A little less than Fifteen years ago, Vox Novus started a little chamber music project called Fifteen-Minutes-of-Fame. The idea was to create a way to present audiences with the vast depth and variety of new music being written by living composers and the virtuosity of the musicians championing new music. 15 one-minute works written for a specific musician/ensemble or instrumentation.

There has been a lot in 15 years. Fifteen-Minutes-of-Fame has done over 100 sets of 15 composers with almost just as many musicians/ensembles. Many musicians have performed their sets multiples times and selected more sets or participated in more calls. Primarily premiering hundreds of works in New York City, Fifteen-Minutes-of-Fame has presented works around the world in more than 10 countries.

Fifteen-Minutes-of-Fame has presented works of traditional western instruments such as violin, cello, flute, clarinet, guitar, and many more. The project is also well known for eastern instrumentation and lesser known instrumentation such as oud, hichiriki, bayan accordion, mandolin, Toy Piano, Bass Flute, and harp choir. And has also included ensembles such as the West Point Concert Band, Austin Mandolin Orchestra, The Pone Ensemble, West Point Woodwind Quintet, Passione String Quartet, and many more.

The project’s current form presents works online and rebroadcasts its edited performance on cable access TV in New York City through Composer’s Voice. The project has also been set to dance several times. This year one of the project’s goal is to have 15 different call for scores for different ensembles.
