60x60
Call for works

The Following is the Call for Works for the 60x60 project for the year 2005:

Continuing to promote contemporary composer and their works, Vox Novus is inviting composers to submit works 60 seconds or less
in length to included in its third annual 60x60 project. 60 compositions will be selected to be performed continuously in a
one-hour concert, in conjunction with multimedia elements and an analog clock marking the passage of time.

During the concert each of the 60 pieces selected will begin precisely at the beginning of the minute, this will mark the end of
one piece and the beginning of another. There will be no pause between the pieces. Works may be less than 60 seconds in length,
but may not exceed 60 seconds. Works selected that are less than 60 seconds long will be “padded” with silence either before,
after, or surrounding the composition. Please note that the total duration of the work including silence may not exceed sixty
seconds.

The 60x60 project’s definition of a record work is as follows: any work created as a musical composition which is captured on
recorded media, which does not require live performers for its production in broadcast at concert halls, radio, multi-media,
etc. Its creation can include but not limited to acoustic instruments, voice, environmental sources, and computer (Sampling,
MIDI, C Sound, ProTools, etc.)

Acoustic compositions should be submitted with the understanding that it is their recording that is of prime importance and is
what will be used to determine its selection. Scores of works are strongly discouraged and will not be used in the selection
process.

Excerpts of larger works are strongly discouraged. 60x60 is a project of signature works and short works created specifically
for the 60x60 project. Works generated from procedures (i.e. mathematical matrices, organizational systems, or computer
programs,) remixed works, or themes and motives recomposed from other of the composer’s own work are acceptable.

The call is open to composers of any nationality, age, or career stage.

Works submitted must not have been previously performed or broadcasted. Compact Discs that include the audio submission must be
labeled with the composer’s name and the title of the work. The submission form must be sent at the same time with the submitted
work. Submission form must contain the composer’s name, address, email, phone number, composition title, composition length, and
track position on the compact disc. Biographies and program notes may be included on a separate sheet, but must be typed and
each may be no longer than 100 words in length.

Multiple works may be submitted. Each work must be noted on the submission form(s) and clearly indicated on the CD. Do Not send
originals! No works will be returned, and may be performed in subsequent performances after the debut concert. All submissions
must be postmarked by May 16, 2005. Selected works will be announced on September 15, 2005. Submission of the work(s) on compact
disc must be accompanied by the submission form and sent to:
