17th Jeu de Temps / Times Play
Recent works by young and/or emerging composers and sound artists from or living in Canada are featured in the 17th edition of Jeu de temps / Times Play, coordinated annually by the CEC since 2000. JTTP 2016 events include a special concert at the Centro Mexicano para la Música y Artes Sonoras (CMMAS) in Morelia, Mexico.
Jeu de Temps / Times Play (JTTP) is an annual project aimed at supporting and encouraging new electroacoustic works by young and/or emerging sound artists from / living in Canada. A diverse international jury selects five prize-winning works as well as a collection of works for inclusion on the Cache compilation CD. A focus issue of eContact! features all submissions to the project, and a number of international radio broadcasts and concert performances are coordinated each year. Several past winners have gone on to win prizes in other renowned electroacoustic competitions internationally, such as Bourges, Métamorphoses and the SOCAN Foundation Awards.
- Myriam Boucher — Nuées (2016), videomusic
- Vanessa Massera — Éclats de feux (2016)
- Jérémie Ricard — Corrosion des alliages (2016)
- Samuel Béland — Biodôme (2016)
- Paul Tremblay — Drag (2016)
The JTTP 2016 Photo Album contains images of the winners and pictures taken at events where winning Jeu de temps / Times Play works were presented.
A total of 38 recent works by composers living in Canada, the UK and Norway were submitted to JTTP 2016. Here you can read the programme notes and composer bios for all submissions or just sit back and enjoy the pieces — acousmatic and videomusic works, and more!
Over the course of the 2016–17 year, several events feature selected works from JTTP 2016. Our annual international concert this year is hosted by CMMAS, one of the most important electroacoustic production and creation institutions in Latin America.
Each year a broad range of individuals and institutions, in Canada as well as abroad, offer a generous amount of support that is essential to the success of JTTP. Additionally, donations form extensive prize packages given to the composers of the top 5 placing works.
This year’s international jury was made up of 24 individuals having a variety of backgrounds and experiences: composers, performers, representatives from various international bodies, radio personalities, electroacoustic educators, as well as past JTTP prize winners.
