21.1

eContact! 21.1 — Out of the Studio and Onto the Stage: Live coding, laptop ensembles and LOrks

For today’s electroacoustic artist, programming and writing code are by no means unfamiliar concepts. However, their exploitation as a malleable instrument in live performance has proven an engaging development in the past two decades. Alongside live coding practices, laptop ensemble and laptop orchestra (LOrk) configurations have been central to a reorientation of stage-based electroacoustic performance. (May 2022)

eFlash! 2022-05: A Few Words from the CEC Vice-President (James Andean)

Bulletin published six times a year to provide updates to members about the CEC’s activities. In this edition: JTTP 2022; eContact! 21.1 — Live coding, laptop ensembles and LOrks; AGM 2022; CAP to Sonus; eContact! (May 2022)

Call for Contributions

JTTP 2022 — 23rd Jeu de temps / Times Play

Submissions to the 2022 edition of JTTP will be accepted until 10 July 2022. JTTP supports and promotes new electroacoustic works from young and/or emerging electroacoustic artists. Videomusic and multi-channel works are also eligible.

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: 15 October 2022.

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 December 2022.

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 April 2023.
