CALL FOR LISTS
Sonic Arts Network would like to invite sound/image/text submissions for material to be considered for inclusion in a Sonic Arts Network limited edition CD publication concerning ‘Lists’. The edition will be published in November/December 2005 in a limited run of 1000 editions and will be curated by Craig Robinson, illustrator and creator of www.flipflopflyin.com
Lists are never far away from us. As humans, we are obsessed with order. We have an obsessional drive to categorise, sort and list everything.
In Art, Literature, Science and Philosophy, lists can be found. Musical examples of listing range from Berio to Billy Joel.
We ask for audio (music/found sound/sound art/spoken word), literature, pictures and suggested reference points.
The idea may be interpreted in the widest possible sense and can be approached from multiple perspectives - acoustical, visual, philosophical and personal.
We encourage a diversity of styles and materials for selection.
The CD and its accompanying print materials will be the sixth in a series of numbered, limited edition audio CDs, produced and distributed three times a year, with guest curators and specially commissioned packaging. The CDs are free to members of the Sonic Arts Network (for more information on membership visit www.sonicartsnetwork.org), reaching practitioners and listeners in all corners of the globe, with a limited number of issues released in selected outlets. Previous artists whose work has featured in the CD series have included: Christian Marclay, Yasunao Tone, Francisco López, Antonin Artaud, Jaap Blonk, Lucia Pamela and a host of others.
No payment can be offered for submissions nor materials returned.
Submissions should be sent to:
Lists, c/o Sonic Arts Network,
The Jerwood Space,
171 Union Street,
Deadline for submissions is 19 September 2020
Further information/clarification concerning the submission of materials is available from

LIVE ELECTRONIC MUSIC COMPETITION
Harvard University Studio for Electroacoustic Composition
LIVE ELECTRONIC MUSIC COMPETITION 2006
The Harvard University Studio for Electroacoustic Composition is proud to present its first INTERNATIONAL COMPOSITION COMPETITION FOR LIVE ELECTRONIC MUSIC.
An international jury will evaluate all works that arrive before the deadline (September 15th, 2005) and will select up to six works to be performed during the Fromm Players at Harvard Concerts, March 6 through March 12, 2006. The six finalists will participate in a week-long festival, work with the performers, attend workshops on all six pieces and participate in several pedagogical events along with the composition students at Harvard University and the jury members. The final concert will be on March 12th, at which time the jury will award one grand prize. The competition will cover flight and hotel expenses for the six finalists.
We invite submissions of new works (written after January 1, 2021) incorporating two to four live performers and live-electronics by composers born after January 1, 1965. The live performers should be drawn from the following list: soprano (voice), flute, clarinet, violin, violoncello, piano.
Although there is no strict limit to duration, pieces between ten and fifteen minutes are encouraged. The work submitted may have been performed in concert. However, it must not have been released in recorded form and must not have been awarded a prize before September 15, 2005. If a recording exists, it may be sent along with other materials, but recordings are not required.
This year, the live electronics focus is on the creative use of Max/MSP or PureData. The composition may make use of sixteen output channels and will be diffused during the concert on the Hydra Diffusion System (24 loudspeakers). A complete, functioning patch containing all necessary elements and an explanatory note for its use should be included in the application together with the score.
The workshop will be an open platform for the exchange of ideas between composers and performers, emphasizing the practical issues raised by performance of live-electronic music. The six selected compositions will be rehearsed as a part of this workshop. There will also be lectures given by the jury members.
Applicants are invited to submit one composition. There is no entry fee. Student works are highly encouraged.
Selected works will be announced by November 1, 2005. Composers whose works are selected for the final workshop and concert are required to attend the entire week of March 6 through March 12, 2006. Should a composer be unable to attend, their work will not be presented. Selected composers must send parts by January 3, 2021 and a photo (free of copyright). The decisions of the jury are final.
* Submissions must arrive before September 15, 2005.
