The SEAMUS National Conference for 2015 will take place March 27-29, at Wesleyan University, Middletown, Connecticut. See the April 2013 newsletter for an article by co-hosts Ron Kuivila and Paula Matthusen introducing the conference.
The Society for Electroacoustic Music in the United States (SEAMUS) invites proposals from institutions to host the SEAMUS 2015 National Conference. This is a three-day conference to be given, preferably, during March or April 2015. The conference will include concerts of new electroacoustic music, videos, and research presentations on a variety of topics related to electroacoustic music.
Hosting a SEAMUS conference draws national attention to an institution and its programs related to composition, computer music, and arts technology. The normal registered attendance is 150-200, drawn from faculty and students from leading academic programs, research and development professionals, and independent creative professionals from across the nation. The conference offers host faculty opportunities for national-level performances, and frequently draws renowned guest performers. It is the focal point of the ASCAP/SEAMUS student composition competition, and each year features a prominent national figure as recipient of the SEAMUS Award.
Proposals may be submitted by a member of SEAMUS who will act as host or co-host for the conference. It is highly advised that potential hosts work directly with the Director of Conferences to develop drafts and the final proposal. Sample proposals and budgets from recent conferences are available for review.
See http://www.seamusonline.org/wp-content/uploads/CFP_Host_SEAMUS2015.pdf for more details. Questions may be addressed to Christopher Hopkins, Director of Conferences.
Deadline for proposals is September 1, 2013.
It’s that odd time of the year, when we summarize the current conference, and begin to make plans for the next one! It reminds me of hearing the stories about the people who make the floats for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade: the work on next year’s floats begins the day after the Parade.

The latest issue of the SEAMUS Newsletter is here, and it’s one of our bigger issues – 20 pages! The issue’s main focus is the tribute to Milton Babbitt, who passed away earlier this year. I am thrilled that the tribute contains essays by Jon Appleton, Eric Chasalow, Hubert Howe, Peter Jarvis, Jeffrey Kresky, Paul Lansky, David Saperstein, and Robert Taub. There is also a review of Reaper, a multi-platform DAW. Also, you can read the official announcement and call for submissions for SEAMUS 2011.
All that, and Member News as well.
