The Parsnip Ship | Season Five Musician Submissions
THE PARSNIP SHIP IS ALWAYS LOOKING FOR NEW MUSIC...
To be paired with plays that engage audiences in an intimate setting and on a podcast format. We see our recordings as a fun collaborative effort among us, the playwright, the directors, musicians and the actors! Before you send in your music for consideration, take a listen to one of our episodes from our past seasons.
Each play selected as part of our season will have one evening to be recorded in front of a live audience as a reading. A guest musician, like yourself, would be paired with the play to supplement the experience of hearing the text. We finish off the recording with a short and personal interview between the playwright and our host, Iyvon Edebiri. The recording is then edited and released as a podcast soon after.
The standard format for our live recordings are as follows (and is adjusted according to the length of the play):
*First song by musical guest
*Act 1 of play
*Second song by musical guest
*Act 2 of play
*Third song by musical guest
*Host and playwright interview
*Outro / Thank Yous
*Fourth song by musical guest
The logistical requirements to know before applying:
*We prefer New York City or locally based musicians
*We can accommodate 3 inputs for our musical guest, i.e. 1 mic and 2 instruments/2 mics and 1 instrument/3 mics
Lastly, before you submit an application, it is strongly encouraged to listen to a previous episode via
