INTER/actions: Symposium on Interactive Electronic Music

April 10-12

Bangor University School of Music

(Gestural Music Interaction) Research Group and Bangor Sound City

INTER/actions is a three-day 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. http://www.riskofshock.org/interactions.html

Call for Proposals: Pieces and Interactive Installations

Deadline: December 16 2011

We invite composers and performers to submit works for instruments and
interactive electronics, instruments and fixed media, gestural
controllers and interactive sound installations. Compositions and
installations submitted 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 / installation /
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 muse03@bangor.ac.uk
. If you would like to send a hard copy audio CD or audio files on DVD
instead, please address to Dr Xenia Pestova, Bangor Unviversity School
of Music, College Road, Bangor, Gwynedd LL57 1YY, UK to arrive by the
16th of December 2011.

including providing any libraries that may be required.
