The Canadian Electroacoustic Community (CEC), New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) and the Canadian Music Centre (CMC) are pleased to announce the 10th edition of the Toronto International Electroacoustic Symposium (TIES), and delighted to welcome multifaceted artist John Oswald as Keynote Speaker this year. Governor General award-winning and prolific media artist, composer and saxophonist, John Oswald is known for his famous Plunderphonics recordings among a host of other provocative and original projects.

The symposium will take place in Toronto from 10–13 August 2016 at Geary Lane and at the Canadian Music Centre.

We are now inviting proposals for papers, lecture-recitals, special sessions of 2 to 4 panellists, compositions and performances to be presented at TIES 2016 (submission deadline: 16 March 2016).

[See submission details below]

TIES is a unique point of convergence for a growing international community of diverse electroacoustic (EA) practitioners. We look forward to seeing you at TIES 2016, where you can explore and share diverse perspectives on electroacoustic and sound art research and practice, while expanding your artistic and professional network.

The 2016 symposium is the tenth annual iteration of this important opportunity for exchange between diverse EA communities. In recent years, a number of themes have emerged, among them: creative and collaborative practices, curation, research and analysis, algorithmic processes, videomusic and intermedia practices, electronic ensembles and live coding.

As in preceding years, the symposium leads directly into the main concert weekend of the annual Sound Travels Festival of Sound Art. This 18th edition of Sound Travels explores emerging trends alongside established traditions in electroacoustic music. At the heart of TIES 2016 will be a Keynote Lecture by John Oswald, one of Sound Travels’ featured artists. TIES and Sound Travels events will be presented using NAISA’s real-time spatialization system.

All symposium contributions will be webcast live, and text proceedings will be published in a forthcoming issue of the CEC’s online journal for electroacoustics, eContact!

We look forward to seeing you, your colleagues, collaborators and students in Toronto in August!
