The Production Costs grant welcomes applications from Koda members and from organizers in the music scene. The grant is open to projects within the art music genres– not only modern classical music, but also sound art, experimental electronic music, and related genres.
The grant can support production costs for new art music and sound art projects on the Danish and international music scenes and wider cultural scenes. You can apply to cover costs regarding concerts, festivals, book releases, presentation, and dissemination projects, etc. The Production Costs grant especially supports the field of art music – which includes acoustic chamber music, orchestral music, experimental electro-acoustic and electronica, music drama, multimedia works, sound art, church music, classical vocal music, and new experimental music for and with children and young people.
CVs for all relevant participants/artists; examples might include an ensemble or several composers if applying for funding for a concert (pdf)
Audio file(s) (Mp3/Mp4/video) If you use links, make sure no login is required.
Applications for the Production Costs grants are accepted two times annually. The application deadlines are:
March 1st September 1st
Applications will be evaluated by a committee. In 2023, the committee comprises:
Martin Stauning(committe chair) Lars Kynde Tan Tuan Hao Anne Clement (ekstern)
No payment can take place until you have submitted the final accounts for the project, as well as documentation demonstrating how you credited Koda Kultur.
This grant takes the form of a so-called deficit guarantee. This means that if the project generates enough income to cover its expenses, no funds will be paid out.
If you wish to make changes to how the funding is used, this requires permission from the committee that awarded the grant. Unless otherwise agreed, the grant will automatically lapse if the project applied for is not completed within one year.
Your reply will be no later than two months after the deadline.
You cannot receive support for the same project from several pools under Koda Culture. This applies according to 6.D in our regulation. Find the regulation here.
This means that if you for example apply for publication, you can only receive support once for your publishing project. You cannot receive support for publication from both The Publishing pool, The Up-and-Coming Grant and The Recording/Release Grant at the same time. On the other hand, you will be able to receive support for other processes of the same project from other pools. For example, if you have received support for the recording/release part of your project, you can apply for support for the next phase of your project, e.g. for promoting your release or from the PR pools.
We have pools that support the different processes that your project can go through. The processes can – from an overall point of view – be divided into:
Create (idea, clarification, writing)
Improve/develop (coaching, camps, education)
Release (record, mix, master)
'Disseminate' (PR/marketing, concert production, fairs and exhibitions)
