Anonymous Sounds


Electronic music has brought about two major changes in the musical world that underpin this call for proposals :
> It makes any sound legitimate, whether recorded, captured, repurposed or created by machines
> It allows a single musician to bring to life and control this imagined sound world – most often the person who thought it up
For this call for proposals we have also imagined an anonymous presentation, so that no element other than the music can influence the jury.


Any electronic musical proposal, of any aesthetic (or none), provided that it is research music, produced without the use of any “traditional” instrument, is eligible.
The creation must be performable live by the person who imagined it.
Open to anyone in the above category, special attention will be paid to the research and/or development project with our Computer Music Director.
