For the performance of acousmatic works
Pre-recorded work composed in studio, projected on loudspeakers in concert, without intervention of live sound sources.
Spatialised performance of acousmatic pieces deals with directing sounds on multiple loudspeakers spread accross the concert room. Musiques & Recherches’ acousmonium has 76 loudpseakers and an analogic console that allows 44 pathes of spatial projections. The performance competition is “manual”, i.e. without computer-based system memorising spatial configurations. The performer is hands on the console during the competition. His/her physical presence during the performance is required.
The competition is open to the public. It will take place at the Theatre Marni in Brussels during the XIX° international acousmatic festival “L’Espace du Son”, which will take place from 24 to 28 October 2012.
Registrations and other documents requested in the Competition Regulation must be sent to Musiques & Recherches by email by 15 June 2012 (Brussels time), at the latest. There are no registration fees.
Each participant selected for the final will perform four stereo works, including: a work imposed by the jury, a work of his/her choice (personal compositions not allowed), two works drawn the day before his/her performance from a list of pieces proposed to the participant after his/her registration.
The maximal duration of each work is 10 minutes. The prizes will be awarded at the end of the festival.
