ISCM World Music Days 2015 - call for works
The call for works is now open for the 2015 ISCM World Music Days in Slovenia on 26 September - 1 October 2015.
As the Australian section of the ISCM, the Australian Music Centre is looking for scores, projects or installations to include in their official submission. The AMC will convene a panel who will select 6 works for consideration by the ISCM festival jury. At least one work from every official submission will be performed.
Submissions to the Australian section should be sent to the AMC by 5pm on 30 September 2014 by email. For work categories, please see the ISCM World Music Days 2015 website. For a list of required attachments, see below.
A dropbox link is preferred for large attachments and must be supplied if the combined size of files exceeds 9MB. Digital files can also be sent by mail on a CD or DVD to: Australian Music Centre, ISCM World Music Days submissions, PO Box N690, Grosvenor Place, NSW 1220. All materials should be clearly marked with the composer's name and reach the AMC by 30 September.
Submissions to the AMC should include:
1) Pdf score, or audio/video documentation (for
compositions/projects without a written score)
2) Audio or video recording of the work where possible
3) Short biography of the composer in English (max. 150 words)
4) Program note of the submitted work in English (max. 150 words)
5) Technical rider with the specifications of all equipment necessary to perform the work

Individual artists whose work does not get selected by the section may also submit directly to ISCM. Deadline for individual submissions is 31 October 2015 (postmark), and a payment of €50 is required - information about the application process for individual submissions and the payment procedure is available on the website.
