The New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival (NYCEMF) solicits works for its festival in June 2020. The event will take place in the heart of New York City at New York University and the Sheen Center for Thought and Culture, from Sunday June 14 through Sunday June 21, 2020. Details of the festival are shown below.

I. Music and Video

Composers or performers are invited to submit works in any style of electroacoustic music in any the following categories:

  • Electroacoustic music for fixed media alone, with up to 16 channels of sound.
  • Works involving live electronics, including computer processing and laptop orchestras, or live coding, with up to 8 channels.
  • Works combining musical instruments or voices with live or fixed media electronics, up to 8 channels.
  • Video and multimedia works.
  • Installations involving music or video

Submission deadline: December 31, 2019.

Entry fee: None.

  1. Individuals may submit one or two concert works. Individuals may also submit proposals in other tracks (installations, papers, etc.). Works of any length may be submitted, but to be as inclusive as possible, we are more likely to select shorter works, If submitting two works, at least one work should be under 6 minutes.
  2. Works in progress are acceptable if a substantial portion of the work is complete. If accepted, the final duration of the work cannot exceed the duration specified at the time of submission.
  3. Please upload high quality MP3 stereo mixes for your audio, including multichannel works. For videos, we prefer lower resolution files.
  4. Composers may submit works for any instrumentation, but if the submitter is unable to provide the performer(s), additional costs will need to be paid for each performer provided by NYCEMF. Only works with no more than four performers can be considered, unless the submitter is able to provide the entire ensemble.
  5. Performers (artists that are not the composer of the work) may also submit up to two works with the agreement that they will play them if selected.
  6. Works that have been performed at a previous NYCEMF festival are not eligible for submission unless it has been substantially revised.
  7. Works must be submitted online through our Conference Management Toolkit (CMT).
  8. All submissions should be anonymous. Please make sure that no artist markings are recognizable.
  9. NYCEMF will provide in each performance space a mixing console, speaker system, microphones, cables, and a computer and audio interface for the playback of fixed media audio/video. Composers of interactive works will be responsible for providing their own computer, audio interface, and any specialized peripherals.

Performers

The performers for NYCEMF 2020 will be listed here soon.

16-channel Spatialization Lab

A special venue will be equipped with an array of 16 speakers, 8 in the usual surround sound configuration and 8 at a higher level, allowing sound to be spatialized in three dimensions. We solicit works that will take advantage of these resources, and we encourage works that use the full 16-channel capability as well as the diffusion of works with fewer channels. We will allow composers whose works are played in this space additional tech time to plan their diffusion. Only fixed media works or video will be played in this space, not works involving musical instruments.
