Call for Sonic Works

SUBMISSIONs closed

We also invite submissions of music and sonic art works for presentation at the festival. Hamburg has a long and ongoing tradition of improvised music. In the spirit of this tradition we encourage submissions of works exploring emerging trends such as comprovisation or conduction. The performance venues will be at the HAW Finkenau campus and Kampnagel.

Music for other instrumental resources will be considered, but composers will be responsible for providing their own performers. Where possible, modest financial help may be offered to facilitate this. Note that in case your piece is selected, you will need to attend the concert and pay the registration fee.

Pieces and project proposals have to be submitted via the SMC 2016 conference system.

Inquiries on submissions and concerts should be directed to the music chair Sascha Lino Lemke
