ISCM World New Music Days 2019 in Estonia - call for works

ISCM World New Music Days 2019 in Estonia - call for works

The call for works is now open for the 2019 ISCM World New Music Days, organised in the cities of Tallinn and Tartu, Estonia, on 3-10 May 2019. The festival will have a focus on choral music as well as experimental works that make connections between music and other artistic disciplines, including the intersections between music and architecture, theatre, audiovisual art, and literature.

As the Australian section of the ISCM, the Australian Music Centre is looking for works to include in their official submission. The AMC will convene a panel who will select six works for consideration by the ISCM festival jury. The deadline for submissions to the Australian section is Friday 31 August 2018. At least one work from every official submission will be performed at the festival. Preference will be given to shorter compositions, and to pieces composed after 2008.

Submissions to the Australian section should be sent to the AMC by 5pm on Friday 31 August by email. For all categories, please study carefully the relevant section of the website. Works that do not conform with the category requirements in regard to instrumentation or duration will not be considered. For a list of required attachments, see below.

For email submissions, please include text information (biography, technical rider, program note etc.) in one or more text documents (.doc, .docx, .pdf, .rtf, .txt formats) and not in the body of your email submission. Do not submit .pages format files.

A dropbox link is preferred for large attachments and must be supplied if the combined size of files exceeds 9MB. Digital files can also be sent by mail on a CD or DVD to: Australian Music Centre, ISCM World Music Days submissions, PO Box N690, Grosvenor Place, NSW 1220. All materials should be clearly marked with the composer's name and reach the AMC by Friday 31 August 2018.

Submissions to the AMC should include:

1) The composer's personal and contact information as required by the ISCM submissions wizard: full name; name as it should appear in the program; date of birth; mailing address; nationality; gender (male/female/other); phone number; email; website (if applicable)

2) PDF score, or audio/video documentation (for compositions without a written score)

3) Audio or video recording of the work where possible

4) Program note of the submitted work in English (max. 100 words)

5) Technical rider with the specifications of all equipment necessary to perform the work

6) Short biography of the composer in English (max. 100 words)

7) Proof of nationality of the composer (passport scan)

8) High-resolution photograph of the composer

9) Accurate duration of the work

10) Year of composition

Individual artists whose work does not get selected by the section may also submit directly to ISCM. Deadline for these individual submissions is 30 September 2018 at 12pm GMT, and a payment of €50 is required - further details are available on the website (see the last section about how to lodge an individual submission).
