[Jeu de temps / Times Play 2014]
Radio Launch, Broadcasts, Concerts and Other Events
Another component of the annual Jeu de temps / Times Play project is the public presentation of selected works in various contexts in Canada and internationally. There are different formats for these events, but all have the same goal of helping the CEC to promote the work of young and/or emerging composers and/or sound artists living in or from Canada in various national and international contexts.
Several radio broadcasts are coordinated that present the top 5 winning works from JTTP 2014, while some of our Radio Partners allot a complete show in order to be able to play the entire Cache 2014 CD, a compilation of eight works selected by the international jury. In other cases, such as the DEGEM WebRadio presentation this year, the Partner makes a choice from amongst all the submissions (this year we received 50 submissions in total) to create their own curated presentation.
With this year’s 15th edition, a new practice of having winners presented in prestigious festival contexts has begun. Among our newest partners are Montréal’s Akousma Festival, who have committed to presenting the 1st Prize work on an annual basis in their fall festival, and Festival Dias de Música Electroacústica (DME), our special JTTP 2014 partner. The CEC collaborated with DME this year to present three concerts, including one featuring the winning JTTP 2014 works.
These radio and concert presentations are an excellent complement to the extensive prize packages awarded to the top 5 placing composers, and we are very happy and proud to be have these generous individuals and institutions offering their continued support to the project!
