CoDI MENTORS 2019/20 will support six Wales-based composers with an outside-eye on their creative practice. They will be paired with leading figures and organisations from the UK’s contemporary music scene:

Sally Beamish • Bushra El-Turk • Lore LixenbergPsappha • Freya Waley-Cohen • Matthew Whiteside

Each partnership will, over six meetings (in person or via Skype) between February and the end of April, work together on a defined area of the mentee's practice creating an action plan and priorities for future activity. Mentees will receive a payment of £100 to cover expenses.

The closing date for applications is Friday 31st January 2020 and the list of selected composers will be announced on Friday 7th February.

Please email matthew.thistlewood@tycerdd.org if you have any questions about CoDI Mentors.

SALLY BEAMISH

I began composing at a very young age, and it was always an instinctive process. I would have liked to study composition but I felt it was more likely that I would earn a stable income from playing, so studied violin and viola at the RNCM. Later I applied to study composition at several institutions in the uk and abroad but was not accepted - partly, I was told, because of my tonal style. 


It turned out that being a player was an excellent way of learning about composing and scoring, and also a great way to attract commissions!
