Betreff: 2013 New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival – Deadline extended
Datum: 15. November 2012 23:51:16 MEZ

Because of the disruptions caused in New York by hurricane Sandy, the deadline for submission of works to the 2013 New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival has been extended until November 30. Submissions are accepted through our web site, http://www.nycemf.org/. The original call for works is restated below.

Call for Works
New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival
April 3-6, 2013

The New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival solicits works for its Festival in April, 2013. The festival will take place at the CUNY Graduate Center, 365 Fifth Avenue, and at various other locations throughout New York City. All concerts will feature an 8.1 speaker diffusion system.

Works may be submitted in the following categories:

– Works for recorded media alone with up to eight channels
– Works involving live electronics, including computer processing
– Works combining musical instruments or voices with recorded media or live electronics
– Video and multimedia works
– Installations involving music or video

A special concert will feature cellist Madeleine Shapiro, who will play works for cello and electronic sounds as part of the Music in Midtown Concert Series.

Works of any length may be submitted, but only a limited number of works longer than 12 minutes will be accepted.

There is no fee for submission, but composers whose works are accepted will have to pay a registration fee, which will entitle them to free admission to all events at the Festival. Attendance is not required, but if the composers do not attend, the fee must still be paid.

All works must be uploaded by the persons submitting the pieces on line. Incomplete or preliminary versions of works may be submitted, but accepted works cannot exceed the duration indicated at the time of submission, and the final versions cannot be substantially different from the versions submitted. Stereo versions of multichannel works may be submitted.

Call for Curated Concerts

Proposals are also invited for the presentation of an entire concert, not to exceed 52 minutes in duration of music. The concert should be organized around a specific theme or idea, such as works from a particular studio, country, or group of composers. At least one person associated with the proposal must attend and will be able to give introductory or explanatory remarks as part of the presentation. The registration fee for these concerts will be higher than for submissions by individuals.
