The Electroacoustic Music Association of China (EMAC) and the China
Electronic Music Center (CEMC) based at the Central Conservatory of Music in
Beijing are pleased to announce their annual conference:

MusicAcoustic 2005: Mix
October 20th through 30th (approx)
Beijing, China

The transforming soundscape of Beijing offers a heavy 'Mix' of old and
modern voices; where the old hutong and modern skyscrapers Mix amidst a
hurried development frenzy. The Conference will therefore invite research
and concerts inquiring along a broad vector that traverses the aesthetics of
Organized Sound, Electro-Acoustics (with Chinese and Western Instruments),
Microsound, Coding Experimentation and Phonography.  
With modern China as a backdrop, we think a Mix of the traditional and new
in computer/electronic/laptop music is an appropriate thematic for this call
for works, where an old/young city/country is experimenting with its own
emerging unique voice on the global music scene. Chinese composers and
academics come together once a year to plan future directions for the
development of computer music in China and to learn/exchange with their
international guests.

There are no irrelevant proposals for this week of music, practicum and
discourse: recent software developments; theory and criticism, a focus on
phonographic practice, or music with image. The conference will include
concerts, paper sessions, artist talks, discussion panels and workshops. 10
to 16 channels with subwoofer will be provided (Genelec). Workshops or
residencies are invited in the days surrounding the conference.

Deadline for proposals is June 30, 2005.
Organizing committee:

Zhang Xiaofu (Chinese Language)
President of EMAC;
Director of CEMC, Central Conservatory of Music
Kenneth Fields
CEMC, Central Conservatory of Music
and Dept of Digital Art and Design, Peking University
