Edition MatchingArts (EMA) is initiated by Henry Kelder and students composition of the Utrecht Conservatory. The central group exists of Anne-Maartje Lemereis, Daan van den Hurk, Tim Coenen en Henry Kelder. As a collective EMA wants to be platform for all composers who would like to publish their works without standing alone in business.
All composers are welcome to apply. EMA's aim is to edit compositions that have the ambition to reach a broader public. Especially out-of-the-box thinking is a priority. That means we support young composers, students and alumni all over the world and give them a chance to get their work exposed. But also settled composers can join with one or more works. EMA is also the editor for selected composers from the International Alkema Composition Contest and the Keuris Composers Contest.
Edition MatchingArts is linked to Keuris Ensemble and MatchingArts Records, ensuring initiaves to perform and record pieces from connected composers. More information will be provided on this site with a link to the compositions and composers.
Medio March 2015 first editions will be presented by the collective composers with the album Utrecht Blues, initiated by Dutch pianist Marcel Worms, who worked together with students from Utrecht Conservatory to write short works for his Bluesproject. On Dutch Radio 4 all works have been broadcasted.
