eContact! 20.2 — TIES 2017: 11th Toronto International Electroacoustic Symposium

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. (September 2018)

2018

JTTP 2018: 19th Jeu de temps / Times Play

Recent works by young and/or emerging composers and sound artists from or living in Canada are featured in the 19th edition of Jeu de temps / Times Play, coordinated annually by the CEC since 2000. (September 2018)

Call for Contributions

eContact! 20.3 — Media-Specific Music

In discussing “media-specific music” we consider situations (practices, pieces) where the media of music in their qualities and limitations are addressed as a subject of æsthetic practice rather than a storage format. Here, music resists translation into another media since its very essence is bound to its means of creation, performance or distribution. Deadline for submissions: 30 November 2018.

eContact! 21.1 — Take Back the Stage: Live coding and laptop orchestras

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: 1 December 2018.

eContact! 19.3 — Notation for Electroacoustic and Digital Media

Any discussion of notation for electroacoustic and digital media necessarily addresses several related and equally important issues.
