The Music Library is pleased to announce the first publication of the Hugo Davise Fund’s Contemporary Score Edition. The edition is a hybrid publication, with digital, open access scores and printed scores and parts. The digital scores are hosted by UC’s digital repository, eScholarship, and the physical scores and parts circulate from the Music Library. It is the first music score edition of its kind offered by a library. The edition will include student scores that win Davise prizes, UCLA faculty scores created for Davise musician and ensemble residencies, and scores created for Davise-sponsored commissions or projects.
This first published work is Awake 3.0 by Tomàs Peire Serrate. Peire Serrate is a composer from Barcelona currently pursuing a PhD in music composition at UCLA. Awake 3.0 won the Hugo Davise Award in Spring 2018 and received its premiere by the Moscow Contemporary Music Ensemble during their Davise Fund residency at UCLA.
