Open Call for Music Residency at BASIS

The project aims to integrate residents into ongoing community music initiatives, specifically "BASIS of Music" (a learning group for music-studying kids) and our weekly Jam sessions, both vital assets to our local music community. This intentional collaboration has a dual purpose: fostering creativity and production of innovative music scene.

We firmly believe that music is inherently linked to community, reflecting and being shaped by shared experiences, cultural influences, and collaborative expressions within that community. This conviction underscores our commitment to having residents participate in our communal endeavors.

Objective and relevance
To create: to engage in a collective creative process seeking to produce a new piece of artistic/cultural work.
To connect: to develop a professional network, to strengthen the participants’ professional development, to engage with new audiences.

The combination of fostering creativity through the residency and actively involving residents in community activities can create a synergistic effect, benefiting both the artists and the local music scene. It enhances the artistic landscape by introducing new sounds and ideas, while also contributing to the growth and sustainability of the local musical ecosystem. Residents participating in community activities can attract new audiences to local events and has the potential to create a vibrant, inclusive, and culturally diverse musical landscape. This not only benefits the residents by providing them with exposure but also helps in expanding the reach and impact of local music initiatives. This residency also contributes to a culture of experimentation, collaboration, and artistic exploration that can shape the future of music. Residents have the freedom to explore unconventional ideas without the immediate pressure of commercial success, fostering a culture of experimentation.


The outcomes of the project centered on the production of innovative music and community involvement can contribute to the sustainability, growth, and enrichment of the local music scene in various dimensions. Residents, having been involved in community activities, may continue to engage with the local audience through performances, workshops, and educational programs. This interaction enhances community participation and support for the arts. The innovative music produced during the residency can become part of the local artistic legacy, influencing future generations of musicians and shaping the identity of the local music scene. Residents may adopt sustainable creative practices in their ongoing careers. This can include a commitment to experimentation, collaboration, and pushing artistic boundaries. Residents, as experienced artists, may engage in initiatives, sharing their knowledge and skills. This can contribute to the development of a more educated and skilled pool of artists
