The Giga-Hertz Special Prizes are each endowed with 5,000 €. They serve to initiate and promote new projects and are directed to composers of electronic and acousmatic music. Since 2007 they are jointly awarded by the ZKM | Institute for Music and Acoustics and the EXPERIMENTALSTUDIO of the SWR and therefore celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2017! The award belongs to the most important of its kind internationally.
In 2016 the Giga-Hertz Grand Prize for Lifetime Achievement went to the American Curtis Roads who counts to the most influential composers of the electroacoustic genre and who developed further the granular synthesis esthetically and theoretically in his compositions. The presentation of the award in 2014 aroused enormous attention on account of a historical meeting of the ambient pioneer Brian Eno and the joint inventor of the musique concrète Pierre Henry. Previous awardees of the Grand Prize were important figures like Pierre Boulez, John Chowning, Francis Dhomont, Jean-Claude Risset, Pauline Oliveros, Emmanuel Nunes, Gottfried Michael Koenig, Trevor Wishart and Jonathan Harvey.
