Call for Artists
Nov-Dec 2006 "Sound Of Musing" show:
The Small Gallery @ Eyedrum is seeking artists who delve into the world of
sound. Between November 11 and December 23, 2006, the Small Gallery will provide an intimate setting for visitors to get comfortable while listening to your sounds through headphones. Visitors will then be encouraged to record their thoughts on paper while listening to the
work, hence the "musing". This sound show will be a multi-artist installation and is open to all sound artists whether you design digitally
or capture clandestinely.
Artists are encouraged to submit more than one track. Please note, all
submissions are considered final and will be presented as such.
Mail or drop off cds in paper or jewel tone case with title, artist's name
and contact information clearly written on face of cd.
Deadline: September 11, 2006.

CALL FOR SCORES, RECORDINGS, PAPERS, LECTURE/RECITAL PROPOSALS
Deadline for receipt December 20, 2020 (5 PM, EST)
Western art music has existed for a relatively short time in Japan and it is only since the 1950's, countering Japan's rush to adopt all that is Western, that some composers, led by Yuasa (b.1929), Mayuzumi (1929-97), Takemitsu (1930-96), and Ichiyanagi (b.1933), began to move away from stylistic modeling of nineteenth-century European forms and twentieth-century dodecaphony towards a more individualistic approach. Concerned with reflecting philosophical and musical elements from their own culture, they began to discover and develop their own music. The music of these artists reflects a new global confluence of multiple cultures - a powerful cross-fertilisation of aesthetics and musical characteristics from both East and West. The music is reflective of a variety of aspects of contemporary Japanese and Western societies, while at the same time deeply rooted in a traditional culture that has evolved over many years.
UMBC will host a three-day symposium of performances, lecture-recitals, panel discussions, and paper presentations on topics that concern Japanese music from the widest possible range of disciplines and expertise. A performance and roundtable is also being planned at the Freer Gallery (National Museum of Asian Art, Smithsonian Institute) in Washington, DC.
Three composers of international stature from Japan will participate in the symposium. They represent a generation born after 1960 - composers who were pupils of Yuasa, Miyoshi, Ikebe, Noda, and Kondo. Hiroyuki Itoh, a winner of international composition prizes in Europe and Japan (including the prestigious Akutagawa Award), has been commissioned and has had work performed by major ensembles including the New Japan Philharmonic, the Nieuw Ensemble, and the Arditti Quartet; Hiroyuki Yamamoto, whose works have been performed at Forum '91 (Montreal), Gaudeamus Music Week '94 (Holland), and ISCM World Music Days (2000 in Luxembourg and 2001 in Yokohama), has received prizes for his work, including the Japan Music Competition, Toru Takemitsu Composition Award, and Akutagawa Award; and Shirotomo Aizawa; thewinner of an Ataka Prize, and composition prize from the National Theater in Japan. He has studied composition in Tokyo, Berlin, and Vienna, and conducting with Seiji Ozawa, among others.
Performances during the symposium will include a broad range of works for different genres (solo instrument, chamber music, choral, traditional instruments) by a number of composers, including premieres of works by Itoh, Yamamoto, and Aizawa. The performers for these concerts will include faculty and students of the UMBC Department of Music, and guest musicians from the Baltimore/Washington DC area and other international new music centers.
This symposium is the sixth in a series of events since 1992 to address Japanese and other Asian musics, organised by Tanosaki and Richards. Visit the websites of the other five to view programs, abstracts, papers, and lecture transcriptions Music of Japan Today 2003 (http://www.research.umbc.edu/~emrich/MFJ2003.html); Asian Music in America: A Confluence of Two Worlds (http://home.sprintmail.com/~emrichards/amia.html); and Music of Japan Today: Tradition and Innovation I (1992), II (1994), and III (1997) (http://home.sprintmail.com/~emrichards/musjapan.html).
**Call for Paper proposals -
In addition to topics that address cross-fertilization of aesthetics and musical characteristics (Japan and other ), and the music and ideas of the featured composers, the Committee is especially interested in paper proposals that address the roles/functions of sound (music) in Japanese culture.

**Call for Lecture/Recitals
30 minutes. CD of performance and short abstract (200 words).
**Call for Scores -
Composers of any nationality are invited to submit a score(s) for a performance at Music of Japan Today 2007. Submitted music should have some connection to the theme of the symposium (tradition and innovation in music of Japan): this connection could be the use of traditional Japanese music and/or aesthetic principles; or/and the nationality of the composer (Japanese,Japanese-American, etc.). Recordings are also welcomed as supplemental material, if available.
1) scores should be written for any combination of the following players:
flute/piccolo/alto flute/bass flute
2) scores must be accompanied by a one-paragraph description of how the music is connected to the theme of the symposium

Is there a connection between your personality and an interest in electronic music?
Please take 5 minutes to help find out, and learn your personality type in the process. Your participation is greatly appreciated.
This survey is part of an academic research project focusing on the correlation between an individual's personality and their interest in electronic music. Do people who are interested in electronic music over represent particular personality types when compared to the general population? And furthermore, are there statistically significant personality variations across the different sub genres within electronic music? Ultimately, the aim of this study is to find out who the individuals that constitute a larger electronic music community are, and what makes them special.
