We are inviting composers to submit works for fixed media (electroacoustic sounds or audiovisual), live performance, or installation. Works which deal with the following themes are especially encouraged:

Topic 1 - Music at the Borders

  • Engaging with Folk Music in contemporary contexts
  • Sounds of Tradition
  • Responding to past and present

Topic 2 - Interfaces, Interactions and Improvisation

  • New musical interfaces/instruments
  • Exploration of gestures and what they trigger
  • The performer as composer: new directions in improvisation
All accepted papers, independently of the presentation format, will be included in the conference Proceedings. The Proceedings will have a ISBN and will be distributed both as a printed and an electronic publication. The electronic version will be available on the SMC website (smcnetwork.org) Please note that at least one of the paper authors has to register to the conference in order for the paper to be accepted, presented, and included in the Proceedings
