Open Call GMEA Residencies 2025

deadline on


Accessible to all sound and experimental musical practices of our time, GMEA accompanies the emergence of new musical forms coming from written, improvised, instrumental, electroacoustic or electronic music. Musicians or ensembles for sessions are welcome for creation, recording, or research; the average duration for a residency is 5 days but it can be arranged according to the nature of the project. During residencies, artists can benefit from support and GMEA’s network (artists, professionals, resource).


Particular attention will be given to projects that include an experimental process. Diversity in composition of teams will also be a determining factor.


GMEA provides a workspace and a technical and administrative team available for the selected artists according to their needs. These residencies take place in GMEA (studios and rehearsal room), or on the premises of the GMEA’s partners (Scène Nationale d’Albi, Musée du Saut du Tarn, Ville d’Albi, Théâtre Le Colombier, Abbayeécole de Sorèze…). GMEA covers the costs of the travels for artists to Albi (France and Europe), the accomodation, and the meal fees for the time of residency. An additional financial support for production and also structuring assistance could be considered depending on each project. In agreement with the artists, GMEA regularly organizes open meeting times with the audience to introduce them to experimental practices.
