Sound and Music Computing '05
XV CIM - Nov. 24-26 2005, Salerno, Italy
Call for music and sound works
The SMC05 organizers invite the submission of compositions and sound works. We are planning to select a number of works for concert presentation, and possibly some works for installation.
The selection process will give preference to works somehow related to the conference title (SOUND SYNTHESIS, REPRESENTATIONS AND ENVIRONMENTS), and to innovative explorations of digital media in music and other forms of sonic arts.
The word "environments" in the conference title does not imply any special preference for soundscape works. Rather, it is used here to point to a variety of approaches (soundscape not excluded, of course) on both the physical and the social characteristics of the space(s) where music happens, and on the ways we understand and use sonic information in our orientation through the (either natural or humanly-built) environment.
Who can apply
Submissions can be sent in by composers, sound installation artists, and performers too.
Each applicant should send no more than two applications at the conference address:
What should be submitted
Eligible for submissions are
Works for concert presentation should be around 10 minutes in duration or shorter. Longer works will be given smaller priority in the selection process, although they will not be excluded a priori. Installations can be of any duration.
Selected applicants are expected to join the SMC05 to supervise or participate in the presentation of their work. They are requested to provide any special equipment their work may need to be properly presented. This is especially the case with works using live electronics equipment, or special installation set-ups. For the performance of works using musical instruments, the SMC05 organizers may provide a limited number of professional instrumentalists, but composers are also encouraged to propose and bring their own instrumentalist(s). However, at this preliminary stage, the organizers cannot grant travel expenses coverage: only when the selection process will be completed, will the organizers be in the position to eventually consider expense coverage.
With your submission, please provide the following information:
Please, clearly label all your materials (CD jewel box, paper work, scores).
Please, clarify if any of your submission material should be saved for use in concert presentation.
Submissions must be received no later than June 15, 2005
