Application Deadline: February 26th, 2021
OneBeat is accepting applications for OneBeat Lebanon, the fifth installment of its OneBeat Abroad series. OneBeat Lebanon will digitally convene 10 Lebanon-based musicians and two U.S.-based musicians for an intensive residency to co-create original work and to develop civically engaged music initiatives. During the 3-week intensive digital residency, 12 OneBeat Lebanon Fellows will form ensembles to write, record, produce, and perform genre-defying work, re-invent existing music, lead online workshops with refugee youth, attend virtual masterclasses and produce a streaming final concert for the public.
This virtual program will draw inspiration from the music of our ancestors, and the fundamental musicality that predates language itself, posing the question: What if, in a parallel universe, music was the only language? OneBeat Lebanon is an initiative of the U.S. Department of States Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and produced by Found Sound Nation. This program was produced with the generous support of the Public Affairs Section at the U.S. Embassy in Lebanon.
Musicians and sonic artists, ages 19-35, from Lebanon and the United States are invited to apply. Fellows will receive a $1,500 USD honorarium as well as stipend for purchasing necessary audio equipment and enhanced internet connectivity. Selected Fellows and Alternates will be notified by April 23, 2021.
Application Open: January 29 – February 26th, 2021
Program Dates: July 5 – 26, 2021
