12 musicians will be selected by the previous cohort.
Each cohort member nominates and ranks 3 candidates:
2 of these candidates are nominated from a list of musicians compiled by the cohort;
1 musician is nominated from those who contacted M³ via our website (open call).
One cohort meeting is spent voting on those nominees. Final selection is reached through consensus.
Criteria for selection: we aim to select a cohort of musicians diverse in career experience, artistic excellence, age, instrument(s), access to networks, representation, etc., who are compassionate, egoless, and generous in their collaborative process.
