The intention of the NoiseFloor festival is to take an inclusive
approach to exploratory electronic music in all its forms and place
them together in one single event. The festival will include music
which is composed around beats as a primary compositional element as
well as music which is based around composing with texture and gesture
as formative elements. Regardless of the genre, music at the festival
will be intrinsically linked by an enthusiasm for extending the
boundaries of electronic music through sonic exploration.

Paper submissions which explore this area of research will be given
priority as will papers which cover compositional approaches to
electronic music.

Submissions are encouraged from, but are not limited to the following

Cross-genre works/research
Beat-based music
Widening access to sonic arts
Composition and aesthetics
Sociological considerations

Paper sessions will last 20 minutes with 10 minutes for questions. A
lecture theatre will be provided with projector and stereo playback.
