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 31 January 2019.
Open and ongoing call for contributions to the CEC’s electroacoustic Jukebox.

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.

Historical and analytical reflections are complemented by contributions that bring “to light” different artistic perspectives and practices. (October 2017)
