The Goethe-Institut of Boston and the Consulate General of France Cultural Services, in partnership with Northeastern University and Harvard University, are pleased to announce the Sound In SPACE Competition, a call for electroacoustic works to be realized via Harvard University’s 32-speaker Hydra diffusion system during The Art of Interpretation Festival. Celebrating 60 Years of Electroacoustic Music Tradition in France and Germany, The Art of Interpretation Festival will take place from November 17–19, 2011, at the Fenway Center in Boston, Massachusetts.
All finalists will take part in interpretation workshops and coachings led by Prof. Hans Tutschku (Harvard University), Daniel Teruggi (GRM, France) and Ludger Brümmer (ZKM, Germany). Focus will be on the musical use of a multi-loudspeaker diffusion system and the relationship between composed spaces and their rendering in a given concert environment.
The works of the six finalists will each be published on a Festival CD recorded live at festival concerts.
