A Few Words from the CEC Secretary
Canadian Electroacoustic Community
A sound network.
Greetings to all! I hope these spring tidings from the CEC will help to brighten your day. We have some exciting updates to share with you regarding JTTP 2022 and the project’s new residency component, news about the eContact! journal and a call for nominations to the CEC Board.
eContact! 1.1 — Women in Electroacoustics. The CEC has reissued the inaugural edition of eContact! first published in 1998, with a new foreword by Hannah Bosma. The issue is dedicated to Andra McCartney (1955–2019), and features the activities of composers, performers, educators and researchers working in the international electroacoustic community.
eContact! 21.1 — Live Coding and Laptop Ensembles. The next issue of eContact!, our online journal for electroacoustic practices, is in the final editorial stages. For the first time we are dedicating an issue to the topic of live coding and laptop ensembles, and we are excited to share it with you. Keep an eye out for the publication announcement, coming very soon!
