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 38 Participants and Submissions to JTTP 2016 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 over the coming year the top 5 winners of JTTP 2016 are invited to perform their compositions in dedicated concerts produced by some of our newest Project Partners, CMMAS (Morelia, Mexico) and Boca del Lupo (Vancouver).
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.
