    Hi Maxers,
    Would love to see some of you at this year's New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival!
    best, Zachary
    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.
    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.

    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.
