Toronto Electroacoustic Symposium 2013 Call for Submissions

toronto symposium

The Canadian Electroacoustic Community (CEC) and New Adventures in Sound Art(NAISA) are pleased to announce the 7th edition of the Toronto Electroacoustic Symposium (TES). TES has become a consistently creative and cohesive point of contact between diverse international electroacoustic (EA) communities and the Toronto scene.

The symposium will take place in Toronto at New Adventures in Sound Art’s facilities at the Artscape Wychwood Barns, from 14–17 August 2013.

We are now inviting proposals for papers, lecture-recitals, special sessions of 2 to 4 panellists, compositions and performances to be presented at TES 2013 (submission deadline: 1 April 2013).
[See submission details below]

General Information / Informations générales

The 2013 symposium is the seventh annual iteration of this important opportunity for exchange between diverse EA communities. In recent years, a number of themes have emerged, among them: creative and collaborative practices, curation, research and analysis, algorithmic processes, videomusic and intermedia practices, electronic ensembles and live coding.

As in preceding years, the symposium leads directly into the main concert weekend of the annual Sound Travels Festival of Sound Art. Under the theme of Sonic Geography, the 15th edition of Sound Travels explores emerging trends alongside established traditions in electroacoustic music. At the heart of TES 2013 will be a keynote lecture by Francis Dhomont, one of Sound Travels’ featured artists.

TES and Sound Travels events will be presented on NAISA’s real-time spatialization system.

All symposium contributions will be webcast live, and text proceedings will be published in a forthcoming issue of the CEC’s online journal, eContact!

We look forward to seeing you, your colleagues, collaborators and students in Toronto in August!
