JTTP 2021: 22nd 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 22nd edition of Jeu de temps / Times Play, coordinated annually by the CEC since 2000. (October 2021)

Call for Contributions

eContact! 21.2 — Conceptual Approaches to Sound-Based Artistic Practices

In contrast to works in which sound materials, gestural characteristics and musical or sonic structures are paramount, the “material” per se in some artists’ practice is rather the concept. This inescapably leads to unique works that in many cases demand a rethinking of listening paradigms and presentation formats. Deadline for submissions: 1 March 2020.

eContact! 22.1 — Sound Art

The seeming singularity of the term “sound art” (Klangkunst) is somewhat at odds with the incredibly diverse range of genres, æsthetic perspectives, techniques and media explored by artists in the field. Building on more than a century of practice, contemporary activities encompass sound sculpture, installation and performance, and more. Deadline for submissions: 1 April 2020.

eContact! 22.2 — Alternative Presentation Formats for Electroacoustic Practices

Reflections on modes of presentation and experience of electroacoustic works and projects that are positioned outside or in a critical relation to the “traditional” — predominantly concert hall-oriented — fixed-media formats of acousmatic and similar practices. Deadline for submissions: 1 August 2020.

Recent works by young and/or emerging composers and sound artists from or living in Canada are featured in the 21st edition of Jeu de temps / Times Play, coordinated annually by the CEC since 2000. (October 2020)

20.3

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. (January 2020)

Recent works by young and/or emerging composers and sound artists from or living in Canada are featured in the 20th edition of Jeu de temps / Times Play, coordinated annually by the CEC since 2000. (October 2019)

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)

20.1

eContact! 20.1 — JTTP 2017: 18th 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 18th edition of Jeu de temps / Times Play, coordinated annually by the CEC since 2000.

19.3

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. 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. (January 2018)
