Apply to study and perform in Paris with Chilly Gonzales

Le Trianon, Paris

Calling composers, singer-­songwriters, rappers, producers and more: Grammy-winning composer Chilly Gonzales is looking for six musicians to take part in an eight-day, all-expenses-paid performance workshop in Paris.

The Gonzervatory will explore musical humanism, audience psychology and what it means to be a performing musician in 2018.

Students will receive one-on-one coaching sessions at a loft space with Gonzales as well as masterclasses with special guests.

The workshop will take in two performances at Le Trianon in Paris: one at the beginning of the project on 26 April and the final performance on 4 May 2018.

The eight-day experience will be documented to viewers worldwide via livestreams of the concerts and daily video debriefs.

Gonzales has previously collaborated with Jarvis Cocker, Peaches, Jane Birkin and Leslie Feist. In 2013, he featured on two tracks on Daft Punk’s Grammy-winning album Random Access Memories.

The opportunity is open to musicians of all levels of experience, who are aged 18 years and over and write and perform their own material.

The deadline for submissions is 1 December 2017 and you must be available between 26 April and 4 May 2018.
