The Lebanese Living Composers Channel

The Lebanese Living Composers’ Channel (LLCC) is a project that aims to support the Lebanese living composers by creating a YouTube channel, a Facebook page, and an Instagram account to present their works as score videos. This one-of-a-kind project will introduce the methodology, nature, and practices behind their magnificent works as score videos.

The project will enable generations of musicians and music appreciators to easily access hundreds of works. To learn from, network, and discuss limitless aspects and factors with the dedicated and living composers allowing a wider path to introduce the Lebanese music and culture to a vast and diverse audience.

LEBANESE LIVING COMPOSERS CHANNEL (LLCC) | OPEN CALL

OUR VISION

Lebanon is a country of rich culture, art, and music. A land that is full of creative minds, aesthetic flow, and a cultural mash-up. A line of artists waiting to connect with the outer world. To present their ideas and discoveries through their art and work. Composers that have lived through wars, conflicts, crises, and the biggest non-nuclear explosion in history. It is time to reinvigorate the platform to connect the Lebanese living composers with their boundless audience.

LLCC aims to create a shared digital platform dedicated to featuring the Lebanese Living composers through a studied selection of their compositions and an accessible way to contact and converse with them. The platform will include an archive of composers’ portfolios.

The LLCC has launched a call, collecting the sample data to feature and celebrate all Lebanese living composers, living in Lebanon and abroad, at different career stages, different backgrounds, styles, practices, and influences.
