The University of Chicago CHIME Studio invites students from U Chicago, U Illinois, Northwestern, and Western Michigan to participate in a two day festival of electronic and electro-acoustic music.
The festival will be held on April 5 and 6, 2018 at the Logan Center at the University of Chicago. Those interested should petition to their own faculty member, who will curate participation: Eli Fieldsteel, Christ Mercer, Christopher Biggs, and Sam Pluta.
The following resources will be available at the festival:
8 Channel Sound System
Microphones, gear, etc
High quality projector and screen
DIY electronic, Composer-Performed, and fixed media works are welcome!
There will also be a limited number of opportunities to write pieces for pianist-in-residence Daniel Pesca and members of Spektral Quartet. Please be in touch with your local faculty member to request instrumentation. This is a limited opportunity and only a small number of slots will be available with the instrumentalists.
All pieces involving instruments are due to the players no later than Feb 5, 2018.
