Call for music pieces and installations using Faust

We solicit original music pieces with electronics using Faust programming language. They can be electroacoustic or mixed music for solo instruments and live electronics. Two musicians will be proposed by the conference organizers playing the following instruments: a mandoline/mandole/mandoloncello player and a piano player. It is also possible for composers to provide their own musician(s) in case of a piece for another /other instrument(s), or to play their own music with theirinstrument. The artistic committee will select the pieces that will be performed in a concert of Faust pieces on December 1st in the evening.

We will also provide a piano (Yamaha C3X) for the concert on December 1st.

We also welcome proposals of installations using Faust code. Their creators will have to provide all device and material necessary for the installation.

For all these artistic proposals, composers/creators are required to put all material (score, Faust code, indications for performing, schemes, audio files in 48KHz) on a public and permanent repository for instance on Github. A one page PDF presentation of the music piece in english must be submitted as a paper, giving all indications to download the files to have a precise idea of the creation.

Workshop, demonstration or tutorial proposals

We also solicit proposals of workshops, demonstrations or tutorials. In addition to the amphitheater for the paper presentation, to the auditorium for the concert, two seminar rooms have been reserved. They are equipped with video-projectors and stereo diffusion. Each room can contain a maximum of 24 persons.

A one page PDF presentation in english of the workshop, demonstration or tutorial must be submitted as a paper.

For all submissions, feel free to contact us if you have any question.
