[Jeu de temps / Times Play 2017]
Events, Concerts and Radio Broadcasts
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 present the 5 Winning Works and Composers in a JTTP-dedicated show, or may programme the entire compilation CD (Cache) of a particular edition. Or selections from all 35 Participants and Submissions to JTTP 2017 can be chosen for a unique, curated presentation of the project.
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 in April 2018, the top 5 winners of JTTP 2017 have been invited to perform their compositions in a dedicated concert in Edmonton’s Sea of Sound Festival, co-produced by BEAMS — the Boreal Electro-Acoustic Society (Edmonton, Canada) and the University of Alberta.
The various public 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.
