For each edition of JTTP the CEC coordinates a number of public presentations of submissions in various contexts across Canada and internationally. JTTP Radio Partners typically present the Winning Works and Composers in a JTTP-dedicated show, but also sometimes play the entire compilation CD (Cache) of a particular edition. Or selections from all 48 Participants and Submissions can be made for a unique curated presentation.

In recent years winners have also been presented in prestigious festival contexts with international Partners. Montréal’s Akousma Festival presents the 1st Prize work on an annual basis in their fall festival, and the top 5 winners of JTTP 2015 were invited to perform their compositions in the relaunched KONTAKTE Festival for Electronic Music and Sound Art, produced by the Akademie der Künste Berlin (Germany).

These radio broadcasts and concert presentations of JTTP works are an excellent complement to the extensive prize packages offered to the top 5 placing composers (see the Awards, Project Partners and Support page), and through these presentations, JTTP Partners help the CEC promote the work of young / emerging composers and sound artists living in or from Canada within various national and international contexts.

Akousma Festival. Since 2005, the AKOUSMA concert series has been committed to exploring every perspective on electroacoustic music in an effort to present the most accurate portrait of the current interests of composers working in an ever more diverse field. AKOUSMA is the place to discover the work of emerging composers from the local scene as well as that of internationally established and recognized composers. The convergence of æsthetic practices encountered at AKOUSMA is indeed a reflection of the dynamic and increasingly effervescent musical world in which we live today. The series is held every autumn at Usine C in Montréal.


KONTAKTE ’15 — Festival for Electronic Music and Sound Art

Sunday 27 September 2015 @ 12h00 | Akademie der Künste Berlin (Germany) 

The winners of the 16th edition of Jeu de temps / Times Play present their works in the annual international JTTP concert. Our Partner this year is the Kontakte Festival for Electronic Music and Sound Art, produced by the Akademie der Künste (AdK) in Berlin, Germany.

Gregorio Karman, Artistic Director of the festival and of the AdK’s Studio for Electroacoustic Music, coordinated a fantastic weekend chock full of weekend of concerts, presentations and installations. The Studio for Electroacoustic Music has a long tradition as a forum and laboratory for experimental sound art and the CEC is very pleased to collaborate with them on the presentation of this concert in the 2015 edition of Kontakte.

The first edition of KONTAKTE — Festival for Electronic Music and Sound Art explores today’s internationally profiled positions in electroacoustic music and sound art. Geared towards a broad and diverse public, this three-day festival offers a space for debate and reflection on musical thought in our new media Age. From 25–27 September, a broad spectrum of music will fill the entire building of Berlin’s Akademie der Künste in Hanseatenweg. The rich programme will feature world premieres, classic avant-garde works, chamber music and live electronics in the form of concerts, sound installations, performance and films.

The name KONTAKTE is play on Stockhausen’s pioneering work of the same title (which proposed a new context for the connection of musical categories) as well as the name of a series of events coordinated in the 1980s by the Studio for Electroacoustic Music at the Akademie der Künste. The founder of the series, Georg Katzer, turns 80 this year, offering a festive occasion to relaunch KONTAKTE.
