International Contemporary Ensemble Foundation, Inc. (ICE) is dedicated to reshaping the way concert music is created and experienced through performance, presentation, and education. This grant will support a June 2012 exchange between ICE musicians, Chicago-based composer Marcos Balter, four emerging Brazilian composers, and selected Brazilian educational programs. The goal is to commission new work from the four participating Brazilian composers, develop and test the pieces in Brazil, bring the music to audiences in programs that explore the synergy between American and Brazilian composition, and engage in on-site research and networking with local musicians, musicologists, and composers. MacArthur funding will support artists' fees and production costs in Brazil.
