ISCM Romania, organizer of the MERIDIAN International New Music Festival, is announcing a call for AUDIO-VIDEO works to be programmed in the 16th edition of MERIDIAN between November 8-15, 2020.
The theme of this edition, PLANETARIUM, wishes to explore planets, stars, galaxies, comets, meteorites and space objects in the endless sonic cosmos of human imagination. From solar incandescence to the darkness of a black hole, the range of musical expressions is unlimited.
The call is open to composers, video and sound artists of all nationalities. There is no entry fee or age limit. Priority will be given to works shorter than 10 minutes in duration and to works that have a stronger connection to the theme of the festival. The works must be presented in fixed media format: stereo audio and single-channel video (no live electronics and/or performers can be accommodated). Only completed works will be accepted.
Submissions should be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the email subject “Planetarium AV Submission” until June 1st, 2020. Each participant may submit only one audio-video work. Submissions must include:
- a permanent link to the work for playback (e.g., YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) – no transfer links or attachments are accepted at this point;
- the title, year, and program notes for the work;
- a short biography of the artist (in English).
The final selection will be announced on the festival’s website, snr-simc.org, and the official MERIDIAN and ISCM Romania Facebook pages after July 1st, 2020.
