INTER/actions: Symposium on Interactive Electronic Music

Sunday March 6, 2016

Bangor University School of Music

In collaboration with the Bangor Music Festival

INTER/actions is a symposium and mini-festival focusing on performance

and interaction in electronic music. We aim to provide an environment to

exchange ideas and instigate collaborations for composers, performers,

sound artists and music technologists interested in the role of the

performer in electronic music, whether in the traditional sense, or

audience-as-performer. We are looking for creative proposals for

performances, interactive installations and paper sessions.

Call for Proposals: Pieces

Deadline: December 18 2015

We invite composers and performers to submit works for instruments and

interactive electronics, instruments and fixed media or gestural

controllers for the festival concerts. Compositions must be fully

documented with technical performance specifications. A concert

recording, studio recording, simulation or video should be submitted,

sufficient to give a reasonable idea of the final form of the piece /

performance. Please send a link to an online audio excerpt or email an

mp3 file along with full technical requirements and a score, if

applicable, as well as a short biography (150 words) to

interactions2016(at)gmail(dot)com .

Performances will be able to make use of the following facilities:

8-channel loudspeaker playback (ATC)

Various microphones (including Schoeps Collette/MK4 and AKG414)

Soundcraft mixer with 16+16 inputs (switchable), 16 direct outputs, 8

groups, 2 mix, 4 AUX send, 2 FX send

Mac Pro computer with MOTU 24 i/o interface

3x MOTU 828 and 1 RME Fireface 800 FireWire/USB interfaces

Large-screen video projection

Steinway D Concert Grand Piano

Composers / performers who need additional equipment are requested to

bring their own. Composers / performers who make use of their own

software (for example, Max patches, SuperCollider) will be expected to

take responsibility for installing and operating the software, including

providing any libraries that may be required. We are not able to provide

performers for the pieces. Selected composers are expected to attend the

symposium to contribute to the sense of community.

Call for Proposals: Papers and Demos

Deadline: December 18 2015

We are open to proposals for 20-minute paper and demo presentations on

topics including, but not limited to:

Performance practice in electronic music


New interface design

Compositional issues

Improvisation in interactive contexts

Analysis of interactive works

Please send a 250-word abstract, as well as a short biography (150

words) to interactions2016(at)gmail(dot)com

Unfortunately, we are not able to make contributions to composer or

performer expenses in this edition, but we will also waive the

registration fee, making the symposium free to attend.
