 submissions in the fall 2017 follow my score call for works

SPECIAL EDITION
The team behind the YouTube channels, Score Follower & Incipitsify have partnered with internationally recognized Ensemble Dal Niente to award a $1850 commission to one composer. In addition to the commission, the winning composer will receive a professional-quality recording of their new work performed by Ensemble Dal Niente. Finally, we will feature this new work by making a recording+score video, and promoting it through various online platforms.

Round 1 #scorefollower team : : Round 2 international jury : : Round 3 people of the internet through a week-long up-voting round on Youtube.
Our project format was meant to be an internet-equivalent to the Grawemeyer Award—a three round process starting with pre-selection by the program committee, which is then narrowed down by an international jury to three finalists, who are then chosen by an audience that has listened to live performances of the works. A Likes Campaign was the only feasible internet-equivalent to an audience-choice award that we could imagine, and whether or not it seems fair, it was really important for us that we turn to the internet community and crowdsource the commissionee. Living in a post-internet world, we figure that we must take the good with the bad, and accept the quirks/flaws of the internet, for this project at least.
As far as we know, this is the first time that a composer was commissioned based on a YouTube up-voting campaign.
