    -------------------------------------------------
    Call for Works
    The New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival invites the
    submission of art works incorporating experimental audio in any
    capacity, including, but not limited to:
    * concert works incorporating digital audio--works including
    performers, videos, and other elements are encouraged.
    * installations--to be exhibited for all or part of the festival.
    * experimental approaches--propose your own involvement with the
    festival.
    All works, installations, and proposals will be submitted through the
    online submission site, where all file formats are accepted.
    The deadline for submissions is November 1,
    2009.
    Call for Curated Concerts
    Groups of composers (studios, organizations, etc.) are invited to
    submit proposals to present an entire concert of works. The program
    may not exceed one hour, including any introductory remarks. Only the
    curators will be required to attend, and the registration fees for
    each piece will be heavily discounted. Emerging artists are especially
    encouraged to submit.
    Spaces
    The festival takes place at the CUNY Graduate Center, at 365 Fifth
    Ave, NYC (in the shadow of the Empire State building). There are two
    on-site performance spaces:
    Elebash Hall
    a 180 fixed-seat theater with full stage and video capabilities.
    Emphasis on works with multiple performers. 8.1 Meyer, more TBA.
    Segal Theater
    80 movable-seat black-box-like theater with stage area and full video
    capabilities. Emphasis on single-performer and fixed media works. 8.1
    Genelec.
    Off-Site Venues
    Three late-night events will take place in various NYC venues. NYCEMF
    programs works in these venues based on artists' preference.
    For more information on NYCEMF spaces and systems, including
    speaker-arrangement diagrams, photos of the spaces, and a complete
    list of NYCEMF equipment, visit http://www.nycemf.org/spaces/
    NYCEMF Performers
    NYCEMF will supply instrumentalists to support the performance of a
    limited number of selected works. We will not be able to provide
    performers for every piece that is accepted, so composers and artists
    who can supply their own performers are encouraged. Composers can
    express their interest using the submissions form.
    Performers (more to come):
    Kinan Azmeh -- Clarinet
    Marcel Rominger -- Piano
    Madeleine Shapiro -- Cello
    Karisa Werdon -- Oboe
    Margaret Lancaster -- Flute
    Susan Fancher -- Saxophone
    Fireworks Ensemble -- Gtr, Fl, Sax, Perc, Bass, Keyboards, Vln, Vc
    Submission Guidelines
    Composers may submit up to two works, an installation, and a curated
    concert.
    For Concert Works
    Length We encourage the submission of works under 12 minutes,
    but will consider a small number of longer works. Works longer than 20
    minutes will not be considered.
    Logistics We will consider all submissions regardless of the
    complexity of setup. However, please be aware that we will only be
    able to accept a limited number of large-ensemble or logistically
    demanding works.
    Attendance and Registration
    Composers and artists whose submissions are selected for presentation
    at NYCEMF will be required to attend and to pay a registration fee,
    which is expected to be $125-150. NYCEMF is a non-profit festival; the
    fee supports a substantial schedule of diverse events.
