NSEME 2016 : Call for works

National Student Electronic Music Event : Call for Works and Papers

March 25-26, 2016 at the University of Oklahoma
In its fifth year, the National Student Electronic Music Event solicits works for its annual conference in March 25-26 2016 at the University of Oklahoma in Norman OK.

Composers currently enrolled as graduate or undergraduate students in an accredited college or university are invited to submit works in the following categories:

1. Music
2. Papers

Submission deadline: December 16, 2015
Entry fee: none
Individuals may submit only one work in each category.
Keynote Speaker, Guest Artists, and Curated Concerts
Internationally award-winning composer Panayotis Kokoras will present the keynote lecture and a concert of his works. Acclaimed electroacoustic musicians Elizabeth McNutt and Andrew May will present a curated pre-conference concert on the evening of Thursday, March 24th.

1. Music

· Electroacoustic music for fixed media, with up to eight channels of sound.
· Works combining musical instruments, or voice with electronics.
· Video and multimedia works.

Works in progress will be considered if a substantial part of the work is complete. The accepted works cannot exceed the duration indicated at the time of submission, and the final version cannot be substantially different from the versions submitted.

For the selection process, multichannel works must be submitted as stereo mixes.

Works involving instrumentalists are welcome, but if the submitter is unable to provide the performer(s), we do not guarantee musicians will be provided, though we will attempt to secure performers on a limited scale. Works of any length may be submitted, but, for practical reasons, we will more likely be able to program works up to 12 minutes duration than longer ones.

2. Papers

We seek paper presentations on topics related to the field of electroacoustic music. Please submit an abstract for consideration. Paper presentations are limited to 20 minutes, including Q&A.

Submission Information

Please submit works and papers for consideration : Wednesday, December 16 at 11:59 P.M. Submissions after this time will not be considered. The conference web address is http://nseme.org/. Notifications of accepted works and papers will be sent by December 24th and posted online at: https://www.facebook.com/nseme2016.
