This is a preliminary Call for Works created specifically for
multi-speaker systems, 4.1 to 8.1. Works of any duration will be
considered although pieces of under 30 minutes will be given
preference. Works are required to have a technical note on how the
multi-channel format was integrated into the piece.

Composers / sound artists are invited to send completed pieces, or
notification of work in progress for consideration. The medium of
performance is ADAT or DA-88.

While the composers of the selected works are encouraged to attend
the Symposium/ Festival, attendance is not required for a work to be
presented, or a paper presentation to be published.

The official Call for Participation will be presented in two weeks
time along with details and technical specifications.
