TIES Call for Submissions

New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA), The Canadian Electroacoustic Community (CEC) and the Canadian Music Centre (CMC) are pleased to announce the 9th edition of the Toronto International Electroacoustic Symposium (TIES), and delighted to welcome composer, performer and hardware hacking pioneer Nicolas Collins as Keynote Speaker this year. The symposium will take place in Toronto from 19–23 August 2015 at the Artscape Wychwood Barns (in Theatre Direct’s Wychwood Theatre and the NAISA Space) and at the Canadian Music Centre.

We are now inviting proposals for papers, lecture-recitals, special sessions of 2 to 4 panellists, compositions and performances to be presented at TIES 2015 (submission deadline: 28 February 2015).

TIES is a unique point of convergence for a growing international community of diverse electroacoustic (EA) practitioners. We look forward to seeing you at TIES 2015, where you can explore and share new developments in equipment and software development, and perspectives on performance and research practices, while expanding your artistic and professional network.

The 2015 symposium is the ninth 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 HEAR n o w HERE, the 17th edition of Sound Travels explores emerging trends alongside established traditions in electroacoustic music. At the heart of TIES 2015 will be a Keynote Lecture by Nicolas Collins, one of Sound Travels’ featured artists. TIES and Sound Travels events will be presented using 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 for electroacoustics, eContact!

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