Classe de création et interprétation électroacoustique
Samedi 14 juin 2014 à 18h30
Lieu : Salle d’orchestre – Cité de la musique et de la danse, Strasbourg
La classe de Création et interprétation électroacoustique présente un concert d’œuvres choisies parmi les meilleurs projets de l’année, qui permettra d’entendre autant de créations que de répertoire – acousmatique, électronique live et mixte. Vous écouterez des musiques pour hauts-parleurs, instruments électroniques
gestuels et instruments acoustiques augmentés et étendus par les traitements «temps réel» : une grande diversité esthétique et sonore à travers des pièces réunies par le désir de croiser la tradition et l’inoui, l’inévitable et l’inattendu, la règle et l’exception…
MusInfo is pleased to announce the First International composition contest for acoustic instrument and electroacoustic device. With this initiative MusInfo proposes to open a new space intended to uphold the work of contemporary composers and sound artists in the field of “live-electronic” music.
Composers are invited to write a short study of 2 to 4 minutes maximum. The electroacoustic device is represented by the software P-Soft that MusInfo supplies on its web page. The composers whose studies are chosen will receive a commission from the Opus Centrum ensemble who collaborates with MusInfo. They will be invited to write a full length composition that will be played and recorded during the Art and Science Days 2015. The electroacoustic device will be supplied to composers by MusInfo for the period of composition.
The contest is open from April 10th until May 15th 2014.
The call is open to composers of any age.
There are no fees for inscription.
The contest is open to any short study (from 2 to 4 min long) written for P-Soft and an acoustic solo instrument (flute, saxophone or trumpet). No other software and no audio files can be used.
The software needed to participate in the contest is available for download at the following address: Software and Manual
The requirements and help concerning the composing process are available at the same address.
The composers can send
• the software “bank” file
• the instrument score in PDF format
• the participant information (name & address)
to the following address: email@example.com
The files must be marked with the title of the work and the name of the author.
The works will be presented to the jury anonymously.

The international jury will nominate the winners of the contest on May 21st 2014 in Bourges during the first edition of the Art & Science Days.
