2017 BNMF Electro-acoustic Concert


Deadline for Submissions: August 14, 2017
Event Date: Thursday, October 12, 2017, at 7:30 PM
Event Venue: Hulsey Recital Hall, UAB
Instruments: See 2 categories below
Duration: 10 minutes or less

NOTE: In an effort to have all BAMA submitting members programmed during the festival, any member who has not yet been programmed will receive priority over those who have already been programmed for other festival events, such as the Miolina concert. Any submissions not selected for the BNMF will be considered for programming on subsequent concerts.

Requirements: Alliance members in good standing are invited to submit one piece in the following categories:

  1. Electronics. Two-channel audio recording alone, or with live processing
  2. Compositions performed by the composer, or by performer(s) provided by the composer, preferably with electronics.

Works submitted must be 10 minutes or less in duration.

Composers are limited to one submission for this call.

How to submit: All submissions should be sent via email to bnmf-call@artmusic.org
with the subject heading “BNMF Electronic Call – Your Name,” and should include a link (Dropbox, Google Drive, WeTransfer, etc) to the following files:

  1. A PDF score, if necessary (PDF scores can also be sent as an attachment)
  2. An audio recording (MIDI realizations are acceptable)
  3. A PDF document listing the name of the composer, title of the piece, instrumentation, duration, short biographical statement, short performer biography (for Cat. No. 2), and program notes.

Selected composers will be notified in early September.

If the information above is not provided when submitted, upon notification of a work’s acceptance for performance, the composer must supply all pertinent performance materials including a full score and individual parts, a concise one-paragraph bio of the composer, and a concise one-paragraph program note about the work. Failure to supply these materials in a timely manner will result in the composition not being presented during the festival.
