SoundImageSound call

This might need to be for next year, since I don't think I've seen this call until just now.

SoundImageSound VI - Friday, February 13, 2009
Submission Postmark Deadline – Monday, December 8, 2008

With SoundImageSound VI the Conservatory Computer Studio for Music Composition (CCSMC) in combination with the Conservatory of Music, University of the Pacific presents the seventh year of concerts featuring the work of artists who cross boundaries to combine the aural and the visual. For information about previous events go to:

Original works that combine sound and visual image in any style will be considered. Individual artists or collaborating teams may submit. For fixed works the visual elements may be still or moving image projected from DVD. If you wish to use an alternative format (computer HD, mini-dv, etc) inquire before submitting. Works requiring multiple projections may be considered. Unique or unusual equipment required for the presentation of a particular piece will be the artist’s responsibility.
Taking advantage of a newly constructed venue on campus, this year SoundImageSound adds both a club concert and live performance to its usual presentation of works for “fixed media”. Artists may submit works in any or all of the following categories -

Concert I - Fixed media concert works for multi-channel sound (2 - 5.1) and video.
Concert II - Works for multi-channel sound (2 - 5.1) and video appropriate for presentation in a club setting.
Live performance works - combining live computer music and video for either concert.
A single artist will be selected and invited to perform during SIS VI.

Submission Materials (clearly identify fixed media, club, or live):
For concert proposals - DVD of the proposed piece
For live performance proposal - DVD or URL documentation of your work
Include a cd with:
Brief program notes (200 words)
Brief artist bio (200 words)
Email and snail mail address - Required for contact
