NSEME 2018 Call for Works

National Student Electronic Music Event
Call for Works and Papers
March 9-10, 2018 at the University of North Texas

In its seventh year, the National Student Electronic Music Event solicits works for its annual conference on March 9-10, 2018 at the University of North Texas in Denton, Texas. Our guest artist for the festival will be Carla Scaletti.

Composers currently enrolled as graduate or undergraduate students in a United States college or university are invited to submit works in the following categories:

Music/Multimedia Works
Papers/Technical Demostrations
Audio/Video Installations

Submission deadline: December 15, 2017 11:59pm

Entry and Registration Fee: None

Individuals may submit only one work in each category:

1. Music

-Electroacoustic music for fixed media, with up to 28 channels of audio.
-Works combining musical instruments or voice with electronics.
-Works for electronic instruments.
-Video and multimedia works.

Works in progress will be considered if a substantial part of the work is complete. The accepted works cannot exceed the duration indicated at the time of submission, and the final version cannot be substantially different from the versions submitted.

For the selection process, multichannel works must be submitted as stereo mixes.

Works for instruments and electronics may be considered for performance by the Nova ensemble (UNT's new music ensemble), although composer provided performers are encouraged. Works of any length may be submitted, but, for practical reasons, works up to 12 minutes in duration will be more easily accommodated.

2. Papers/Presentations

We seek paper presentations or technical demostrations on topics related to the field of electroacoustic music. Please submit an abstract for consideration. Paper presentations are limited to 20 minutes, including Q&A.

3. Sound Installations

We seek sound installations to be presented in one of the CEMI studios for the duration of the conference. Basic video projection and sound reinforcement will be provided. Artists will be responsible for bringing all other necessary equipment.

Submission Information

Please submit works and papers for consideration to our submission form by Friday, December 15th at 11:59 P.M. Submissions after this time will not be considered.

Notifications of accepted works and papers will be sent by mid January and posted online to the conference website and Facebook page.
