Call for acousmatic works – ‘SPACE’ (Stars, Galaxies etc.) – Bangor Music Festival

Call for works, stereo or multi-channel acousmatic
We invite submissions of stereo or multi-channel acousmatic works for a
concert on a SPACE theme (that is, stars, planets, galaxies, the cosmos etc.)
(We will be selecting just one or two of the submitted works to complete an existing programme)
We very much look forward to hearing your work!
