================Call for Music==================
SMC2011 invites submissions of musical works for the three concerts
planned for the conference music program:
1.[Curator: Claudio Ambrosini] This concert features live electronic
works that explore novel techniques for the performance with
traditional acoustic instruments in relation to the possibilities
of interaction and live processing. We particularly encourage works
for acoustic instruments and electronics that link musical gesture
to digital processing, including the spatial dimension.
2.[Curator: Ron Kuivila] This concert features works that explore the
correlations and anticorrelations of digital and analog electronic
music systems. We particularly encourage works that define digital
models of analog live electronic systems and „bent“ electronic
instruments, build hybrid systems that combine and interconnect
analog and digital systems, or provide entirely new approaches to
analog circuitry.
3.[Curator: Marek Cho½oniewski] This concert features works that
reinvent for the 3rd millenium the traditional model of the
orchestra. We particularly encourage submissions of works using
laptops as main instruments for the production, reproduction and
manipulation of sound, possibly with the addition of other
interactive technologies, as well as soloists or small acoustic
