 North Country Electronic Music Festival 2017
Summary:Call for Electronic Music Performances
Deadline: 09 July 2017
Date Posted: 07 June 2017
Details: The North Country Electronic Music Festival (NCEMF) is seeking composers and performers connected to the North Country for our 2017 festival, to be held on Saturday, September 9, 2017, at ArtsRiot in Burlington, Vermont. Those selected will be given a 15 minute set on the festival.

NCEMF is presented by TURNmusic in cooperation with the South End Art Hop, and hosted by Kavlos & Damian, who will interview composers and performers live between sets. NCEMF is founded and directed by Dennis Bathory-Kitsz, Anne Decker, and David Morneau.

NCEMF is both a showcase of electroacoustic art and an opportunity to overcome weather and geography to meet other artists working in the North Country, which we define as the region of the United States and Canada that is north and east of Albany, NY.

Submission guidelines:
1) The North Country Electronic Music Festival is seeking electronic music performances for our festival on September 9, 2017, at Arts Riot in Burlington, Vermont. Performances will begin at 10am and will run through 5pm. We will work out the schedule in advance, but please plan to attend the full day in order to support your fellow north country musicians.

2) Each artist selected must present electronic music that includes a performance element. The electronic element can be fixed playback or can be generated in performance. We strongly prefer music that is electronically developed or augmented, not simply amplified or modified. So, for example, music consisting solely of a guitar plugged into a distortion pedal and amplified is not what we're looking for.

3) Each performance is limited to 15 minutes. The schedule for this event is very tight and we cannot accommodate longer works. If you are planning to perform an open or freely improvised work, please plan to bring a stopwatch or a clock to keep track of your performance. Performances shorter than 15 minutes are welcome.

4) Due to the number of pieces being presented during this event, each performance setup must be self-contained. You will be able to send two audio channels to the house system. Everything else needs to be connected within your own setup. At the event, you will be able to pre-set your gear in a designated staging area. During a break between performances you will have 5 minutes to move your setup into the performance area. Please note that there will not be time for a full sound check, only a line check to be sure that everything is working properly.
