1999 ASCAP/SEAMUS Student Competition CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

The Society for Electro-Acoustic Music in the United States (SEAMUS) is
announcing a call for submissions to the 1999 ASCAP/SEAMUS Student
Commission Competition.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The ASCAP/SEAMUS Student Commission is a program to commission an
electro-acoustic composition from a student composer. The purpose of
this program is to stimulate student participation in SEAMUS activities,
and to encourage young composers to pursue creative endeavors in
electroacoustic music. The program is administered by SEAMUS and funded
by the American Society for Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP).

A selection committee appointed by the board of directors will review
all submissions and select a group of finalists from which the winner
will be chosen. All finalists selected by the committee will have their
works performed at the 2000 SEAMUS National Conference at the University
of North Texas, in Denton, TX. During the conference, the SEAMUS Board
of Directors will review the selected compositions and determine the
winners of commission.

The winners of the ASCAP/SEAMUS Student Commission will receive the
following:

First Place

a commission for a new work in the amount of $1250
a performance of the new work at the 2001 SEAMUS National Conference
inclusion of a recording of the work in the SEAMUS Compact Disc
  Series
a certificate in recognition of the commission

Second Place
a commission for a new work in the amount of $750
a performance of the new work at the 2001 SEAMUS National Conference
