Toronto International Electroacoustic Symposium 2014

August 13, 2014 - August 17, 2014

Toronto, 13–17 August 2014

The Canadian Electroacoustic Community (CEC) and New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) are pleased to announce the 8th edition of the Toronto International Electroacoustic Symposium (TIES). TIES has become a consistently creative and cohesive point of contact between diverse international electroacoustic (EA) communities.

The symposium will take place Toronto at New Adventures in Sound Art’s facilities at the Artscape Wychwood Barns, from 13-17 August 2014. The Keynote Speaker this year is Pauline Oliveros.

We are now inviting proposals for papers, lecture-recitals, special sessions of 2 to 4 panellists, compositions and performances to be presented at TIES 2014 (submission deadline: 24 February 2014). [See submission details below]

General Information / Informations generales

The 2014 symposium is the eighth annual iteration of this important opportunity for exchange between diverse EA communities. In recent years, a number of themes have emerged, among them: creative and collaborative practices, curation, research and analysis, algorithmic processes, videomusic and intermedia practices, electronic ensembles and live coding.

As in preceding years, the symposium leads directly into the main concert weekend of the annual Sound Travels Festival of Sound Art. Under the theme of Undo / Redo, the 16th edition of Sound Travels explores emerging trends alongside established traditions in electroacoustic music. At the heart of TIES 2014 will be a keynote lecture by Pauline Oliveros, one of Sound Travels’ featured artists.

TIES and Sound Travels events will be presented on NAISA’s real-time spatialization system.

All symposium contributions will be webcast live, and text proceedings will be published in a forthcoming issue of the CEC’s online journal, [eContact!

We look forward to seeing you, your colleagues, collaborators and students in Toronto in August!
