Open Call for Works (Electronic)

The Atlanta Composers Blog invites local composers to submit electronic works for upcoming concerts. Composers may submit MP3s (up to a size of 14 megs) to submissions(at) (replace (at) with an @ symbol). Send whatever you have, it doesn't matter if it's been performed or broadcast before. Please send only stereo mixes (not surround sound, 5.1, etc. as the capability to play these is not assured.) Music will likely be played over a stereo PA system.

Once we have enough material for a 1.5 to 2 hour show, we'll secure a venue and date with enough time to promote the concert several weeks in advance.

We're also looking for video artists to submit ideas for visuals that might be projected or displayed during the music. Send ideas to submissions at (replace at with an @ symbol)

Thanks to those who have already submitted works. The music I've heard is great! This will be an exciting and ear-opening event.

There's lots of room left on the program, so keep those submissions coming.

Also, please make sure to include the Title of the Work, a short Program Note, and a short Description of Yourself.

One idea for the show is to have the composers come up and introduce their pieces. (I don't know how you all feel about that, you may hate the idea. :) But I'm thinking that it would be a good way for the audience to know who you are and give you greater visibility. One of the missions of the ACB is to raise public awareness of us. So this might be an interesting way to connect with the audience, and get us written up in the press. (Can you tell that I'm pushing this toward more an EVENT than just your normal CONCERT?) For those composers who decline or can't make it, me or another representative (an MC) could introduce the work.

Anyway, feel free to share your thoughts here.

And I'm looking forward to receiving more submissions from more composers.
