Shortwave Radio, CD Players, the Inner Ear and Waltzing Goldfish: Medium-specific practices in sound
Theoretical discussions of medium specificity within electroacoustic and sonic art disciplines often draw on individualized works definitively bound to a singular medium. In practice, however, artists engage with the idea through a somewhat broader reflection on practices, projects and processes that prove challenging or impossible to “translate” into another medium.
Call for Contributions
For many electroacoustic composers and sound artists, coding and programming are by no means new concepts. However, their manifestation as an aspect of live performance has proven an engaging development over the past decade. The Laptop Orchestra configuration is commonly encountered in live coding contexts. Deadline for submissions: extended to 15 April 2020.
Open and ongoing call for contributions to the CEC’s electroacoustic Jukebox.

With renowned sound artist Chantal Dumas as Keynote Speaker, presentations at the 11th edition of the Toronto International Electroacoustic Symposium (TIES) reflected an increasing engagement with non-fixed sound-based practices such as installations and generative works in which the relation between viewer and work alters the presentation of the work itself.

Any discussion of notation for electroacoustic and digital media necessarily addresses several related and equally important issues. An understanding of the nature, needs and intentions of visual representation help ensure the effective, appropriate communication and transmission of the notated work or performance practice.
