We Make Music – Open Call

This October the Danish songwriter and composer association ’Autor’ is hosting a writing camp called ’We Make Music’ for women and gender minorities who write and produce music professionally for other artists. There are 14 spots on this year’s camp divided between Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland.

Joining us on the camp is a select handful of artists who are all in need of new material. This year we have already confirmed Danish/Faroese/Tanzanian artist Tamara and Danish artist KAJA. This means that there is great potential to cut a song with and form a relation to some very exciting artists.

The writing teams will be put together with at least two nationalities represented on each team. This camp is truly a unique opportunity to strengthen your international network. Every morning we redo the teams to give people a chance to work with as many new faces as possible. Project manager, songwriter Astrid Cordes will be in charge of putting teams together and will be present the entire week.

We Make Music is for people who

  • are women or belong to a gender minority.
  • produce, write or topline for other artists.
  • want to expand their network with other professional music creators from Scandinavia.

When: October 9th-13th 2023
Where: ”Akademiet”, Stefansgade 9, 2200 København
Deadline for applications: August 28th 11:59 PM
Answer for all applicants: September 1st.

You will need to bring your own laptop, headphones and a pop-filter plus additional things you might need for writing. There are a wide range of instruments at the studio. When we are closer to beginning of the camp, we’ll have an online intro meeting, you will be required to participate in.

How to apply

If you want to be a part of We Make Music 2022, please fill out the form.

We recommend you to apply well in advance of the deadline, so you have time for technical assistance, should you need it. You can start the application, close it and come back to it later without deleting your answers.

We encourage everyone interested in We Make Music to apply regardless of age, cultural background, sexuality and any other identity markers. There is an elevator at the studio and an easy access bathroom. 

We will evaluate and choose the participants based on the quality of the songs they include and how well we feel they match with the artists joining us.
