Speculative Sound Synthesis Symposium 2024, 26 – 28 September 2024,
Graz, Austria Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics, University
of Music and Performing Arts Graz

Dear colleagues,

The submission deadline for the Speculative Sound Synthesis Symposium
2024 has been extended to May 12, 2024. This extension is intended to
give potential contributors more time to prepare and submit their

Speculative Sound Synthesis deals with the relationship between
technology and artistic thinking in computer music. It attempts to
productively destabilize this relationship by artistically questioning
the standards of sound synthesis.

Call for Contributions

We are looking for artistic research contributions that investigate
speculative approaches to sound synthesis, computation, and music
technology. These contributions should explore aesthetic positions
that offer alternative perspectives to standardized ways of thinking
and creating. The symposium aims to unite speculative approaches that
make computational processes perceptible and address the tension
between contingency and control in artistic practice.

Contribution Formats

We welcome proposals that use a variety of formats, such as (but not
limited to) live-performance, lecture-performance, paper presentation,
fixed-media, installation, workshop, exhibition of objects/sounds etc.
