Call for New Works from Young and / or Emerging Sound Artists / Composers

Deadline for submissions: May 1, 2018 (postmarked)

What is JTTP?

A large multi-leveled project of the Communauté électroacoustique canadienne (CEC) Canadian Electroacoustic Community, JTTP is an annual project aimed at promoting and celebrating new electroacoustic works from young and/or emerging sound artists/composers from (or living in) Canada.

JTTP offers the following to the participants:

The best way to find out about the JTTP is to look over the past editions that are on the CEC’s website. From the website you can listen to the past years’ submissions, see who participated in the juries, and read the programme and biographical notes. A longer and more detailed explanation can be found here that should answer most questions.

Who is eligible?

Artists/composers from (or living in) Canada.

What is a “young and / or emerging sound artist / composer”?

This would be someone who is likely to be continuing studies in an educational facility or possibly someone for whom there has been little or no national or international recognition of their work and potential in the short period of time that they have been involved in the field.

Do I need to become a CEC member to participate in the project?

No. Participants are not required to be or become CEC members.

What about copyright?

All participants will retain full copyright of their work.

What are the submission criteria?

A complete and eligible submission package will include the following:

Audio Formats

We only accept audio files in non-compressed formats (no mp3, etc.).

Multichannel Submissions

All multichannel submissions must include:

File Naming Convention for Speaker Positioning

Use the format "lastname_keywordfromtitle_POSITION.extension" to name your files (change all special characters to Roman letters: e.g. change éèê to e, etc). Do not include any other information in the file names (e.g. bit depth or sample rate).

To indicate the speaker position for each stem, use capital letters as follows for works up to 8.1 (larger setups should be based on this model and detailed in a separate Tech Sheet):

L = left

F = front
S = side
B = behind
SUB = subwoofer
