2013 Electronic Music Midwest Festival
Kansas City Kansas Community College and Lewis University are pleased to announce an international call for submissions for the Electronic Music Midwest Festival, to be held October 24-26, 2013 at Kansas City Kansas Community College.

Each concert will feature an 8.1 speaker diffusion system. Acclaimed pianist Kari Johnson will be the featured performer and composers are encouraged to submit works for her consideration. Any composer regardless of region, age or nationality may submit one work.

EMM accepts all electroacoustic works, but we especially seek music that falls within one of the following categories:

1) Composition for piano and fixed media and/or live electronics
2) Two channel works for fixed media
3) Up to eight channel works for fixed media
4) Instrument(s)/Voice(s) and fixed media or live electronics (composer to provide performers)
5) Works for video
6) Sound Installations and Interactive Media (composer to provide all non-standard equipment)
7) Live Laptop works
8) Live Interactive works

Deadline: June 1, 2013

Entry Fee: none

Submission Guidelines:
1) For consideration, applicants must register and complete an online submission form available at http://www.emmfestival.org. Complete submission information and guidelines are available on the EMM website.

2) For adjudication purposes, multi-channel works (up to 8 channels) must be submitted as a stereo mix and uploaded at http://www.emmfestival.org. The EMM 8-channel speaker array uses a front and rear center.

3) „Works in progress“ will be considered if a substantial portion of the work is submitted.

Composers whose works are selected for this festival are required to submit a $60 registration fee at the festival and must agree to attend the festival. Regrettably, EMM is not able to offer travel stipends or honorariums to festival participants at this time.

EMM is not able to consider works that do not conform to the guidelines outlined above.
