Call for Proposals Electroacoustic Music Studies Network (EMS)
International Conference Series - 4th Conference 'EMS07' June 12-15 2007, De Montfort University, Leicester, UK
"The EMS Network has been organised to fill an important gap in terms of electroacoustic music, namely focusing on the better understanding of the
various manifestations of electroacoustic music. Areas related to the study
of electroacoustic music range from the musicological to more interdisciplinary approaches, from studies concerning the impact of technology on musical creativity to the investigation of the ubiquitous nature of electroacoustic sounds today. The choice of the word, 'network' is of fundamental importance as one of our goals is to make relevant
initiatives more widely available." (www.ems-network.org)

Call for Papers
Sound in the Era of Mechanical Reproduction
November 2-3, 2007
Hagley Library, Wilmington, Delaware
For the conference, Sound in the Era of Mechanical Reproduction,
the Centre for the History of Business, Technology and Society
invites proposals for empirically based historical papers that
analyse sound in commercial, technological, and legal environments
since the late 19th century. The conference will take place November
2-3, 2007 at the Hagley Library in Wilmington, Delaware. Our
principal interest is in papers that explore the integration of sound
with the commercial practices of music, radio, film, and television,
and the commercial engineering of sound in social environments such
as shopping and the workplace. Proposals can consider the legal and
cultural implications of innovations in technology and business
practices, such as the impact on the political economy of sound and
notions of sound and sound-based products as property. We also
encourage papers that explore sources of innovation in sound and
music (especially from communities and/or business enterprises
defined by ethnicity, race, or region), as well as those focusing on
the transnational circulation of sound-related technologies and
Proposals should be no more than 500 words and accompanied by a short
cv. Deadline for submissions is March 31, 2007. The program committee
includes David Suisman, Susan Strasser, Philip Scranton and Roger
Horowitz. Travel support is available for those presenting papers at
the conference. To submit a proposal or to obtain more information,
contact Carol Lockman, Hagley Museum and Library, PO Box 3630,

LMJ 17: My Favourite Things: The Joy of the Gizmo
If, as Marshall McLuhan so famously suggested, the medium is the message, then the gizmo must be the one-liner. From baroque violinists to laptoppers, sound artists have long fetishised the tools of their trade, the mere naming of which can provoke an instant reaction: Shout "LA-2A," "TR-808," "JTM45" or "Tube Screamer" in a room full of musicians, and you will notice the eyes brighten, the breath shorten and the anecdotes pour forth. But only to a point: Many a "secret weapon" is held close to the chest.
This is the chance to get that secret off your chest: LMJ 17 will address the significance of physical objects in music and sound art in a time of increasing emphasis on software and file exchange. We are soliciting papers (2,000--5,000 words) and briefer artist's statements (500-1,000 words) on the role of purchased or homemade instruments, effect boxes, pieces of studio gear, "bent" toys, self-built circuits, and so on, in your work as a composer, performer, artist, producer, recording engineer, etc. Wherever possible, please include photographs of your subjects (300 ppi TIFFs preferred).
Please submit a brief proposal by 23 October 2020 to Nicolas Collins at <email@example.com>. Final texts and all materials (text, image, sound file) must be received by 2 January 2007. Contact Nicolas Collins with any questions.
Call for Works OPEN FADER @ Sonorities 2007
The Sonorities Festival in Belfast invites composers and artists working with sound to submit works to be presented during Sonorities 2007. We are especially interested in works that challenge or expand the current vocabulary and practice of digital audio performance and composition.
We encourage two types of submission (maximum of 1 work per category):
1. Live Performances
This includes laptop improv, VJ, audio-visual, live-electronics, sound poetry, circuit-bending, hacktivism. Please submit the work in a documentary format that reflects the nature of the performance (e.g. video on DVD, audio on CD, software for Mac/PC, photographs).
2. Fixed Media Works (from mono to a maximum of 24 channels)
This includes works for live diffusion, multi-channel works with predetermined spatial placement, and works with video. All submissions must be on DAT, audio CD, data CD-R or DA88. Submissions of multi-channel works on data CD-R must be accompanied by an audio CD containing a stereo reduction, along with diagrammatic instructions for mapping of mono audio sources to destination speakers, along with a ProTools session, MaxMSP or Pd patch to accomplish the mapping. Works with video must be on DVD.
Selected works will be featured in four special concerts during the festival. These events will take place in the Sonic Arts Research Centre Sonic Lab performance space. This unique environment for the performance of electroacoustic music includes facilities for sound projection in a full 3D environment through loudspeakers located above and below the audience area. The unique nature of the space makes it essential that selected artists attend the Festival to perform their pieces. The Sonic Lab allows diffusion to a maximum of 48 speakers. (Please see http://www.sarc.qub.ac.uk/pages/soniclab.htm for more information.)
Please include a title and program notes as well as a short biography with the submission. Contact information should include a phone number, address, and an email address. A stamped, self-addressed envelope is required for the return of your materials. Materials that are not required to be returned will become part of SARC's media library and may be considered for future events.
Artists are expected to finance their participation. Sonorities will be able to provide letters of support, which can aid in seeking funding. Please include a title, program notes as well as a short biography with the submission. Contact information should include a phone number, address, and an email address.
