Call for works
The Following is the Call for Works for the 60x60 project for the year

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
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
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
the total duration of the work including silence may not exceed sixty

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

Acoustic compositions should be submitted with the understanding that it
their recording that is of prime importance and is what will be used to
determine its selection. Scores of works are strongly discouraged and
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
Works generated from procedures (i.e. mathematical matrices,
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 broadcast.
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
the composer’s name, address, email, phone number, composition title,
composition length, and track position on the compact disc. Biographies
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
No works will be returned, and may be performed in subsequent
